Darien Lake is opening its gates Saturday morning for the first day of its 2013 season.

The park commemorated its season opening with a ceremony for park founder Paul Snyder who bought Darien Lake in 1964. The park dedicated a fountain to Snyder as a part of the ceremonies.

New attractions at Darien Lake this season include a new tower ride called "Blast Off" and upgraded laser show called "Ignite the Night" which will include water technologies and pyrotechnics.

There are also a variety of concerts this summer including Tim McGraw, the Dave Matthews Band, Bob Dylan and Lil' Wayne.
