Dating back to 1894, Lakemont Park has become the 8th oldest amusement park in the United States. Originally founded as a trolley park, Lakemont now offers both an amusement park and water park for one admission. One of park's signature attractions is the world's oldest roller coaster, Leap-The-Dips. This last of its kind roller coaster was named a National Historic Landmark in 1996. Today, Lakemont Park thrills guests with 30 rides and attractions, including the Island Waterpark, two wooden roller coasters, go-karts, and miniature golf. Lakemont Park & Island Waterpark is located in Altoona off Interstate 99 at the Frankstown Road exit.
