Media Relations

There are so many stories to tell within Palace Entertainment’s family of parks! It’s hard to match the amusement industry history you’ll find within our portfolio, including America’s Oldest Amusement Park, Lake Compounce, which celebrates its 175th season in 2021, Idlewild & SoakZone, the third-oldest amusement park in the nation, and Kennywood, world-renowned for its unique collection of rare and historic rides including three wooden roller coasters that date back to the 1920s. It is one of only two amusement parks honored as a National Historic Landmark, America’s highest designation for historic places. Palace Entertainment also touts the largest outdoor water park in the country, Noah’s Ark in the Wisconsin Dells, and California’s largest water park, Raging Waters Los Angeles. Palace Entertainment also now owns and operates Adventureland Resort, the Home of Iowa’s Best Thrills in the Greater Des Moines area.

That’s just a sampling of our stories, however, there are so many more to share! Want to learn more? Members of the media and communications professionals are encouraged to contact our Communications Department.
