Waldameer – new for 2011

When Waldameer opens for the 2011 season on May 7, it will unveil an expansion at the north end of the park with three new rides. Here’s some exclusive construction shots from the Pennsylvania park.

Located between the Sea Dragon and the Ravine Flyer II, the area will feature three new family rides from Zamperla rides including a wave swinger, tea cups and Rockin’ Tug. The attractions will be called the Flying Swings, Wendy’s Tea Party and the SS Wally respectively.

Beautiful gardens, benches, an 8ft-tall water fountain and a 20-foot arch will also contribute to the relaxing, carefree atmosphere, while Waldameer’s L Ruth Express Train will be replaced by a brand new engine in 2011. This new CP Huntington from Chance Morgan will transport riders on a smooth and relaxing ride through the park. A wheelchair accessible coach will be included.
