This is a gem. The last white city amusement park. It is historical and the perfect combination of run down and functional. Would love to have come here at night and seen it lit up. Like walking through a slice of history. Great for anyone...More

We thought we would try it... liked the eclectic idea and hoped for shorter lines. Run down and obvious they are putting nothing into it... it is not old times feeling...it is rundown. Some of the rides listed are not even in operation. Disappointed and...More

I just visit Lakeside for the first time, and I am in love. This park is one of the oldest amusement parks left standing, and has an amazing collection of rare rides. The Cyclone is super fun, and the view while you ride it is...More

As a child, I used to love this place. It's so run down, dirty, needs paint and a lot TLC. Many rides looked unsafe or weren't working at all. It's affordable for the kids, but you get what you pay for.

This lovely old-school amusement park will transport you back to the 90s with the old-school rides. Prices are great/affordable, nice to go when the Sun goes down. Great for couples, singles, families!

I always liked Lakeside since it was cheaper than Elitches and is easier to get too than Six Flags. Rocky Mountain park is right across the street for some picnic fun

This place is not as big as Denver's main amusement park but it retains lots of character. Take the kids on the little train that circles the lake.

This place is almost an anachronism. It still looks pretty much the way I remember it looking way back in the 1970's, and they still have one of the last "wooden" roller coasters on its original site in the entire United States. Traveling to this...More

Well, yes, they do have restrictions on taking pictures. If you are taking "family" shots, that's okay. But, if you are taking pictures of the park, the architecture, or anything but other people, they do not allow it... More
