In 2008, the park evoked the memory of its circa-1922 coaster, Ravine Flyer, by unveiling the world-class Ravine Flyer II. The hybrid coaster, which cost $6 million, features a steel structure and wooden track. It uses its namesake ravine to drop 115 feet and reach a top speed of 57 mph. Other coasters include the junior woodie, Comet (which was built in 1951), and the spinning coaster, Steel Dragon. Ride fans sing the praises of Whacky Shack, Waldameer's classic dark ride. The park also offers the usual suspects such as spinning rides, a drop tower ride, and kiddie rides. Since admission is free, guests can enjoy Waldameer's shows for nada.
WaterWorld, Waldameer's water park, includes a couple of speed slides, enclosed body slides, a lazy river, a 2-person raft ride, a whirlpool sauna, and an area for younger guests.
