Great for the younger kids, our favorite amusement park and we cannot wait to see the updated water area. This park is more old fashioned and doesn't get as crowded as most of the parks near Pittsburgh, definitely worth the trip.

For a small amusement park it is huge! This place is clean and fun the wooden roller coaster goes across a busy street and is a great place to catch a view of Lake Erie. Awesome water park. This place grows every year.

I always love going here. It's very fun and nice to take the whole family to. It's getting quite pricey for a small town but it's expanding and more and more fun each time we go. I recommend to go every time.

We get season passes every year. We enjoy the water park the most. As senior citezens it is just our speed. There are a few rides our age group could ride as well but we leave the roller coasters up to the younger generations.

We have had wonderful experiences at Waldameer. Our best plan is to hit the water park early and then ride the rides. We basically swam from 12-2 and then had a late lunch. We were easily able to ride all of the slides and enjoy...More
