News & Rumors

Erie, Pennsylvania





Park News - (5/13/15) An opening weekend report as well as waterpark expansion update for Waldameer has been posted to CoasterTalkNoBSZone this week.


2016 - Kiddie Waterpark Expansion - Confirmed - (12/21/15) Waldameer Park has announced a phase-2 expansion to their waterpark for 2016 that will include a new spray ground and a new water play structure, complete with 8 mini slides for the kiddies. Unfortunately, there was no mention at all about the previously rumored plans of adding a bowl-slide to the waterpark. Perhaps this will be on deck for 2017 instead. Meanwhile you can also find a few off-season pictures of the park posted this week to Coaster-Nation who took park in a special winter tour of the park's faculties.
    (8/31/15) According to the latest rumor, Waldameer Park is pushing ahead with the rumored plans to add a water fortress attraction to the waterpark in 2016. I'm told it will likely go into an open spot near the new wave pool.
    (3/18/14) If the rumors are true, Waldameer will continue to expand the waterpark in 2016 with the addition of some new kiddie slides, likely attached to a rumored new water fortress play structure. The park also also look into adding a Bowl slide of some kind as well this season.
    (3/18/13) It is still several years out but I’ve heard it said that the park would like to add some kind of new bowl slide to the waterpark by 2016 or 2017. As with any plans this far out, they have lots of time to change their mind or buy something new that comes along instead.


icon_STOP2017 - Waterpark Expansion 2 - Planned - (8/15/16) A reader reports that a billboard has been put up next to the land clearing promoting that the site will be used for a new splash fortress style attraction next season.  Sorry... no Bowl Slide yet it seems for Waldameer.




Photos sent in from Waldameer Park shows off what looks like ground clearing next to the park's wavepool, which would seem to indicate that something new may come to the waterpark for 2017. Perhaps this is the Bowl Slide that was mentioned years ago that has been in limbo so far.


icon_STOP2018?? - Waterpark Expansion 3 - Planned - (8/29/16) A reader visiting Waldameer Park came across some banners posted on the wall at the new construction area. Unfortunately the images are tiny, but we can see the newly announced splash fortress expansion on one of them, listed as "2nd Expansion" which was placed by the wave pool area, but another banner listed as "3rd Expansion" shows off the long awaited Bowl slide and was placed along the right side of the food service area. Nothing was said about a timeline, but I'm guessing the Bowl slide may now be in the pipeline for 2018.
