2021 - Whirlwind & Rally Racer - (3/29/20) Bad news for Waldameer Park this weekend. The local news reports that the park has had to put their construction projects on hold (new waterslides and a family coaster). The park has also had to layoff all of their full time staff for the time being while they wait to see what the latest government guidelines are to determine when they might be able to reopen and restaff the park, or continue the construction projects. Of course this puts the timeline for the opening of any of these new attractions also in flux.
