Waldameer Hard at Work on 2nd Phase of Water World Expansion

Even after a large expansion in 2015 that saw the addition of an expansive wave pool, Waldameer isn't resting on its laurels in 2016.  The park will expand Water World once again next year - this time adding more attractions for kids and their families.  The changes will help build overall capacity and compliment the already popular children's section of Water World.

2016's changes are part of a previously announced, multi-year growth project for Water World - the coming phase will cost a cool $1.5 million to complete.  This graphic was released back when the plan was first announced, and shows the area of focus next year.  The children's slides will share a pool that will have 30+ spray and interactive water features that will keep kids busy for hours.  An additional amenity will also be added to the water park next year, in the form of rentable cabanas adjacent to the wave pool.

Even with so many changes underway there is still more to come - the original Water World expansion plans also included a water fun house structure near the kiddie slides, and a large bowl-style water slide coming off of one of the existing towers.
