No big shiny rides. And most of them are older than the average adult patron. But a relaxed, old fashioned vibe. And perfect for younger kids. Ethnically and economically diverse to boot.

Ever wonder what your grandparents did for fun? Visit Lakeside Amusement Park and find out! Ride the coolest wooden roller coaster (with manual brakes), the super cool merry go round, and the train. Almost every ride spins, so don't eat much until you have finished the fun. Then you can eat popcorn and all kinds of goodies while playing games.... More

I love this amusement park! It has an old charm to it. I just wish money would be invested in it as many of the old rides are inoperable.

I love this place, at night when all the lights go on you feel like a kid again. It is such a cheap place to go, food is so reasonable. There are pavilions, first come, first serve...with the exception of the largest one which is for companies to rent out. You can bring in your own coolers for your own... More

If you love old rickity wooden roller coasters, this is the place for you. This is one of the originals in the original locations and it's always a good time.

My friends and I went on an annual celebration to the amusement park, and it was my first time. The park is old, but it's got charm and style. The age adds to the fear on each ride and kind of encourages one to spend more time in the arcades. I mean, the creaking on the Cyclone is scarier than... More

All kids like Elitches, but my teenagers have always loved Lakeside better. They get started in the yr by the DPS night in June and then they continue at least monthly, college students now, for the rest of the season. They've been doing this for 10 yrs or so! They Emmy the fact that it's cheaper, less crowded and they... More

Great place for young, growing children. Tickets are only .50 but if you can wait till labor day .10... (by um cheap n save for the next time) rides are ok, not prefect shape but kids don't care. Food isn't worth the price but you can take your own.

Lakeside is an unbelievably charming step back in time! Bear in mind it's not a modern high-tech theme park, and therein lies what's so special about it. Having visited nearly every amusement/theme park in the country, I can attest that Lakeside is one of the finest traditional parks out there. The buildings and rides may be old (and that's what...
