Congratulations to Lake Compounce for being named 1 of the 10 Very Best Small Amusement Parks in America by The Huffington Post! A local favorite that not only attracts Bristol residents but also families from around the world, Lake Compounce is a family theme park like no other. Check out what The Huffington Post has to say about Lake Compounce below:
“For the U.S., 1846 was a pretty big year. James K. Polk was president, the Thornton Affair kicked off the Mexican-American War, and Lake Compounce opened in the heart of New England. Now, 170 years later, the nation’ oldest continuously operating amusement park is consistently ranked among the best in the land, thanks in large part to a total overhaul in the 1990s. Thrill-seekers young and old can enjoy 44 different rides, including Boulder Dash, a top-ranked wooden roller coaster, and the newest addition: Phobia, a 15-story, 65mph coaster guaranteed to elicit a scream or two. Family prices are reasonable, especially the season pass, and seniors 60-plus cost just $20.49.
Bonus tip: There are hydration stations located throughout the park, where guests can grab a cold drink for free.”
