Ravine Flyer II is the biggest reason to visit the park. The long awaited wooden coaster from Gravity Group flows from the top of the lift hill down the ravine to the bluffs below. The power of the ride doesn't let up until the train hits the final brake run. Steel Dragon is a solid Maurer Sohne spinning coaster.

Whacky Shack and Pirates Cove are two Bill Tracy creations that are so rare in these times.

The park also has a selection of traditional flat rides. Ali Baba (Flying Carpet) and X-Scream (Drop Tower) are the most thrilling of the flats.
Snacks and desserts are some of the better food options at Waldameer. The prices are fair and variety is limited. Another option at Waldameer is to bring your own food. The park even provide free grills if you bring the charcoal. The parking lot very close to the BBQ area.

Please note: all purchases in the parks are cashless so you need to load money on to a Wally Card for food/games and purchases.
