Take 10 - Kid-Friendly Destinations
More in the Take 10 series
If you like an adrenaline rush, or have older kids who do, then head to Lake Compounce Family Theme Park, an old-school amusement park that is home to roller coasters called “Thunder N’ Lightning,’’ “Boulder Dash,’’ and “The Wildcat.’’ If things get hot, you can float along the gentle river of Lazy Bay, or ride a tube into the lake. Make sure to hit the rides before stopping for cotton candy. Opens May 13.
