Colorado Amusement Park Goes Goth for a Day
An amusement park in Colorado looks a tiny bit different one day each year with its annual Gothic Takeover.
Colorado's Lakeside Amusement Park
The event takes place each summer at Colorado's Lakeside Amusement Park located at 4601 Sheridan Boulevard, Denver, CO 80212. While the amusement park is not as big or well-known as its counterpart of Elitch Gardens, Lakeside is definitely well-known to the locals and fun for the whole family.
Now, on any other day, it would probably be wise to wear something other than black when you're preparing to spend the entire day in the summer heat and sun, but that's not what the Gothic Takeover is all about.
