Waldameer is located at the entrance to Presque Isle adjacent to Lake Erie. Parking was convenient to the front gate. Entry to the park is free. The park is smaller and more compact than parks like Cedar Point, but the rides are well spaced and there is sufficient landscaping to provide a comfortable atmosphere. The lines to most rides and...

Love it for families - free parking - pay for water park or go into the amusement park and pay for the rides you want to ride - makes it easier for families staying with kids who have different ideas of what they want to do and what rides they will ride on.

I remember how excited I was as a child going to Waldameer every Summer. Now my children get the same excitement when we plan our annual trip! It has grown so much over the years! The Wally Card is smart but my husband finds it an inconvenience. Only because we have to locate each other to get our shared card... More

This classic lake side amusement park, overlooking the Lake Erie shoreline still retains all it’s charm. Unlike those big modern theme parks you can pop in and out in just a few hours, and since rides are still buy ticket (that’s right NO admission fee) it won’t break the bank. The park is idea for younger kids with few “big-kid... More

No matter who is going - the family, a group of friends, or a couple - there is something to do at Waldameer for everyone. One ride-o-rama pass gets you on all the rides all day, so you can have fun rom sun up to sun down! The good thing about the park is that you can get into it... More

Waldameer is the perfect family park, with a water park, a ride park, admission is free, parking is free, you only pay for what you want to do -- or buy an all inclusive bracelet -- it makes taking the family affordable -- they have lots of rides that we remember from Idlewild and Kennywood in Pittsburgh up there -...

The most memorable is The Ravine Flyer 2 coaster. A fun fast and intense ride. A must ride if you like coasters. There are four coasters.The Steel Dragon... More

This is the best little gem that we have found in a long time. My sister and niece invited us along a few weeks ago to go with them. Neither of us had been there but I had heard about it over the years working for AAA. There is no admission into the park, however, to ride you will need... More

Good place for kids. Their rides don't have tall height requirements so my 8 yr old could ride everything and that was great for her. Close to presque isle so we went to the beach and then back to the park. Convenient to go fir a few rides or a ride all day pass. Will be back.
