Waldameer Prepares for Opening Day

Posted: Updated:

Waldameer opens a week from tomorrow. So workers are now very busy making sure the amusement park is ready for the opening day crowds.

 The park is now crowded with employees and some contractors. Crews are painting, power washing, cutting wood, and doing last minute maintenance on rides. With only a week before the season opens, crews are working longer days.

Longtime maintenance employee Perry Duncan said, "The hours are getting longer of course. Most of us here do 10 hour days. But now we will be going into 12 hour days."

 Waldameer Owner Paul Nelson said, "Our guys work until the work is done."

 Some of the key changes customers will see is the new Music Express ride, a rebuilt ferris wheel, and and improvements to provide a smoother ride on the Ravine Flyer 2 coaster.
