This was our first visit, but we will be back. The park was clean and the staff was helpful. I like the idea of not paying to enter the park, and paying for individual rides (via points and a bracelet). This allows parents and grandparents to enjoy the park without having to shovel out any money with the kiddies ride... More

I grew up in Erie, PA and Waldameer was always a part of our summers! My family would all go together at least once a summer for our church or school picnics. Lots of rides and games for all ages, sizes, and skill levels, and enjoyable to walk around and watch your younger kids play even if you're not up... More

We had lots of fun in the park and water world. It's a fun place to play afterwards, we went to U Wanna Pizza and A Pie at 2430 West 8th street for some delicious pizza and dessert. What a treat! You must go to both places. Thank you.

One of the best places kids can go and adults can go and enjoy without paying to get in to the park. But the water park adults have to pay. But just to sit and watch enjoy food and games it's great without riding. Recommend highly

This place is for kids of all ages. The rides cater to everyone. The water park is a huge hit with our family. The wave pool is wonderful and now the kiddie section. They have picnic tables for cookouts, free parking. Entertainment. Make sure you try the fudge!

Waldameer is a great place for families and couples. They just charge for rides, not for entering the park, so it's economical for families and large groups. Great picnic grounds for family reunions, birthday parties and other gatherings. They keep adding rides, so this is an up-to-date amusement park with something for everyone. A must-visit attraction in Erie!
