I am quickly falling in love with this little park. In some ways they remind me of HW about ten years ago. They persisted for over a decade to finally get RF2, and aren't resting, instead they're keeping the fun coming for patrons. Disko's are great rides...always fun to ride! And then a "flying carousel", not sure what that is completely, but it sounds fun.

But they continue to build and expand, and I respect they're attitude with why they are doing it. The landscaping has always been great, and they seem to be fully committed to keeping it that way. Plus, they aren't forgetting the smaller things that seem to be forgotten sometimes like concessions and food.

I'll say it again...I love Waldameer!

^From the other thread, Dave clarified that the name "Wave Swinger" is a Zierer trademark. Zamperla couldn't use that name, so they decided to go with "Flying Carousel" - somewhat confusing name, but they had to call it something (and Yo-Yo was apparently taken by Chance).

This park just gets better and better. I've said it before and I'll say it again: They're one used Vekoma shuttle shy of the perfect park.

^There's a used Vekoma shuttle available, only a few hundred miles away in Maryland... :~P
