Lake Compounce Theme Park 

1. RISK YOUR LIFE AT THE COUNTRY'S OLDEST AMUSEMENT PARK

LAKE COMPOUNCE THEME PARK | 186 Enterprise Dr, Bristol, CT | 860.583.3300

Connecticut is known for two things. One of them, we forget. The other is Lake Compounce, North America's oldest continuously operating theme park. That doesn't really sound like a desirable designation for a place whose sole mission is to strap you into a little cart and fling you millions of miles (hyperbole, relax) into the air. Don't worry, just because the park opened in 1846 doesn't mean the rides are ancient death traps. They've invested $40 million into the joint to keep it safe and fun. Oh! We just remembered the other thing! Meg Ryan. Yeah, Meg Ryan will be there when you go, too.
