My fiancee and I took our three year old twin grandchildren for an afternoon of fun. We our purchased full park tickets for them and of course, just waterpark tickets for ourselves, no need to buy expensive ride tickets when your guests are only three. They had a great time, and, those types of rides for little ones have come... More

This park reminds me of the amusement parks from my childhood with classic games and rides. The Ravine Flyer II roller coaster is great, and the Whacky Shack is one of my favorite attractions even though it is cheesy. My family and I visit this park each year and we all enjoy it. Additionally the park has shaded picnic areas... More

I've been going to this place since I was a kid and I just brought my 2 year old here for the first time. It was a bit crazy-crowded but I'm glad to see they are doing good business.

This park is the perfect size! People of all ages will love it here. They have fun musical shows and wally the bear walks around to greet children. The water park is an additional cost but well worth it. You wont regret a visit to this classic

This was a small amusment/water park with all the thrills of a huge park. My family and I spent a couple of hours there and there were a lot of firsts for us all. The Cyclone and Flying Ravine II were wood coasters that were thrilling to say the least! The water park also had lots of thrills and chills,... More

We went to Waldameer yesterday with a total of 8 kids (ranging from age 1 to 12). This place is perfect for a day trip with young kids (even older ones too). There are so many smaller rides for young kids (my kids in particular are ages 3 & 5) and they had a blast. They even rode the smaller... More

A very nice smaller park. Loved the fact that it is smaller, not a lot of walking in between rides, makes it easier on Grandmas and Grandpas to keep up. Ky daughter was able to ride all the rides she loved several times, it wasn't overcrowded, a perfect place for a six year old. Going back for sure!

On the way home from our vacation, we decided to take an extra day to check out this charming picnic/amusment/water park in Erie. With no fee for parking or admission (pay as you go) we felt it would be a good bet with our young daughter, who doesn't need the big thrill rides. It was a good call! We brought... More

They had multiple rides! The water park had more the expected we enjoyed every bit of it. Tubes were available for everyone. The lines were long from how busy but they were definitely worth the wait. The amusement park had great rides also for smaller an older kids. Great games room plus fun family games around the park. Food available... More

Waldameer is a great family orientated park. Our family has been going there yearly for over 15 years. Never once have we had a negative experience in all those years except the exception of thunder storms one year that forced the closure (for safety) late one evening. The park is very clean and the price is exceptional. There is something... More
