My son and I purchased season passes for Lake Compounce for the first time this summer and I thought I'd offer some observations if you're trying to decided between here and Six Flags for season passes. 1. Cost. Lake Compounce passes cost more than Six Flags. There are, however several advantages. First, the season parking is less expensive than Six... More

I always look forward to the Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce.. It's a great start for the fall season, they have great rides and the atmosphere is perfect. If you are every in Bristol CT give it try you'll be satisfied. Oh and they give you free soda all day long..

I have had a season pass here for the past two years. This is a perfect family summer day place to stay. There are rides for all ages, and a large water park as well. The park is laid out perfectly, as a family with little children, the kid area is separate from all the "big kid" rides. We just... More

The Park was great with nostalgic feel and yet some modern twists. Great water park as well with many different types of areas, wave pool and different slides and beach front area and little kiddie area too. The rides were pretty good although when we went in July some of the rides were closed and the kids were a little... More

A group of 8 of us (4 adults and 4 12 year-olds) went to the Lake Compounce last night (Friday). I got combo (rides and graveyard) tickets at AAA ($5 savings for adult and $2.00 for kids) a head of time and we arrived at 6:30. We couldn't get over how light the crowds were and the kids had a...

I'm keeping this review short and simple. First time at this attraction and I enjoyed it. The whole thing is a walk through which takes about 40 minutes. If you can't handle being scared, walk in the middle of the group so you're not the first to encounter the actors. Some parts really scary and other parts comical. It's a... More

Lake Compounce has featured a haunted graveyard for years. This year's is--by far--the best. It is a 45 minute walk through a church, graveyard, tropical forest, house, and many other scenes. There are countless actors who do an amazing job. There are disorienting tunnels and bridges (strobe lights are used to enhance). It is probably too intense for small children.... More

This theme park is the best value in the Northeast. Lots of rides and GREAT food if catered. Next to ESPN headquarters and easy access off RT 84 major throughway.
