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

We get there and half the rides were closed, Mostly teenagers running the rides, no one smiled or was friendly, Ferris wheel kept stopping every few minuets to let new passengers on and did not go around completely but kept stopping. 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

We were there this past Friday, the kids loved it. There were no/small lines, the staff was nice and friendly. We took the train ride around the lake and the view was amazing.

Lakeside cannot be compared with Elitches or Six Flags or Worlds of Fun. Lakeside, rather, is a bit like a ghost town of an amusement park where a few signs of its former glory days still remain. Usually you can get into Lakeside for free or a few bucks. It's a delight to walk around and explore the still working... More

Unless it's free entry don't waste your time. They have the rudest people working there. The food, they don't have everything that they say they have to offer. They say they open at 6:00pm but the employees start to warm up the rides at that time so they end up running the ride 1/2 hour later. Sad to see one... More
