Waldameer Crews Prepare for Opening Day

Posted: Updated:
A lot of work is now underway to get everything ready for opening day at Waldameer. The amusement park opens for the season a week from tomorrow.
 More than 30 maintenance workers are now busy testing the rides to make sure everything is safe and ready for the May 10th opening.
 A lot of work is done over the winter months. But it takes 6-8 weeks of spring work, outside, to put everything back together, then do testing and inspections.
 Maintenance employee Jacob Griffith said, "Just make sure everything is safe for everyone. Just double check your work and make sure everything is good to go."
Next week, out-of-town inspectors will be at the park to closely look at all the rides.
 Steve Gorman of Waldameer Park said, "They help us to identify things we might miss to make sure things are safe and operational before we open."
