Went with my 6yo niece on Saterday, June 4. Entrance is $4 and it's $4 per ride ticket. Do the math and buy the $22 wristband that includes entrance and unlimited rides. We had a blast on every single ride, especially the Ladybug Roller Coaster!...More

We were really struggling to find kid friendly things to do on our trip to New Orleans! This was awesome!! My little girl loved it! We would definitely be regulars if we lived closer!

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
