Rumor Has It...

MYTH: The all-day Ride-A-Rama pass (just rides) DOES NOT include the Ravine Flyer II.

FACT: It does. The only time the RF II was not included in the Ride-A-Rama was the ride's opening weekend, May 17 and 18.

We've had several phone calls about this so I though I'd straighten it out.

While I'm on the subject, the all-day Ride-A-Rama pass is $19.45. If you want to only ride the RF II, it would be $4.50 with individual ride tickets.

From now on, I'll never speak of such boring subjects. But hopefully I will be able to confirm or deny Walda-rumors if you have any...

Memorial Weekend 5-25

From Crackle: Memorial Weekend 5-25


Since it's Memorial Day weekend, we had our traditional fireworks display. I included a video of it above. Nothing says "God bless America" like hotdogs, cotton candy, fireworks, and non-alcoholic beverages! We're having another fireworks display today. So start up the charcoal barbeque, sit back, and push play...

It's Official!

Drumroll please....tada!

The Ravine Flyer II is now officially open and ready for business! We've only been waiting 10 years. Talk about quick results! Whew, now that's over, we can build a new ride! Hopefully it won't take as long though. Anyways, one more week and Waldameer will be open everyday for the rest of the season. Except for Mondays...even Walda-employees need to rest every once and a while. That was all the excitement for last weekend...

In other news: the Potato Patch concession stand by the Water World entrance will be opening tomorrow. It has been newly remodeled. The fries will be better than ever, I promise! I'll be trying to post footage of the new attractions for this season. So look for all that good stuff in my upcoming posts!

This is the official blog of Waldameer in Erie, Pa. For information on prices, schedules, employment, group discounts, and picnics, visit the Waldameer website. This blog will feature news about the park, upcoming events or promotions, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the park itself. Waldameer is opening on Mother's Day weekend, May 10 and 11. The 2008 season will be an exciting one due to the completion of the long-awaited Ravine Flyer II roller coaster. The coaster will debut on Saturday, May 17 at 12 PM. The first seats will be awarded to the winners of the auction hosted by Connoisseur Media, Jet-TV, and Erie Times News. All proceeds benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Bidding on these seats ends 11:59 on May 14. More postings are soon to follow! Thanks for visiting!
