Waldameer prepares for new speed slide installations

Local News

When you look outside, sliding down a waterslide is the last thing you might think about.  That is, unless you’re planning a multi-million dollar waterslide upgrade.  And, that upgrade is coming to Waldameer Park and Water World.

The improvements include taking out the two-speed slides and replacing them with six-lane racing slides where you’ll be able to race your opponent down the steep slides. 

Owner Paul Nelson tells us,  “We want to be new, we want the area to grow in Erie, but you have to get off your butt to do it”.

Nelson says they should start construction on the new slides by next September and hopefully will have them ready for the 2020 season.
