General Info:
Lakeside Amusement Park is a large facility with excitement, history and charm. Located in Denver, Colorado, at I-70 and Sheridan, on a picturesque lake (with great mountain views), trains, a merry-go-round, a drop tower, bumper cars, and many spinning rides, Lakeside is the perfect site for family fun and large events. Kiddies' Playland is filled with rides specifically for young children. Lakeside Amusement Park doesn’t have a set closing time, but the small rides in Kiddies’ Playland generally close around 10 pm, with the rest of the park closing between 10 and 11 pm. However the admission gates might close several hours before this. Always call 303-477-1621 to check the weather and that the admission gates are still open, when you are planning on coming to Lakeside Amusement Park.

I LOVE IT HERE!!! anyone who says this place sucks, sucks. this is cool and fun and cheap and it's been around for a hundred years, which is more than dumb old elitches from the nineties can say. i go every summer. it's not unsafe or dirty, and won't make you barf, because a lot of the rides are gentle. but they have plenty of thrill rides too, if you're a crazy person who loves to have bathroom accidents. come to this wonderful denver attraction. it's well worth it.

Slow death

I have been going to Lakeside most of my life and the place itself is awesome. It is like stepping into the past.. full of history and great times that have been had there. There is so much personality and charm attached to the place, everyone should visit at least once to understand this. My complaint about it is the fact that the people in charge of it dont seem to realize this. It doesnt seem like anyone takes any kind of pride in keeping it cleaned up and safe. They are letting it die a slow death. Half of the rides dont work, most of the games are out of order and they have some of the rudest employees I have encountered in a long time. The ones that arent necessarily rude, dont care. It is obvious they are there to collect a pay check and have no regard for customer service. The park itself would be truly unbelievable if someone took the time to restore it, clean it up and keep it in shape. How sad it is that we live in a time where places like this go so unappreciated. Its not the park that deserves the bad rap it is getting, its the owners

Nostalgic

This place is a bit old and run down, but it's cheap compared to Six Flags. And who doesn't love an old wooden roller coaster every now and then?

Value, History, Diversity !

This place has great rides and is a real ""amusement park"" - not some ""theme"" park that's primary purpose is to extract green-backs from your pocket. What is sad about this park is that when I read other reviews talking about it being ""dirty"" or old- what you really see is that its not just plastic and steel themes. Underlying this is that a multi-ethnic mix or people go to this park. Here, my 5 year old blonde/blue son rides with all ethnicities and all economic backgrounds. When we go to Elitches its suburban white families, standing in line for endless hours.

So back to the place- whether its the great steel ferris wheel (which my son says ""we can see the whole world"" - not quite ;-) ) or the authentic steam locomotive, 2 fantastic coaster (yes- the Wild Chipmunk is worth its name!) or variations on traditional carnival rides, the underlying theme is fun at the park.

Catch this park before it becomes history- undoubtedly it will.

Great family value

Yes, Lakeside is old, but that is what makes it Lakeside, the entire park is living history today. The rides are older, not the highest, nor fastest, but you can go to this park with the entire family and not take out a second mortgage on the house. And if you have any interest in american amusement park history---WOW, you can spend an entire day just looking at it all.

Very Old

If you want to ride the rides that made grandma scream this is the place. Since most of the the original rides are still here the main reason you will scream is out of fear it will fall down while you are on it. It is too bad because it could be a fun place if someone spent a little money on it. The prices are cheap but that does not mean it's a value.

Great old fashioned amusement park!

Lakeside is one of the best amusement parks I have ever been too! It may not be Disneyland, but it has everything you could want from a classic park. Lakeside has all the classic rides and a WONDERFUL wooden rollercoaster. Other attractions are good for younger kids too. Add in the venue (the don't call it Lakeside for nothing!), the shady walkways and the low admission price and you can't beat this park!
