This happened July 8, so it was a while ago.
I got to go to Waldameer for the first time in two years or so with my two friends Jon and Chris. It was a grand day.
We kept commenting on how Waldameer should never change--or at least older parts. I kept reminiscing on how the OLD recording for The Dodge'ems always filled me with joy--because they apparently updated the recording.
It said something at the end like, "And no head-on collisions; remember, this is the Dodge'ems--and the object is to dodge everyone!" ON A BUMPER CARS
At least the recording for the Whacky Shack is still the same as it always has been. That makes me a happy lil goblin.
There's apparently a new ride coming to the park. A whoa-belly; one of those towers that takes you up and drops you. But it isn't here. What IS here is what I can only describe as the newest-looking carni-ride EVAR. It's a stand-in for the soon-to-be ride.
And after years of its running existence in the park, I've finally had the chance to sample what the Steel Dragon has to offer. Not much.
ANYWAY, I didn't get to go on the Wipeout this time around; it's the ride I only go on with either Liza or my Dad because everyone else is too much of a wussie to handle the stomach-churning ups and downs, or the neck-breaking spin at the end.
I also didn't get to go on the Spider. I love that ride. Didn't go because I was too full.
I was also too sick from going on the Tilt-a-Whirl, or as Chris's mom has come to calling it, the "Tilt-a-Hurl". And it IS a very nausiating ride, IF you can get it to spin. If you do, damn, you feel G's, swear to the Gods.
For anyone looking for a good time, call 86--NO, haha. RIDE SUGGESTIONS!
+ Anything in the park. Because they're just that good.
If you are a visitor to Erie, you MUST go on as many rides as you can in Waldameer. Because these are the best old-time rides you'll get for miles around.
I went to Cedar Point once. They had imitations of our rides. They sucked. So if you see anything in the following pictures--that I took that day--at Cedar Point, chances are they are MUCH better here at Waldameer.
