Ravine Flyer II

For the most part a steel coaster is my ride of choice. I was at Waldameer to ride the Steel Dragon Spinning Coaster and while I was there I got the chance to ride the Ravine Flyer II. This coaster was engineered by “The Gravity Group” and is the Golden Ticket award winner for best new ride in 2008. I found this POV video on YouTube:

Waldameer is located in Erie PA and the Ravine Flyer II is it major attraction along with the Steel Dragon and Mega Vortex. Check out all the rides at Waldameer. Let’s Ride!

Ride is never the same… Twice!

Maurer Söhne says that you will never get the same ride twice with the SC2000 spinning coaster. So I thought I would put that to the test with the Steel Dragon at Waldameer Amusement Park and Water World.


Waldameer is a small park located in Erie PA and they offer free admission with individual ride tickets or ride as much as you like. We decided to do the evening $15.00 ride all you want and entered the park after 7:00 PM. First stop was the Steel Dragon and what a blast this little coaster is. A new “spin” on the traditional mouse type coaster. Each ride is very unique and will spin you at different ways. Each car can handle up to 4 persons. We rode with a full car and then with only 2 in the front seats and I got to tell you we got more spins with only 2 people riding. Also at the park the Ravine Flyer II, the 2008 Golden Ticket Award for best new ride and New for 2009 the Mega Vortex. If ya have time get to Erie PA and check out the Steel Dragon spinning coaster at Waldameer!

ALSO more to come on the Ravine Flyer II… I know I am a steely dan kinda of guy but this WOODIE was very nice! Let’s Ride!

Steel Dragon @ Waldameer Park

Ok, so this is not about the Jumbo Jet or even the lost coaster, however every coaster could become a lost coaster. This is a great coaster called the Steel Dragon at Waldameer Park and it could be someone’s first ride. The ride that gets them hooked on roller coasters and thrill rides, then one day 35 years later they wonder “Hey what happened to the Steel Dragon”? Just like I thought about my first coaster ride on the Jumbo Jet at CP back in 1974… the lost coaster. Let’s Ride!
