Lakeside can get a bad rap, particularly by those that have never tried it ... It is great for young children and you have none of the insane crowds or parking nightmares that another local amusement park has (Elitches). The rides for young kids are appropriate and the kids love them. The food is amusement park fair ... I mean... More

First of all to all the naysayers, I say boo to you! This place is great. Sure, it's not as fancy as Elitches, but it's half the price and parking is included. You get a whole day of family fun without breaking the bank. The rides are not falling apart as some other reviews might say (each ride has to... More

As far as amusement parks go this one is ok. It's a lovely bit of history with some (frighteningly) old rides. Personally, I'm not a fan of wooden rollercoasters, but if your are there's a nice one here. Not that many rides, but nice for a day out with smaller kids (7-15). Older teenagers will probably get bored quite soon.

This old historical place should be so nice to go to but its not... ever! the people who work there do not care, and there are always little gangster kids... or wannabe gangster kids cutting in line and talking filthy in front of you and your family that are trying to have a decent family time together..

We went on a Sunday with family. I was skeptical at first since it looked run down, but, we had such a great time. The kids loved it! The lines were short so we were able to get on any rides we wanted and multiple times. I highly suggest the train ride around the lake.

Lakeside is an amusement park that has over 100 years of existence in Denver, Colorado. The art deco style of many of the buildings and rides makes it a work of art. The rides have always run consistently on all my visits to this place. There is a good selection of rides, most of them the "classic" rides that date... More

Lakeside Amusement Park is a slice of cultural history. In that respect, it's worth reading about. But is it an attraction worth a visit? That's a tougher question. Arguably, its long decay and current relegation to its current status, may not merit a visit. If you're with a group more interested in heritage – it's perhaps a stellar living museum.... More

My daughter is 5 and can ride all of the Kiddleland rides and most the bigger rides (some with an adult) and she loved it. It wasn't too crowded and was mostly families with young children. Lakeside is old and definitely a nostalgia trip. This is not a state-of-the art amusement park but it was a very affordable day for... More

Wife and daughter stuck on Ferris wheel for ten minuets. I had to ask the operator to let them... More

Lakeside captures the old school, carnival style amusement park very well. Creaky and jerky rides abound with the smell of grease, smoke and scones. Lots of fun to be had-if you can get over the fact that nothing has changed in 20+ years. It could use a facelift for sure. Paint, ride repairs, cleanliness and an overall update to the... More
