Red face Salt Lake: Lagoon Park Development News Thread

Thought we should have a thread on Utah's only theme Park "Lagoon". Each year Lagoon adds new rides to the park. This would be a great place to add any news or rumors about any upcoming new rides or other development to the park.

Here is the latest buzz......

2013/2014 - New Thrill Coaster - Rumor - (10/27/11) I’m told that Lagoon’s next coaster will be in the 200 foot tall range and feature inversions, and is intended to take over the Top Eliminator location. Don’t look for it to open until 2013 or even 2014 at this point however.

Not really sure where the "Top Eliminator location" would be.

Also.....

Coming 2012....New Ride / Air Race - Rumor - (10/21/11) While we have previously seen pictures of coaster track on site at Lagoon for over a year now, there is no indication that the park is planning on installing this for the 2012 season. So far the only rumor for 2012 I’ve seen yet says the park is looking at a Zamperla Air Race ride. Check out the video of the one installed at Luna Park in Coney Island.

I like this thread. I love lagoon for its quirkiness and mixture of old-timey fair and new amusement park. I love when they get new rides but I am a lonely nerd on this front. No one I know shares my excitement. It doesn't fit in real development news so I think its own thread is a good idea.

If the rumor is true that they are getting a new coaster (a real and exciting 200 ft coaster) I say finally. The last coaster was a disappointment especially after all the build up.

Good idea for a topic, but not enough for it's own thread. This is the perfect thing to discuss in the MSA thread.

Top Eliminator is the dragster ride over on the north end just below the Skyscraper ferris wheel. It was added sometime in the years you list. I think you have to pay some extravagant extra fee to go on it so I have never done it. I would much rather see a great coaster there.

I like this thread.

And I am impressed that Lagoon has added so many attractions over the past few years. I havn't been to Lagoon since 2000. I wish Elitches would invest in more rides and attractions like Lagoon has been doing over the past few years. Since I have lived here there has only been 2 Roller Coasters added and only hand full of rides added to the park.

Plus Elitch Gardens doesn't have the amount of land like Lagoon to expand, they have plenty of room and if they were to ever make it a National Attraction they could always expand to the parking lot and build a parking structure and share it with Pepsi Center. But that's all just wishful dreaming. The city is big enough to accomodate it but the winter months hender the next level from happening.

I found this on the web of America's top 50 Amuesment parks. Both Elitches and Lagoon are on the list!!! Pretty cool considering both parks are primarily local attractions only a small percentage of out of town visitors. From the smaller surrounding states like. Boise, Wyoming, New Mexico, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas.

Do you have 2010 info? That would be interesting to see if Lagoon has become more popular with more rides/attractions as compared to the 2000 data.

My family went to Lagoon in July. It was the first time I'd been there in several years and the first time my family had been there. When we lived in Denver, we frequented Elitch's. We came away from Lagoon preferring it over Elitch's by far. There were more rides and other attractions, and trees that offered shade. Lagoon came accross as more intimate and homey than Elitch's. Lagoon offers more in the way of steel coasters and traditional rides, but I like Elitch's wooden coaster better than Lagoon's old wooden coaster.
I've wondered why Elitch's doesn't put much into expansion.

I understand that Bombora was intended to be a family coaster, but WOW that things sucks. I hadn't been to Lagoon in several years and then two summers ago I finally went and was excited for the bat, Lagoon finally has an inverted coaster, Again that things sucks. I would honestly rather Lagoon skipped 2-3 even 5 years of new mediocre rides and invest in a real roller coaster. I do however really like Wicked, I was pleasantly surprised when I went on that. While a 200' coaster is great and all, I seriously wish they would pool their money for several years and actually go big.

Then again I was spoiled while I lived in Cleveland because Cedar Point was only 90 minutes away and they have some of the most AMAZING roller coasters. Many of which when they were built were the tallest, or steepest or fastest. If any of you are coaster fans, make a trip to Cedar Point, well worth it. Denver shouldn't have a problem expanding the park there, no the population isn't that of Ohio but it should be enough to support a couple of really good coasters. Cedar Point is on an Island/Peninsula in Lake Eire, talk about crappy winter weather.

"Family coaster" is really just another way of saying "you can ride on it with your toddler." They focused on kiddy land for a while, and those rides were part of that focus. Keep in mind that came after a steady addition of a new thrill every year for nearly a decade. And now they're back to bigger things. Just be patient.

And BTW, it's just a matter of taste, but I'm glad they didn't spend money on a more intense inverted coaster. I've been on my fair share of roller coasters (Cedar Point, Busch Gardens, Islands of Adventure, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags.. you name it). Inverted coasters really just aren't that thrilling.

One of my favorite roller-coasters is an inverted roller-coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain. I forget the name, but the track is orange. Anyone down in Southern California know the name of it? Delts?

Hmmm... I haven't been to Magic Mountain for a while. I'll ask a few friends. Coasters are always my favorites, and I would like to see Lagoon go really big. I mean, after all, aren't some of the world's greastest coasters actually made in the Wasatch Metro?

I believe you're thinking of the "X." And I'd have to say that is one of my favorites as well.

If I remember correctly, it had an Asian theme to it. There was an even newer roller-coaster that involved fire, but it's not that one I'm thinking of.

Most of my extended family lives in the Denver area. I went to Elich Gardens for the first time a couple of years ago with my cousin. There was a big thunderstorm that morning and it stopped raining just after we got there. Not only was it sunny afterward, but the park was almost empty. Employees easily outnumbered guests. We rode some coasters over and over without waiting in line. Elich Gardens is smaller than Lagoon, but much more dense. It's also pretty awesome how the park is downtown. I'd like to go to Denver sometime and see Elich Gardens on a busy day. I'd also like to walk around downtown (which is hard to do when your relatives live in Greenwood Village and Highlands Ranch).

I guess inverted's are just a matter of opinion. I love inverted roller coasters, the two that I can remember are Cedar Point and Busch Gardens Virginia.

The Bat at Lagoon is so lame, it's like saying the old car ride by the Wooden Rollercoaster the one with the metal bar down the middle is the same as the new cars up by the Skycoaster. lol

I have not been to Silverwood up by Coeur d'Alene (Northwests largest amusement park) but have heard from people in Boise who have traveled up there that the rollercoasters are rather impressive for a smaller park. I'm not sure of the size comparison of Silverwood compared to Lagoon or Elitch, but their website lists over 65 rides (Lagoons mentions over 45) along with the largest water park in the NW. Pretty cool considering this park first opened in 1988.

Got to admit. I really like this thread, too. I grew up in Farmington and had a season's pass my whole life (allthough it usually consisted of sneaking under the fence). I remember catching a water snake in Farmington Creek - which runs through the park - and letting it go in the pool... hmmf. A lot of screaming that day. That old pool was huge. Does anyone else remember the HUGE stainless steel waterslide or the spinning thing that would suck you under it if you fell off into the water? Do they still do the shootout in Pioneer Villiage?

For business owners out there, Lagoon Day seems like a pretty awesome way to through a company party in the summertime.
