#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in Connecticut
Water Park · Theme Park
Originally opened as a family "picnic" park, Lake Compounce today features three roller coaster rides and more than 40 attractions. Welcoming families since 1846, it lays claim to being the oldest continuously-operating amusement park in the United States. Make sure to check out Boulder Dash, the popular wooden coaster built into the side of a mountain. Try out the slides, the wave pool, and the lazy river of Connecticut’s largest water park for no extra charge. Refresh on the go, or rent a cabana and relax on the lounge chairs. Note that the line lengths for the rides fluctuate depending on the number of campers in the area. A visit to Lake Compounce represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bristol online trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • What an amazing day! Lake Compounce has many attractions and shows to entertain all types of guests. The park was so clean and welcoming!

  • My companion was in a wheelchair but still able to ride the rides. The staff were all helpful and extremely kind towards us both. I can't say enough how far out of their way these staff members went to make us feel comfortable and included. I was surprised and appreciated this more than I can say. Big love to Lake Compounce!
