Experience 117 Years of Waldameer

Ever wonder what Waldameer looked like in the 1930s? What about the original Rainbow Gardens ballroom or the original Ravine Flyer coaster?

Jim Furtrell, historian for the National Amusement Park Historical Association and friend of Waldameer, has captured the story of our park in a history book published this year. The best part is the book is full of photographs, like the ones below.

Jim's book can be purchased on our online store for $19.99 or here at the park in the Gift Shop.
1920s: Waldameer Midway

1930s: The original Ravine Flyer coaster station.


1935: Rainbow Gardens dance hall
 
1980s: Kiddieland bumper boats
