It's a Winter Walda-land!

Brrrrr! It sure got cold again!  This winter is truly living up to the Farmers Almanac prediction of cold and snowy.  However, the cold and snow did not stop us at Waldameer from keeping busy as usual.  This week, by popular demand, we set out through the entire park to capture what Waldameer looks like during its winter rest.  Enjoy your "Winter Walda-land" walk in the park!

The Walda-log is lonely without visitors taking pictures each day.
I don't think Comet is flying at intergalactic speeds today.
Mega Vortex all "huddled up" to keep warm.
Not too much fire coming from Steel Dragon right now.
Wipeout appears to be missing something. I wonder why"?"
The river has frozen over.  Ice skating anyone?
Polar Vortex with a chance of Big Thundersnow.
The louder you scream, the faster May 10th will arrive!

If you simply can't get enough of Waldameer in the offseason from our Blog, Facebook, and Twitter, you will be excited to know that yet another book was published which features a chapter dedicated to Waldameer.  Great Pennsylvania Amusement Parks Road Trip features in-depth interviews with our owner Paul Nelson, and engineers from Gravity Group who designed our award-winning Ravine Flyer II. In addition, you find several other pictures and readings exploring all of Waldameer Park as well as many other chapters featuring our Pennsylvania amusement park neighbors.

Don't forget about another Waldameer Book written by a Historian for the National Amusement Park Historical Association, Jim Futrell.  You will be fascinated for hours with pictures and passages all the way back from Waldameer's beginnings in 1896 up until the 2013 season.  You can find more information and purchase a copy in our Online Store.

Before we embark on our next journey, we would like to take the time to thank all of you for being such loyal fans of our re-launched WaldaBlog.  Our previous post alone, Mapping Out What's New for 2014, has already had more views than every post in past three years and the second most views of all time.  Once again, we cannot thank each and every one of you enough, as this would not be possible without you!
