Lagoon does a great job combining the old and the new seamlessly into a wonderful experience. The park last three coaster installations were in-house creations and all deliver: Cannibal, Wicked and Bombora. Cannibal and Wicked provide a one-two punch that that compete with any park and Bombora is a fun family coaster with a surf inspired soundtrack. Other relatively new thrill rides in the include Air Race, Cliffhanger (a drenching Top Spin), Samurai (Top Scan) and Rocket (S&S Tower). However, the parks combines the old with the new
Classic rides include two dark rides, a wonderfully scenic ferris wheel, classic train ride through a zoo, Flying Scooters, Rock-o-Plane and a SkyRide over a classic midway.
To further preserve the old there is Pioneer Village, a collection or small eclectic museums housed in old buildings.
The park has Arby's (two locations) and Subway to cover the sandwich fanatic. But of course you can find traditional park food, hot dogs, corn dogs, burgers and chicken tenders. When you want to go beyond the boring fare you can try Teriyaki Stix for Asian bowls or The Old Mill Grill for BBQ that is covered in a tasty and rich BBQ sauce.
Traditional snacks such as popcorn, cotton candy and ice cream can be found at the park, but you can also find Hawaiian Ice, Queues de Castor (Beaver Tails) or Dirty Coke, a regional favorite made by flavoring Coke with Coconut.

Lagoon is one of America oldest and largest independent parks. The park contains 10 coasters, two dark rides, a wide variety of flat rides, a train ride through a zoo, water park and a few historical exhibits/museums. Wicked and Cannibal are both great recent additions to the park and really amp up the thrill factor making Lagoon a destination park. Due to the nature of some coasters being designed in-house booster seats are available for small rides to ride some of the larger coasters. The park has traditional flats along with newer high intensity rides. Walkways are wide, well shaded and nicely landscaped. The park provides a variety of food options, including chains (Subway and Arbys). Pioneer Village provides a relaxed area where you can gain a little knowledge.
Lagoon was a huge surprise for me! It's a family style, traditional park that has plenty of variety for all ages. If you're a fan of parks like Knoebel's you'll feel right at home here. The flats are a solid mix of older (Rock O Plane) and newer (Air Race) and everything in between (Paratrooper, etc). The coasters are the same way! Even with the park being nearly completely empty we still had plenty of things to occupy our time for the entire day.
Lagoon is one of the best parks of its size. While they don't have many huge attractions (Wicked is their only travel-worthy coaster), the park is full of a number of uncommon rides, most of which still run great. For non-riders, the park also offers Pioneer Village, a recreation of a frontier town with several mini museums in the buildings. Additionally, the entire park has excellent landscaping, though theming is relatively minor. As the park is still privately owned, it has a much different feel from the modern corporate parks, which gives it a unique charm. While not worth a trip to Salt Lake City, this park is definitely worth a visit for anyone who happens to be in the area.
This awesome park is just out side of Salt Lake City and is a must when your in the area! There is a lot of history in this park like the Pioneer Village area and a woody from the 1920's. Lagoon has a great line up of rides like an awesome Schwarzkopf looper (Fire Dragon) and a really cool tower launch coaster from Zierer (Wicked) as well as some great flat/ water rides! There is an included water park and the park allows you to bring in outside food and drink. There is a lack of shade in many of the ride queues which can be uncomfortable on a hot day and the park has very strange single ride rules on there coasters. But other than that, lagoon is a great park and every one should visit when they can!
I love this park! This is probably my favorite "Non-chain" theme park in the US. This park has an amazing atmosphere and has quite a selection of great rides. You can bring you lunch into the park and stake out a picnic bench and just leave it there until you are ready to eat. All the major rides are all in the same section of the park so it does get a little crowded in that area but I felt I went through the lines pretty quick. Don't forget to bring your swimsuit, they have a waterpark!
