  • The only attraction that looked busy was their pool, and the water park, but I wasn't impressed by the site of kids standing in line at the sides of slides

      My daughters and I took time and money out to visit Waldameer amusement Park just off Presque Isle in Erie, PA. We went up a week early to put my oldest daughter in her dorm.

      We had a terrible time. The park was over-crowded with school buses full of travelers. All I could think was that they must have got a discount. We come from Schuylkill County in Pennsylvania


      and we are very near Knoebel’s Grove Park.

      Perhaps Knoebel’s has ruined us for anywhere else, but at Waldameer, the prices were high for what you got, the lines were long,the rides were short, and even though the area is beautiful, the only people there seemed to be from somewhere else, and the rides sub-standard. The only part we liked was when the ferris wheel stopped at the top and ...


      • you could see the breakers on Lake Erie. There were flying bugs and the place smelled of old cheese and dead popcorn.

        I always worry at attractions when people that live there aren’t there. The ticket-takers looked bored out of their skulls. The only attraction that looked busy was their pool, and the water park, but I wasn’t impressed by the site of kids standing in line at the

        sides of slides. There was a sense of a last great hurrah, and then it should have sunk into the ground like the building at the end of the movie, “Carrie.” I was almost upset that it didn’t. They are attempting to build a higher roller coaster that will straddle the road to Presque Isle, but it just looks like more of the same.

        Save your money, go somewhere else!
