Among the most historic amusement parks in the U.S., Lakeside has about 40 rides, including the Cyclone roller coaster, a midway with carnival and arcade games, and a rare steam-powered miniature train from the early 20th century that circles the lake. It is rougher around the edges than Elitch Gardens, but the retro style and historic cachet of the rides makes it worth a visit. There are also food stands and picnic facilities, plus a separate Kiddie’s Playland with 15 rides. Allow 3 hours.
