Altoona, Pennsylvania, USA

Lakemont Park is a theme park located in Altoona, Pennsylvania. The park is the eighth oldest theme park in the United States of America, and is home to the oldest operating roller coaster.

Lakemont Park was founded in 1894 as a trolley park, one of many that would open in the late nineteenth century into the early twentieth century in the eastern United States. Today, it has the distinction of being home to the world's oldest operating coaster, Leap the Dips, and one of the few side-friction wooden coasters left in existence. The other star attraction at Lakemont is Skyliner, a relocated 1960 woodie.

Between 2017 and 2018, the park was closed for a major refurbishment.
