“Home to the worlds oldest rollercoaster”

Lakemont Park, located in Altoona, Pennsylvania, houses the world's oldest-surviving roller coaster, the Leap-The-Dips. On June 19, 1996, the roller coaster was added to the list of National Historic Landmarks by the National Park Service. The park opened in 1894 as a trolley park and became an amusement park in the summer of 1899. It is one of only thirteen trolley parks still operating, and the 8th oldest amusement park in the United States. The park was owned by the Boyer Candy Company from May 23, 1986 until July 1, 1988, when it was called Boyertown USA.

Wow, this roller coaster was scary just because it is so loud, rickety, and jumpy. there are points where the car actually comes off the track a bit. But it was fun to ride despite the scariness.

We had a great time at Lakemont Park riding the various rides there. It was only $5 for admission on the weekday to the rides and waterpark with only a few attractions (such as the Leap-the-Dips coaster) costing a little bit extra. Great way to spend $5 if you enjoy carnival/amusement park rides.
