Fodor's Expert Review Lake Compounce

Farmington Amusement Park/Water Park

Opened in 1846, the country's oldest amusement park is known to locals simply as "the Lake." Today's attractions include a lakefront beach; a water park; and a clipper ship with a 300-gallon bucket of water that gives unsuspecting guests a good dousing. There are also such hair-raising rides as the Sky Coaster, the Boulder Dash, and the Zoomerang.
