Ravine Flyer was a wooden roller coaster at Waldameer in Erie, Pennsylvania, USA. It was the largest coaster at the park in its time. In the 1930s during the depression, the ride was torn down.


A 19-year-old man jumped to his death from the ride after it stalled on August 8, 1938. He fell 18 feet onto the pavement.[1]
