A good renovation of the place was in order when we visited about 8 years ago. Not too bad of a place in comparison to Albuquerque or El Paso amusement parks. Ride selections were not the caliber of a Six Flags or Disney, but were...More

I instantly recognized the experienced parkgoers: they had packed parties with cooler after cooler of ethnic cuisine and drink. They picked shady spots.

This is a park that has a special place in my heart. I only wish it was a little better kept (-1 point for run down nature). The price is very affordable especially with coupons. The rides really need to be fixed and updated but...More

If you live a good old fashioned amusement park you will live Lakeside. Rides for the whole family. Old school roller coaster. Ring toss and other great carnival games. Fantastic carousel. It should be in the historic register. I love it. Can't wait to go...More

The history of Lakeside is worth checking out on Wikipedia if you're thinking about going. It's the oldest amusement park in CO and definitely has the classic theme park feel complete with elephant ears, cotton candy and snow cones. You buy tickets (no bracelets here!)...More
