COVID Important Notice

UPDATE: Waldameer has updated their mask policy

In accordance to CDC and Pennsylvania Health guidelines, those who are fully vaccinated and children under 2 years old do not need to wear a mask while visiting Waldameer & Water World. Those who are not fully vaccinated must still wear a mask when visiting. Masks can be removed when eating and drinking as well as when enjoying Water World attractions. You can view Waldameer's procedures at the link below.

The greatest concern of The Great Ohio Coaster Club is the health, safety and enjoyment of its members. To ensure continued safety, GOCC is closely monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation. As a result, we ask that you respect the wishes of GOCC and the park. Please follow and respect all safety procedures instituted by Waldameer and Water World, our host for the event. This includes wearing face coverings (properly over both the mouth and nose) at all times when on park property, except when actively eating or drinking. Please do not attend if you're sick or show any symptoms of COVID-19. You can view Waldameer's safety procedures here.

When interacting with GOCC volunteers during event check-in and at other times during the day. Attendees are expected to wear a face covering (properly over both the mouth and nose) and maintain physical distancing to the greatest extent that circumstances allow. The volunteers will be wearing face coverings as well. We realize that many of you attending may be seeing some of your GOCC friends for the first time in quite a while.

We know that you'll be happy to see one another, but given health concerns, suggest that you follow common protocols for health safety. Everyone has different comfort levels in terms of being in close proximity to others. Please be respectful of other members and allow a six-foot distance between one another, unless it's made clear by all involved that closer proximity is welcomed.
