If this ride doesn't live up to the Gravity Group's reputation of building rides to try and break your ribs, this will be a lot of fun.

^It's funny because it's true.

This looks like a really nice coaster, and it is nice that it is finally being built. Although there does not seem to be anything unique(except the bridge) about this coaster, it still looks like great ride. There should be a lot of airtime, and it seems to have many of Gravity Groups trademark 90* turns. If I go out east again this summer, I'm definitely going to try and stop here as Waldameer looks like a nice park with one potentially great coaster.

One potentially great coaster, and another coaster that has already been established as great fun. Steel Dragon is one of the better spinning mice I've been on.

Yeah, Steel Dragon was really smooth and I had a really good spin going. It's not been raped on the fairground circuit like other coasters of the model, so it's still got the best its years left.

I want to ride this coaster sometime next year, how long does it take to drive from Cedar Point..?

When does the bridge get built, is it soon..?

The monster footers were in forms, but it looked like not much had been done yet for each of them.

I would love to head out to the park for a few hours this coming summer. I'm hoping for a Kennywood, Cedar Point vacation and I was wondering if I should stop off at Waldameer. I was thinking if I did go my schedule would be something like this.

Sunday 6/15 - kennywood
Monday 6/16 - Waldameer/Cedar Point
Tuesday 6/17 - Cedar Point
Wednesday 6/18 - Cedar Point

Would I be able to go to Waldameer on a Monday, and get a few rides on Ravine Flyer II and a few rides on the other rides, if I get there at opening and left mid-early afternoon? Help much appreciated.

Donkeys are my way of life!
