Lake Compounce, Bristol

#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in Connecticut
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! The employees were all incredibly enthusiastic and shared their positive energy with the guests. The rides were highly maintained and cared for. You can tell the staff truly takes pride in the park and what they do. I already can't wait to return to Lake Compounce. I highly recommend!
  • 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!
