Western New York State’s premier amusement park, Darien Lake Theme Park Resort is a popular overnight destination for Ontario families. Thrill rides include a dozen high-speed rides, including New York State’s tallest and fastest roller coaster. It has a full water park—Darien Lake Spashtown—with racing slides, tube slides, a lazy river, a 600,000-gallon wave pool, and more.
For young children, Hook’s Lagoon in the water park is a pirate-themed kiddie water play area with gentle water slides, a tipping barrel, a shallow pool, sprayers, and other fun water features. About a dozen rides in the amusement park are aimed at small children including a mini coaster, kiddie bumper cars, and a train ride.
On-site overnight accommodation options include hotel rooms in the Lodge on the Lake as well as cabins, guest house, “glamping tents” with a queen-size bed, and actual campsites for tent camping or RV camping,
