Waldameer Adding Wave Pool

Waldameer will be getting even wetter and wilder.

The park will be expanding again, and will soon have the biggest wave pool in the tri-state area, with a capacity for about 1,000 people.

Park owner Paul Nelson says the $10 million expansion will also include a food concession building, a new restroom facility, more tickets booths to ease the backlog on busy weekends, new lockers for the water park, and more than 1,000 new lounge chairs for the wave pool and eating areas.

Nelson said he hopes construction of the wave pool will start the day after Labor Day and that it would be ready for swimmers in May or early June – depending on what winter’s like.
