COVID-19 Information

To Our Valued Guests

Lake Compounce – May 8, 2020 -This year hasn’t gone like any of us expected. We know how challenging it has been to wait. We want to see you, too!

We continue to plan towards Opening Day, though an exact date remains to be determined. Our top priority, as always, is the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members. We will continue following the rulings and recommendations of our local, state and federal leadership throughout this process, working alongside health and safety officials and our colleagues in the amusement and attractions industries.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on our operations and the wider world, we have suspended work on Venus Vortex until next year. Venus Vortex will make its splashing debut in 2021. This beast of a water slide deserves the spotlight and a full season for its opening, and that is not possible this year.

Because of these changes and the uncertainty of the situation, we have extended all 2020 Season Passes to be valid through the end of our 2021 Season, including newly purchased season passes for a limited time. It’s the right thing to do in appreciation of your patience and support.

While the experience will be different from any other season in our history, we remain committed to delivering the safe, family fun that has been our calling card since 1846. From all of us at Lake Compounce, thank you for your continued support. We can’t wait until the day you’re back with us and the sounds of summer fill the air again.
