Dariien Lake Theme Park Adventure

If you live in or visit Western New York, it's a tradition of many to visit Darien Lake .   I live close this area so I have been visiting Darien Lake since I was a little girl. Darien Lake has been a source of entertainment since 1964.

Darien Lake Resort is located in Darien Center, New York. This is in Upstate New York between Buffalo and Rochester New York. It is about 45 minutes from Niagara Falls. This park resort has the largest water park in this region, complete with a wave pool, a 20,000 seat performing arts center operated by Live Nation and world class in-park entertainment. The park boasts more than 50 rides including six world class roller coasters, and dozens of family friendly rides.

If you are a roller coaster fanatic-you should check out the awesome roller coasters at Darien Lake. This year, the Viper is 35 years old. The Viper was my first real time roller coaster ride probably 20 years ago. I still love it! They also have a wooden roller coaster, I'm not sure I've grown to love this one as much, but my kids jump in line to ride it first thing because it is near where you enter the park. Do you want really scary? Try the Mind Eraser or the Motocoaster which launches its brave riders into the air. Don't forget to get in line for the Predator, another exciting ride.

I love that Darien Lake has something everyone in the family will enjoy, even our little girl whose still a toddler. They have shows where they sing and the audience can participate. Shows like Thomas and Friends Full Steam Ahead Live Show keeps the youngsters engaged.

Make sure you hit that water park! From the Lazy Days Lagoon to the Big Kahuna you're bound to find a favorite water ride as well. Weather permitting, the water park is open daily 11am-7pm.

If you are looking to enjoy the park for more than a day, they have some great accommodations. The Lodge On The Lake Hotel is situated close to the theme park. The rooms are outfitted with a small fridge, and microwave. If you want to upload them awesome pictures you took all day in the park, the hotel offers free wireless internet.

Looking for the rustic experience, they offer fully equipped cabins to a campground for tents and trailers. The cabins are comfortable and equipped with a T.V. , fridge, microwave and furnishings. The cabins and campground are situated close to the lake. The campground is within walking distance of the park.

Darien Lake has something to offer everyone. If your looking for the best rides and shows to entertain the kids, awesome concerts, among a variety of other activities go visit. You can connect via Facebook and Darien Lake Website


  1. Looks like a great amusement park with awesome ride! I'm so bummed we missed it when we drove to Niagara Falls!

  2. That looks like so much fun! My son would love to visit this place one day. :)

  3. Too bad I live in downstate NY or I would surely go there if only for the water part of it! I would steer clear of the roller coaster--yes I am a chicken and I prefer my feet firmly on Terra Firma!
