I remember going to Waldameer when I was a child. I thought it was great, but now it goes beyond words. They have continually upgraded the Park with new rides and water attractions. I took my 5 year old Grandson there this past summer and he had a blast, you would have thought someone gave him the world. At the... More

We have been going to Waldemeer for 35 years. Every year it gets better. Lots of little kids rides and school age children can ride many rides by themselves. Not Cedar Point but not as expensive either 👍🏻. There is also a very nice age friendly water park. Fun for everyone.

A great place to visit with the whole family. A hot day in the water park and the evening riding the rides with no lines to beat like in the bigger parks, I.e., Cedar Point, it's a place you can visit several times in a summer...

A great amusement and water park. They have good mix of rides for all. Everybody was happy and cheerful. No entry and parking fees were a delight. Loved the place.

The owner here has done a fabulous job building and expanding this park. It's a family owned park, but operates like the big boys. It now has the best water park for hundreds of miles. They have the largest wave pool in three states. There are rides for all ages, and new rides are added regularly. If you like roller... 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
