One of Colorado’s oldest theme parks, Lakeside Amusement Park opened in 1908. It’s been operating on Denver’s Sheridan Boulevard ever since, welcome guests every summer!
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.
Historic Theme Park on Lake Rhoda
One of the highlights of the park is the “Cyclone” built in 1940. It’s a wooden roller coaster that overlooks the Colorado Front Range. There is a lot of charm at Lakeside Amusement Park.
Head over between Memorial Day and Labor Day for an amusement evening in the Mile High City. Since the park entry is low, and you pay per ride, make the most of this historic landmark.
