SOUTHINGTON – Four and five-year olds can get free passes to Lake Compounce for the 2018 season.
The theme park announced the Preschool Play Pass Friday as well as other new or returning features for the upcoming year.
Children 3 years and under can also enter free. In a release, Lake Compounce marketing director Sara Frias said parents can register their 3 and 4-year old children by March 31st for a free pass if they also purchase an adult pass.
Visitors can register online at www.lakecompounce.com.
“Proof of age (birth certificate or travel passport) must be shown at the park between May 5th and June 3rd in order to activate the pass,” a press release said.
The park is also holding Black Friday sales on season passes.
Lake Compounce has grown steadily in recent years and added to its offerings.
In 2016, the park opened a new roller coaster called Phobia Phear. The year before, Lake Compounce opened an exhibit of animatronic dinosaurs which roar and move. There's also an area where children can dig in the sand for fossils. In 2014, the park opened a 15-acre campground with 20 furnished cabins, 24 sites for recreational vehicles and space for 30 tents.
Lake Compounce is owned by Parques Reunidos Group, a Spanish-based company that operates 55 parks around the world. The park straddles the Southington-Bristol line.
Earlier this year, Lake Compounce bought eight acres in Southington south of the lake for expansion but haven’t announced plans for the property.
