Waldameer's Massive Water Park Expansion Coming Along

It won't be long before the huge piles of dirt, partially poured concrete, and nearly completed buildings open at Waldameer as Water World's huge 2015 expansion.  Sure, it may look like a mess right now, but that's what it takes to turn a huge part of the park's former parking lot into a Summer paradise.

Above is a map of the expansion area, which will feature a giant wave pool - the largest in the tri-state area - as its focus.  The wave pool will be accompanied by a large lounging area, complete with private cabanas that will be available to rent.

Here's a look at some of that dirt I mentioned, along with the service building for the wave pool.  As you can see the floor of the wave pool was just about ready to be poured, which will really make things come together!  The park will also build a new food location, Waveside Grill, in the expanded Water World.  Amenities such as expanded changing rooms, new lockers, and all new ticket booths are also going up right now.

You may have noticed in the map up top that the park has plenty more planned for the future, as well.  A kiddie spray ground, water play structure and a thrilling new bowl slide are all planned to be added in the coming seasons as well.

The park's WaldaBlog has a great off-season look at all these construction projects, be sure to click over and read more here.
