Mid-Summer Scream a Success

This past Saturday, two local coaster enthusiast groups met in the middle at Waldameer to enjoy a shared picnic affair. The Great Ohio Coaster Club and the Western New York Coaster Club shared a wonderful meal in Waldameer's picnic grove and then screamed their hearts out on all of Waldameer's fantastic rides including the Ravine Flyer II. As the last coaster groups to visit Waldameer for this season, it was great to see old friends and faces at many of the member's home park. Thanks for a great season and we can't wait until next year!

Great Britain Strikes Again!

Another great coaster club from across the pond (RCCGB) visited Waldameer on the 30th to introduce many of its members to the World Class twists and turns of the Ravine Flyer II. All of the enthusiasts had no idea where they were going on this fateful day but were elated to find out the surprise! ERT was had before the park opened and many smiles and screams were heard by the riders. Lunch arrived as an all-you-can-eat buffet next to the coaster with speeches, chants and more cheers! Dessert was a behind the scenes tour of the Ravine Flyer II which was enjoyed by all. Of course, before their 6:00pm departure, the club members also enjoyed Waldameer's other fabulous coasters including the Comet, Ravine Flyer III and the Steel Dragon. With minor transportation issues to round out the night, everyone made it safely back to their lodging. Dreams of coaster rides danced in everyone's head!
Waldameer had a wonderful time catering to the Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain and wants to thank all who have enjoyed our family-owned park!
