The Erie, Pennsylvania park is the fourth oldest amusement park in the state and the tenth oldest in the United States. It began as Hoffman's Grove, a picnic ground, but the Erie Electric Car company leased the park, changed the name to Waldameer Park and made it the terminus to one of its trolley routes.
The amusement park has 32 rides, video games, midway games and a live music stage as of 2014. Water World has a wave pool, 16 slides and an endless river ride. Weather conditions sometimes close the water park.
True to its origin, Waldameer Park continues to offer picnicking, but food is also available at the park. The park is open seasonally, so visitors should check its website or call to confirm it is open.
