“A LITTLE JEWEL”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is a wonderful park nestled next to Presque Isle in Erie, Pa.
If you have never visited you should!
Old time charm with current rides and water park. Fun for all ages.
The best thing about this park is the picturesque setting. Lots of old
trees and beautiful flowers.
There is NO CHARGE for going in the park unless you want to ride or
go to waterpark!!!!

“Waldameer "small' but WOWS”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

We really enjoyed a full day at Waldameer Park last summer. The "new" roller coaster was the WOW! factor Loved it and rode it several times. Great ride!!
The other rides traditional fun: Ferris wheel, Wild mouse...the smallish park offered fun snacks too at decent Erie prices.
The Water park was full, looked fun, separate admission so will try next visit.

“Very Affordable and Fun”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

A very nice park, especially if you have younger children. The rides are not top notch, but the place is affordable and clean.

“Hard to find a better small park!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Waldameer has been a landmark in Erie for over a century and continues to grow. While not as aboundant as other large parks, a large variety of rides and slides are available for all ages. Most rides accomodate children and parents with 30-36" height requirements. However, older children, teens, and adults will find some thrills in the world-class Ravine Flyer II roller coaster (better than most coasters at large parks), Thunder River (a top-notch flume), Xscream drop tower, Mega Vortex, and Steel Dragon spinning coaster. To add to that, Waldameer has two unique, creepy, but not too scary darkrides Whacky Shack and Pirates Cove. In addition to the rides, Water World, while a little dated, still offers some great slides for children, teens, and adults.

The park itself is very clean and well-kept, staffed with friendly workers, and reasonably priced with several pricing options and promotions.

“Awesome Park/Waterpark”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Waldameer is one of those old style amusement parks where there is no admission fee. You can either buy an all day wristband, or just pay as you go. There is also a picnic area where you can bring in your own food if you want. There are plenty of different kinds of rides for all ages, and a super water park with tons of slides. We spent the entire day there until 10:00 pm and had a great time. We will be back!
