This park is in a great location right on Lake Erie next to presque isle. They have something for everyone to do they have kiddie rides, a huge waterpark, awesome thrill rides, and everything in between. You can get great views of the lake and surrounding areas from atop the ferris wheel, the drop tower, and the Ravine Flyer 2... More

If you live in Erie, buy the summer membership. Its a great park for rides and a fabulous water park. The place is kept immaculate. The food is reasonably priced. They run a very efficient and well maintained property. The best part is you can ride over and over. Its not the long lines like at Cedar Point. Take waters... More

Prices are decent. Rides are fun for all ages. Me, myself I stick with the not so fast rides such as the Tilt-A-Whirl, skyride, the original wooden roller coaster and a few others. Seems like each year they come out with a new ride which is nice. Food is fairly priced for an amusement park and you could always take... More

You can get in for free just to take a look and see whats there. Its a beautiful park with many cool rides and attractions. Its also very close to other cool things like Presque Isle. Great for children and families.

This park is small. But it nice for all ages. There are rides and a water park. The lazy river is the best! The rides are awesome and so are the food!

There aren't many parks in the country that will let you enter, walk around and order carnival food without paying admission! We love this local amusement park with a not just one but two wooden coasters! Get a full day of fun for the whole family as there are rides and slides for even the little ones. Great new kiddie...

We go to Waldameer Park every time we come to Erie. Free to get in and lots of entertainment, good park food and good water park. You get to ride any ride you want...No long lines like Kennywood! Check it out next summer! Good for wheelchairs and strollers

The park is a throw back to when kids tugged their parents around an Amusement Park, pointing out rides they wanted to go on, games of chance they wanted Dad to attempt, food of every description, and souvenirs to commemorate the visit. The sights and sounds are familiar to one and all and this place has been going a long... More

A nice park that you do not need to pay to get in. Rides are excellent, especially the Ravine Flyer which is a wooden coaster on steel supports. Great way to spend the day with the family(all ages). Something for everyone and the food is good and reasonably priced.

We love the park. Not to big but the right size. They also have a water park that the kids loved. The one thing I like is if you don't ride you do not pay to get in the park.
