Like movie theaters and haunted candy stores, amusement parks provide an acceptable social atmosphere in which to scream aloud with a mouth full of confections. Get a sugar rush and adrenaline fix in one outing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get an outing for one including gate admission and unlimited rides at Lakeside Amusement Park (up to a $19.75 value). Lakeside Amusement Park is open Friday–Sunday until September 25.
Exciting thrill seekers for more than 100 years, Lakeside Amusement Park's family-friendly playground spins, twirls, and swirls adrenaline junkies of every age. With gate admission and unlimited rides, visitors can dance through a host of colorful carnival attractions including bumper cars, a merry-go-round, and the Cyclone Coaster. Kiddies' Playland brims with 15 children's rides where youngsters can tumble and ricochet like bouncy balls careening down an M.C. Escher–designed staircase. Along with arcade arenas for stationary thrill seekers, the scenic park offers festival fare, picnic space, and a picturesque view of a glistening lake and rolling mountains that echo the dulcet tones of yodeler mating calls.
Lakeside Amusement Park
Established in 1908, Lakeside Amusement Park maintains its turn-of-the-century charm while embracing modern amenities and attractions. An adrenaline-pumping drop tower and a slew of neon-hued, spinning rides contrast the classic joy of a wooden roller coaster, which rises from its perch near the lake.
The all-ages park also comprises Kiddies' Playland, a place where tots can get their fun fix on boats, animal-themed rides, and pint-sized motorcycles. The facility also accommodates large groups with on-site picnic grounds perfect for birthday parties or applesauce fights.
