Theme Park
“Lakeside is an historic amusement park that will make a little bit of $$ go a long way. It’s truly an old-school theme park with rides suitable for all ages (even toddlers). A great alternative to Six Flags for those looking to spend less money, wait in shorter lines, and are up for a little character and charm (and a little nail biting on the older wooden coasters!). Take the little train ride around the lake after dark to get a great view of the park all lit up! ”
