Darien Lake & Waldameer Park Trip
I'll be visiting Darien Lake this Thursday and Waldameer Park on Sunday. I'm looking forward to re-visiting Darien Lake now that PARC Management runs the park. I've heard good things and I'm anxious to see how different it is post-Six Flags. I'll also get to ride the coasters that I missed last time as well as the new Orange County Choppers MotoCoaster.
Then on Sunday I'll be visiting Waldameer for a ride on the new Gravity Group wooden coaster, Ravine Flyer II. Hopefully, I was right in my prediction of it being the 'Sleeper Hit of 2008'. Although with the good buzz I'm hearing, it might not be much of a sleeper. I just felt like it wasn't getting a whole lot of attention when it was under construction. Expect full reviews and a trip report when I return.

Anyone have any park tips for Darien Lake or Waldameer? Any can't miss flat rides, photo ops, or highly recommended food? Leave a comment below.

    Sorry I didn't leave you any Waldameer tips … I was at Disney World and Dorney Park back-to-back. What did you think of Ravine Flyer II? Judy P in Pgh

    Ravine Flyer II was amazing! I'm still trying to figure out where and if it falls in my top 10, but it will likely just make it in. I'll probably have a full review up in the next week or so.
