  • Lakemont is best known for Leap the Dips, which is the world's oldest operating roller coaster. It is unusual as it is a side friction coaster, which was common in the early 1900's. This is the only r...  more »
  • This park is good for a family with young kids and it's nice for a cheap activity but when I was younger it was so much nicer than it is now. Some of the rides need some work, like the Skyliner. Howev...  more »
