we wanted to visit this park because we saw it highlighted in a PBS special of great old amusement parks. my family has visited many parks in PA. this was fine. Positive- I can say it's a nicely landscaped park and the minature golf was fun. I have a 5 yr old that enjoyed that and the go carts very much. he loved riding leap the dips. it can get expensive becuase its $2.50 each time you ride.they had some rides we don't have locally. we went on a $5 day and it was a good price but everything is extra(the go carts, leap the dips, golf). they have a nice train and the food seemed ok but there isn't much of a selection.
most of the rides are carnival rides that didn't really seem like they were maintained that well. the 2 coasters look very old and all the paint is falling off. it made them appear really old and poorly cared for.
what I hated most and until it's changed we will never go back.---I live very close to idewild and kennywood and we also visit hershey yearly. all of these parks have smoking in desgnitated areas ONLY. At lakemont you are allowed to walk around and smoke and there are cigarrette butts every all over the ground and people were smoking all over the place I am sitting on a bench waiting and someone sits down and smokes you are in line and someone is smoking. I am terribly bothered by smoke and hated this enough that it will keep me from every returning. I believe there were signs that said you could not smoke in kiddieland but we were there for 7 hrs and I NEVER saw any type of security at all. for a park that is supposed to be "family friendly" I wasn't very happy with this at all. we won't be back until these policies are changed.
