Very fun, family oriented time. New rides and nice water park. They have a new wave pool this year. The lockers have to be paid with a card though, not cash. Picnic area is big. You can leave your things there and we didn't need to worry about it.

This reminded me of the Geagua Lake in Ohio back in the 80's when I was a kid (before it expanded into 6 flags). Small, but fun, beautiful location, laid-back with shorter lines. The water park is fun, too. Can't wait to go back.

The weather was rainy but this park is just adorable. A nice family park. Everyone had a fun and relaxing day. The rides are not too crazy.

We enjoyed the rides with our grandson, and had a great time. Lines weren't that long on a Tuesday, and we couldn't of asked for better weather. They didn't seem to have enough help, they had to jump between rides, so sometimes noone was at a specific ride. All in all a great place for family!

Was able to visit last week for a youth event. Even all us group leaders had a blast [ages 23-30]. And the teens liked it too. They've added a lot of rides since the last time I was there. And the Water World park is revamped and includes a great new wave pool. Not a coaster park, but the ravine... More

I've been coming here since I was a kid and now I get to bring my family and friends with there kids. Water world is good when it's warmer outside, it can get pretty cold in Erie. So always have layers with you. Plenty of picnic areas to eat, and if you want to rent for a party, they have... More

They just added a really big wave pool this year, lazy river and lots of slides. Small amusement park with a lot of fun rides.

Went to Waldameer with 2 kids, ages 10 & 4. The Water Park is okay. We went in June. The water was very cold. We couldn't even enjoy the Lazy River. The Water Park is a little old and run down. And there are a few odd rules - like you cannot wear sunglasses in the water without a neck... More

This is a small family park with a water park as well as rides. We didn't go to the water park which has a separate fee but it looked like it would be fun! We did an evening visit and even though we're senior citizens, we did hit several rides. It was a 400 mile drive to get here. Otherwise... More

We went during the middle of the week and loved the rides and being able to go on any of them without hardly a wait at all. The park was the perfect size for us, not too much walking and just enough rides for all of us to enjoy. Definitely suggest buying the day pass, though, instead of tickets.....if you... More
