Lake Compounce is the oldest, continuously-operating amusement park in North America, having its genesis more than 165 years ago in 1846!
The park has had more than $40 million invested in rides and attractions during the recent past, and today is more beautiful than ever.
Among other famous attractions, Lake Compounce is home to Boulder Dash, the roller coaster built entirely on a mountainside, which has been voted the world’s #1 wooden roller coaster, as well as Connecticut’s largest water park.
At “The Lake,” there are more rides, attractions, and FUN than anyone can experience in just one day...whether you’re young or just young at heart.
