Waldameer is the fourth oldest amusement park in Pennsylvania, the tenth oldest in the nation, and one of only thirteen trolley parks still operating in the United States.

A gift shop is located in the park selling Waldameer souvenirs. The water park operates an assortment of water slides and raft rides and is admission by fee only. The name “Waldameer” can be translated literally as “Woods by the Sea” in German. Waldameer’s operating season runs from May through September.
