Ready for some popcorn and a corndog?
Lakeside Amusement Park is reopening Thursday night, after delays with staffing and the pandemic.
Brenda Fishman, the park’s head of operations, said the park planned on reopening earlier in the summer but first they needed staff to run the park, The Know reported.
The amusement park held open interviews on July 10 and their website still reflects the requests for grill cooks, ride operators and maintenance mechanics but all is ready to go for tonight.
The park will be open from 7-11 p.m., which is normal business hours Monday through Friday. On the weekend, park hours are 2-11:30 p.m. Park tickets cost $18 Monday through Friday and $28 on Saturday and Sunday.
Lakeside Amusement Park and the Lakeside town was founded by Adolf Zang in 1907-08, as a way to get around Denver’s Sunday drinking laws. Zang ran his father’s brewery, Zang Brewery.
The park is one of the oldest amusement parks in the U.S. and the oldest still running in Colorado.
