My family and I love Lake Compounce. My kids got season passes here for the summer for a Christmas gift and were thrilled. I like it because of the size. It is not overwhelming. You can walk from one end to the other multiple times a day because it is not huge. Free soda keeps everyone hydrated with out breaking the bank, or me having to lug everyone's water bottle. They frequently add extra cars to rides to keep the lines moving. I don't care so much for the chaos of the water park, because there are too many kids to try to keep track of your own.

This is a sized-right park. Just enough to do in a day, but not become so exhausted that you can't drive home. Great water park, big enough for the kids, but you can still keep an eye on them.

As old as I am I still like water slides. And the great thing is my kids do too. Just enough slides to keep them running in circles. Big enough to see it all before the day ends, small enough to make it through the day. An affordable fun day, plan on a weekday during the summer, it's not so busy.

Lake Compounce is a small amusement and water park that is loads of fun. The water rides are my favorite, especially the river rapids. They have had some problems in the last couple of years and hopefully the staff is more highly trained and attentive than they used to be.

this is one of the best amusement parks i've been too. It's fun for all ages. There are many places to eat swim and plenty of rides to have fun for hours and hours on end. With water rides and dry rides and the Boulder Dash is the best wooden roller coaster.

My family and I always purchase season passes ever summer. We load up the kids and head to Compounce. That is our summer...it is very clean. The kids love the rides and I enjoy the landscape, the flowers are beautiful. It would be summer without going to the Lake.

We have been to Lake Compounce too many times to count. The season passes are well worth it. A good variety of rides for little ones through adults. There is a new ride every year. The water park area is great, but is usually very crowded- our trick is to go after 3pm when the crowds in the water areas thin out.

We went to Lake Coumpounce this year for the first time, with my daughter's gymnastics group as a part of a field trip. We had a fabulous time. The water park is great for all ages. We have two children age 6 anf 15 months. They both had a wonderful time. There were rides for both ages. My yougest had a great time in the water park especially in the swing. We are seriously considering seasons passes for next summer. It is a great day get away for family fun.

We have had season passes for the past 2 years and have used them often. We live close to the park, so we can go for a few hours or the whole day. They have rides,water park, shows and games. My kids love the water park. It is very crowded on the weekend, so we try to go later in the day when it is not so crowded. You can use your pass from May to October which is great.

We love the park. We bought season tickets for the family and went numerous times. We avoided the crowed days which makes it so much better. Seeing that we bought the passes we could just go for a couple of hours sometimes near closing time and hardly anyone was there.

This park is great for older kids. I just find it expensive especially is a family is going to go. I don't see why if you are going to not ride on the rides that you have to pay the admission price also. Grandma and grandpa might want to see their grandkids on the rides, but aren't going to ride. Not good customer service with that one!

I ran a field trip for 400 high school age students for several years. This facility accomodated the students, some of which had special needs. The trip was easy to arrange, the tickets came in advance, and I could return any unused tickets on the day of the trip. It was a great experience.

Lake Compounce amusement park is located near where I live, and I have been going there since I was a little kid. Aside from the novelty of it, the rides included are not anything too spectacular. They obviously have a low budget, but make do with what they have. The roller coasters are not nearly as thrilling as six flags or disney, but they do have a nice wooden coaster and I really enjoy the ski lift "ride". The price is good in relation to other amusement parks, but you also get less for your money. They should have more concerts there like they did in the old days.

PROS: Close, cheap
CONS: Boring

Lake Compounce isa great New England Amusement Park. The day we went was the hottest day of the year! Thank goodness forthe extremely splashy Raft ride where we cooled off and the newly opened Splash Harbor water park where we could also cool off!

This park is nicely arranged and has allof the fun rides you expect from an amusement park. The food was good and reasonably priced. I wouldn't recomend the fried oreo cookies however!

Be sure to check out theirwebsite before you go... they have listings of height requirements; what rides operate in high winds and storms and what rides are handicapped accessible.

If you visited Lake Compounce during the late 80's and early 90's it was alittle dull unless you were seeing a concert. But they have added alot of great features and food.

The nation's oldest amusement park had a renovation in the late 90's to add new enticements to the park--Clipper Cove, Whac-A-Mole and Fried Oreos. Atleast two dozen new rides and attractions were added including the steel roller coaster; a Sky Ride that takes visitors to the top of Compounce Mountain, a flume ride; and a roller coaster built into a mountainside. Clipper Cove is a tall ship-themed addition to the water park. It has climbing ropes and nets, multi-level platforms, tipping cones and three waterslides. Splash Harbor also has a lighthouse, a Pirate Ship, and a wave pool.

The best part is the new food. Fried Oreos have been added to the menu - YUM! The pizza place was expanded, and they added a taco place with great taco salads.

Lake Compounce introduced free unlimited soda at soda stations, which I love since it always bugs me to pay for drinks all day long. There's a Whac-A-Mole, but the Skee-Ball lanes are gone. Games for the little kids give token prizes, whether they win or not, which I think is very nice and saves alot of those "crying kid" problems seen sometimes at places like this. Lake Compounce is also known for its classic family amusements, its wooden roller coaster, an antique carousel, a giant ferris wheel, and vintage trolley.

PROS: FRIED Oreos and free soda
CONS: No more Skee ball

You won't find Disneyworld type rides here, but you will find a lot of rollercoasters and rides for enthusiasts alike.

Formerly owned by Hershey, this is CT's oldest theme park and the oldest running theme park in the country. They really do a good job around Halloween when they decorate the park into a haunted attraction including a haunted house and haunted rides.

The park is extremely busy during the summertime, so expect long line wait times. Parking is impressive and generally shouldn't be a problem. Parking is not included in the price of admission.

Park hours are very decent and the variety of rides is very good.

We get season passes to the amusement park every year for one reason and that is it's affordable family fun. There's something for even my youngest (who is now 3) to do. The season passes are under $60 a person and that gets you in for the entire season from May to September. It pays for itself in two trips that's all. The kids always have a blast. You get unlimited free soda all day long. And if you get tired just head over to the lake and relax on the beach. It's a must go for anyone who's going to be in the area.

Lake Compounce is truly a family friendly place. The prices are very reasonable, there are no terrible lines and everyone who works there is pleasant. It's refreshing vs. the huge theme parks across the country! Unlike the other posters, I did not take advantage of free Pepsi. It's a really pretty park and is centrally located. The maze is a lot of fun in the fall.

We recently went to Lake Compounce for our family vacation, after seeing it in the Family Fun Magazine. I am so glad we went. There was stuff for my husband and I to do as well as our 5 year old & 9 month old! THe lines are so short and you can't beat the scenery surrounding the Lake. And all the free Pepsi you want!

We have decided that Lake Compounce will be an annual vacation spot for us!

I LOOK FORWARD TO GOING HERE WITH MY KIDS EVERY YEAR. ADMISSION IS A LITTLE EXPENSIVE (USE AAA DISCOUNT IF YOU ARE A MEMBER) BUT YOU DRINK FREE PEPSI PRODUCTS ALL DAY. THERE ARE MANY RIDES FOR ALL AGES. GREAT SELECTION OF RIDES FOR SMALLER CHILDREN. LARGE WAVE POOL & SEVERAL WATER RIDES. LOCKERS AVAILABLE FOR SMALL RENTAL FEE. GREAT FOOD INCLUDING FUNNEL CAKE, FRIED OREOS, PIZZA & BURGERS AND THE BEST FRIES I HAVE EVER EATEN! MOST LINES MOVE QUICKLY.

We recently visited Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Bristol, CT. There is something there for every age group! We went with a group of adults and paid $32 per person. There is a kiddieland there with lots of rides for the little ones. Our favorite ride was the boulder-dash, a rollercoaster built into the mountain side. I would recommend this park.

Lake Compounce is a great family fun park. There are ride, midway style games, attractions and shows not to mention a water park. If you can do it get the seasons pass:for the price of two admissions you can get a season pass (and then buy the parking book and you save 1/2 price on 10 parking admissions). Lake Compounce is local, clean, and the lines tend to be smaller. If you have small children Lake Compounce is going to be far easier to please
