Attractions
Ride of Steel is by far the best coaster in the park. This Intamin coaster is fast and smooth. Orange County Coaster MotoCoaster is the first Motocoaster in the US. Other than that the coasters are average.

However, the park has a good selection of flat rides, as well as water rides that are soakers. Silver Bullet, Sleigh Ride, and Rodeo Roundup are worth riding if you have time. One of the best attractions at Darien Lake is the Fascination Parlor, one of only three remaining in the US. Fascination was a very popular game in the golden age of amusement parks, and the air conditioning in the Fascination Parlor and addictive nature of the game are irresistible on a hot day.
Food
Two Subway locations can be found in the park. Beaver Brothers Lakeside Cafe is the largest eatery, serving breakfast in the morning and burgers, salads, and finger foods throughout the day. Pizza, pasta, chicken, hot dogs, sausage, and tacos can also be found at the park. One unqiue place to snack is Captain Frye's, where you can get fried onion rings, cheese sticks, or mushrooms.
Operating Season
The park generally opens in mid-May a couple of days each week before daily operations start in late-June and continue through Labor Day. Weekend operations extend the season into mid-October.
