I did enjoy going to this place as it was so old and full of cool things to look at. We rode one ride and thought we were going to need a wheelchair we were so banged up for the roller coaster. Dang, we hurt!...More

We went on a Sunday night, thought this would be a perfect way to end our summer. For a $100 for a family of four, this was super expensive. Especially since some rides were broken down, there is trash all over the place, weeds, muddy...More

This is a very historic park but it is really falling apart and neglected. I don't see how this place can sustain itself for many more years at this rate of neglect. There are rides that have been partially disassembled with just the skeletal remnants...More

Friendly place that is a bit run down but the people running the rides were friendly and helpful. Something rare when it comes to amusement park employees. The rides are getting old and in need of repair. All in all it was cheap entertainment.

Once a year, we use our coupons our grand daughters have earned at school or through the library reading program to come and ride the rides all day long. Love the classic feel of Lakeside Amusement Park.

This is awesome place! Very run down but a fun place to take the kiddos. Bathrooms are horrible. I wish someone would sink a little money in it to make it cool again! Love all the old rides! The girl who does the Matterhorn ride...More

Sure, it may be a little worn, even a tad on the shabby side, but where else in the world will you find a park initially constructed during the turn of the century golden age of trolley parks, generously updated during the 1930s Art Deco...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
