For Immediate Release
On Monday December 5th, at approximately 8am a beautiful new train will be delivered to Waldameer. The train was built by Chance Manufacturing of Wichita, Kansas and includes a wheelchair accessible car directly behind the engineer. This new train will join Waldameer’s existing L. Ruth Express Train, doubling the ride’s capacity. A new “Happy Smiles” swing ride will also be added for the 2012 season which permits parents to ride with their younger children. Other additions include the modernization of our classic Comet coaster with a state-of-the-art magnetic braking system enabling a second coaster train to run, and a new loading system for the popular Whacky Shack ride-through fun house. Each of these additions greatly increase ride capacity to help keep lines shorter on busy days, enabling visitors to enjoy more riding and even less waiting. Waldameer will also see the addition of two new midway games – a Lucky Duck game for families and a slingshot game for teens and adults. Waldameer’s arcade will now be run by Family Entertainment Group to create a more visually appealing, engaging and fun atmosphere for the entire family to enjoy. Three brand new live musical shows also debut in 2012. Some of the behind the scene improvements at the park for the coming season include the construction of a new workshop with a loading bay and a new computer and data storage system. Waldameer Park Season Passes are now available on our website at waldameer.com or at the Park office Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm for the 2012 season. This is Waldameer’s third season for season passes and only a limited number of passes will be available which are sure to sell out early. In our first two years selling season passes they sold out very quickly. Sales are beginning now to allow customers the opportunity to purchase Season Passes as holiday gifts.
