Waldameer 2009: Disk'O

Waldameer Amusement Park has announced a new attraction for the park's 2009 season, and is already talking about plans for 2010.

The park will add a Mega Disk'O flat ride from Zamperla next season. The Ravine Flyer II wooden coaster, which opened this past summer, was a smash success for the park. The park estimates that business was up some 20% this year due to the new coaster.

If this trend continues, the park already plans to add a Flying Carousel ride for 2010. I think it's fantastic to hear of a local, independent park doing so well!

...especially in this soft economy for tourism!

Remember Cedar Fair said it was looking forward to this year because they felt more locals would stay closer to home. Why would this economy hurt parks?
