The park is well known for having one of the oldest wooden roller coasters still in operation, Leap the Dips, which dates back 1902.
The park plans to remove some of the older rides for attractions such as a "new miniature golf course, batting cages, playgrounds, basketball and sand volleyball courts, and expanded picnic areas," according to a post from the park on Facebook. The park will keep and renovate many of the existing rides and attractions, including the roller coasters, water park, paddle boats, train, go-karts and antique cars.
Lakemont Park will reopen on November 17th, 2017 in time for their popular holiday themed Lights On The Lake event. In coming years the park will have more of a community park feel, with attractions operating with individual fees and no gate admission. The park hopes this leads to more guests being able to visit, due to the free general admission. After the holiday season operations, the park is planning to reopen again in May of 2018.
In addition to Leap the Dips, the park also has Skyliner, a 1987 PTC designed wooden roller coaster.
