We were new to the area four years ago and were enticed by the beautiful display of holiday lights, as we could see them while traveling on I-99-N. We have experienced the lights many times since. We buy the unlimited pass so we can take it all in multiple times, and bring others along to enjoy it with us! Our children and grandchildren were able to see it this year. Children of all ages will be thrilled and full of wide-eyed wonder as they experience the beauty of Holiday Lights on the Lake! And don't forget to visit the gift shop where you'll find various holiday treasures, snacks, and an impressive model train display. Just a warning, the popularity of this entire attraction means you'll likely have a wait, but it's worth the wait!

Lakemont is a shell of what it used to be. The very few rides are old, and worn down...
Go to Delgrosso's in Tipton instead of here.

Park has quite many small rides for children. Food vendors very good. Arcade well kept and clean. Staff very nice and helpful. They have a few "bigger" rides that adults can have fun on as well. Park looked very clean , restrooms clean. Think we only paid like 5 dollars a person to get in.

Let me start this off... This is a great park... However first thing you do head for the Skyliner... Which in my opinion (and my opinion is always right) the best coaster in the world... It has a lot of ejector air (airtime where you are lifted out your seat) great fun... On the total flipside their other woodie Leap the Dips is the oldest operating coaster in the world and lacks any airtime at all... Then they have this curious ride called the Skydiver... This is best described as the ferris wheel from hell! You are locked into a car with a steering wheel which you can use to flip the cars again fun! Lakemont is definitely worth a visit.

My husband and I took our son there this past week-end. It is an old park but still fun. It is very clean and the staff was friendly. Very family oriented. not a big place and older children(tweens and teen agers) probably would not enjoy it too much. Over all, just a nice place for a day of fun.
