Lake Compounce to Debut Massive Transformation for 175th Birthday


America’s Oldest Amusement Park celebrates its 175th birthday and is getting the party started even earlier by moving up Opening Day three weeks to Saturday, May 8. The celebration starts with a complete rebranding, including a new logo, a park-wide visual transformation, an all-new waterslide, Venus Vortex, and Bites & Pints, a new food and beverage festival during the month of June. Visitors can expect immersion from the second they click onto our website or turn into the Lake Compounce parking lot!


After parking and entering through the iconic tunnel, guests will take in the beautiful Main Gate area and marvel at the reimagined Main Street, complete with twinkling lights and a magical ambiance. Throughout the park, fresh colors, new seating and shade, and new landscaping create an eye-catching environment fitting for an institution 175 years young.
