Waldameer has free entry if you just want to walk around the park. The rides are fun and the tall rides have great views of the Peninsula/Presque Isle Park.

I believe you are able to get them online and if not it gives you the information on how to get them. I purchased season passes for my daughters family and saw info for group ticket sales.

If I buy my tickets online do I just print them out or do I have to wait for them to come in the mail.
