One of Colorado’s oldest theme parks, Lakeside Amusement Park opened in 1908. It’s been operating on Sheridan Boulevard ever since.
The park is only a few dollars to get into, and then either paid per ride or a pass for unlimited rides. Rides include a roller coaster, trains, a merry-go-round, a drop tower, bumper cars, and many spinning rides. Parking is always free and you’re welcome to bring your picnic.
One of the highlights of the park is the “Cyclone” built in 1940. It’s a wooden roller coaster that overlook the Colorado Front Range.
