Ravine Flyer II is a hybrid wooden roller coaster located at Waldameer Park in Erie, Pennsylvania, manufactured by the Gravity Group. Ravine Flyer II is a favorite among coaster enthusiasts here at Waldameer Park!

This wooden roller coaster took the place of the park's old Ravine Flyer that was removed in 1938 after a tragedy resulting in a man's death. Ravine Flyer II emulates the course of the original Ravine Flyer.

 
 
 

The ride review...

While Ravine Flyer II is a favorite among coaster enthusiasts all over the world, I honestly didn't think it was all it was cracked up to be. I still hear very good things about the Ravine Flyer II and while it is a good wooden roller coaster, I have been on many that are better than this particular one here at Waldameer Park.
