Thanks for the great report. Looks like a great park with a nice coaster selection including two classic Schwarzkopf coasters.

I enjoy the oldies today - in a new park I mostly do the fancy new coasters only once, due to the longer lines, and then park myself into an Schwarzkopf coaster - with no line - for the rest of the day..... :lmao:

Great trip report Derek! I wasn't aware Lagoon had 2 dark rides. Maybe someday I might need to take a trip out there!

This definitely seems like a park I would really like, but I'm not sure how I would ever make it there, for many of the reasons you listed. Looks great, though. Thanks for the TR!

Any American park with two old dark rides and two Schwartzkopfs is worth noting.

Thanks for sharing this, Derek! I've heard of Lagoon before, but never actually knew anything about it. Looks like a great little park. I'll second what Chuck said up there ^. If I'm ever out that way, I'll be sure to make an effort to get to this place!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great stuff Derek. It seems heading up to Lagoon is always on our to-do list every summer, but we have yet to get up there. Maybe next year. :D

All of that, AND great flyers?!? Such a shame it's so out of the way.

Trust me, I passed up In-N-Out to come here and would gladly do it again!

That's a bold statement, my friend.

Awesome report!

Awesome TR Derek. I have been trying to get to this little park for years. It really is out of the way. I'm told their Halloween event is actually pretty good. I am hopeing to book a long lay over on one of my travel days so I can get out there and see it.
