Lagoon Trip Report: Part 2
This is part two of our trip report to Lagoon Park in Farmington, Utah. Click here for Part 1 where we discussed Lagoon’s nine coasters including Wicked. Today, I’ve got some picture of some of Lagoon’s many non-coaster rides. They have quite a few with a varying degree of intensity.
Great views of the park can be seen from the skyride and ferris wheels. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there are two classic dark rides in the park- Dracula’s Castle and Terror Ride. The swings are really well placed right on the edge of the Lagoon with the beautiful mountains as scenery.
Lagoon is home to one of the best looking raft rides ever, Rattlesnake Rapids. It also has one of the best backdrops for a ride with the mountains in the background. The park did a great job by including lots of little theme elements all over the area that the ride occupies in the back of the park. Too bad it was a little cold to ride for me, but props to the park for having it open and the few braves souls who thought getting soaked on a forty-something degree day was a good idea.
The park is also home to a classic log flume, which are slowly disappearing from other parks today so it is nice to see one still in operation.
Check out the pictures below and stay tuned for part three, which includes a look at some the most surprising aspects of Lagoon Park!
