Joel Bullock, aka The Coaster Critic, stopped by the park recently to ride the Ravine Flyer II. He's ridden nearly 200 coasters in over 20 parks. His website received the Best Theme Park Blog Coaster Web Award. He was also featured in the New York Times about Pennsylvania's coasters. So basically, he's a pretty big deal.
The Ravine Flyer II is his 5th favorite wooden coaster and 8th favorite coaster overall.
He also interviewed President Steve Gorman while he was here. This is a portion of the interview:
Waldameer's Plans for 2010
Steve Gorman shared an exclusive during our interview. When asked about plans for 2010, he confirmed rumors that the park was looking to add a flat ride. He cautioned that it depended on the park's performance this year; which of course can be affected by the weather. The flat ride they plan on adding will be a chair swing known as Yo-Yo.
