August 5, 2014 - Erie's favorite amusement park is gearing up for a major expansion. The water park will soon see major renovations. The big change, a wave pool that will be able to hold about a thousand or more people. The pool will be constructed in the parking south of the railroad tracks.

Waldameer President Steve Gorman said this expansion has been in the works for 20 years; "On nice days, our water park does very well, and we're at capacity right now on busy days so we need to grow it and a wave pool is a real great addition."

The expansion is set to be complete in 2015.
