[RCT3] East Side Lagoon: 1982 - A Stroll Through the Park in Roller Coaster Games, Models, and Other Randomness Posted May 2, 2013 1971 - East Side Lagoon Amusement Park The park has been relatively quiet lately. Summer goes on and on. The nights are cool and the days are blistering. Pittsburgh seems not to notice the noise from up on the hill. It goes about it's business and East Side goes about its own. The gentle laughter of the park gives a certain warmth to the place. The picnic groves which once dotted the park have all but been replaced in favor of inviting planters and shaded groves. Life goes on as usual for the refreshments business at the park. This welcoming view of the Falls is assurance that the old traditions have not gone at an easy price. Though we can all appreciate that many of these traditions still survive. The old can still coincide with the new. This antique Carousel carries on the spirit of the old East Side Pleasure Park. Once overcrowded and in disarray, the parks midway has become a welcoming symbol to all who enter the front gates. To break the train of thought.. rumors have been floating about saying that they may extend the layout of Cyclone by a few hundred feet. Its layout has been extended once before, after its first year of operation, but no drastic changes were made. Should this classic be tampered with? Or left alone? They also claim that the land behind Cyclone is to be home to another steel coaster at some point, similar to Hornet. Perhaps built interacting with the extended Cyclone layout? Only time will tell... It has laid as an empty plot of dirt for a while now. The park is no stranger to changing layouts. 'Dragon Coaster' has changed layouts twice before, and Racer was drastically overhauled once as well. Oh if only they'd get it right the first time! Look at those new trains! Hopping over this new airtime hill. Seriously, Dragon Coaster is one of the most intense 'kiddie' coasters out there! Backside angle. From 60's style open pathways to this back to basics look, the park loves changing the way things are. This part of the park is almost unrecognizable compared to just a year ago. Too many plants!!
