I think Lakemont is finally taking steps in the right direction-the "pay as you go" would work here because Skyliner,LTD,and the miniature train are the best rides.And with all that "new" green space available,how about some trees and an antique carousel with band organ?

Donkeys are my way of life!

Lakemont IS opening this year it seems. Article goes into sone detail about what’s been done and what to expect. I’d have been happy if a few flats stuck around but an overall pleased with what they kept and some of the new stuff looks nice! Pricing seems steep to some folks because of how cheap it was before. I think it’s fair. Just they have direct competition with Delgrossos. $5 more with coupons gets you a lot more. Will be interested to see how this plays out and plan to visit this summer!

The park was comically underpriced before, so I'm not surprised they raised prices.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland), Phoenix, Boulder Dash
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Schwur des Karnan

Hey, hey, hey, this might be a step in the right direction for this park. Upon seeing the price list and what's contained inside this park I'm delighted they still kept the train ride (what else can I say except that I like train rides?). They also kept the paddle boats which I do not care for, but I'm sure many other riders do.

I'm thinking about Adventureland Park in Fredrick, Maryland when it first opened and how they began to add more rides within the upcoming years. I was there when they debuted their first coaster, today they have two coasters and an extra flat ride that wasn't there before. If Lakemont Park's inaugural season works out, maybe they would do the same ( I can see them putting in another coaster, a water slide, or even a bounce house for the kiddies) I can even see them attracting more people if they put on a weekly concert series out on the greens.

But whatever happens I do hope and wish them the best of luck.

I mean for $20, can you really complain? Just don't do the waterpark.

The last time we went there they were literally giving out free ride-all-day passes to every single guest all day. The only thing you had to pay for was Leap the Dips. I've never seen anything so ridiculous. :lol:

For clarity.... I'm not bitching about the price, but the fact that we have no interest in the water attractions.

I don't go to the water park when I go to Dorney or Hershey and I don't ask where their rides-only price is...
