Americana Park/Lesourdsville Lake Park
Americana sadly is no more. Yes the park still stands but with
years of being closed and the current owner doing nothing with it and
refusing inquires about it the chances of it's re-opening are doubtful.
Still I will leave these pages up here as a memory of the great times
that countless people and myself had at this wonderful park.
Americana is a small traditional
park just north of Cincinnati Ohio. It's an old park with a classic John Miller
coaster and many old rides that you don't find often. This park lives in the shadow
of Paramount's Kings Island by gearing itself more towards families and picnics. One
tip for this park is to go in the evening because they have a $5 admission and it's rare
that you have long lines here.
I've only seen
rides like this at Holiday World and Geauga Lake. They're a ton of fun
as you get to control the ride, also it's a great way to cool off.
Americana has a nice midway with
plenty to do from games and food to keep you busy.
The first coaster you come to is
a the Serpent. I believe it is a Galaxy coaster by the Italian firm SDC. It
only has one train (please put the 2nd one on) so there's always a wait but it's a decent
There are several
great drops on this ride including the first.
