  1. There's the Green Line light rail that connects the airport to the commuter train that has a stop across Interstate 15 from Lagoon. There's a free shuttle that connects that train station to the park. I would say we have a lot a flat rides. Some of the more unique or classic ones are; Samurai (Mondial Top Scan) Rock-O-Plane (Eyerly Aircraft Rock-O-Plane) Flying Aces (Bisch Rocco Flying Skooters 10; and they allow you to snap the cables!) And if you're into dark rides, Lagoon has 2 Bill Tracy rides; Dracula's Castle and Terroride. Terroride was just refurbed a couple season's back and is phenominal, but Dracula's Castle has aged. Its slated to get a refurb for the next season, but it's rumor only. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  2. I would expect a family thrill ride/coaster. Lagoon has a huge family demographic and their last two biggest rides catered to the thrill seekers. However, I feel we will see a lot of money go into theming for this ride. After the success of the Terroride revamp, I expect some great theming results for this ride that everyone will love, kids and adults alike. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  3. I suggest visiting the national parks with Lagoon. During the summer months, Utah doesn't have much to offer besides Lagoon, Snowbird, (they have summer month activities and rides: multiple ski resorts out here do,) a small but well-run zoo, and LDS museums everywhere. If you're not into any of that other stuff, the national parks are the best bet to make the most out of a visit to Utah. But, don't forget about the summer tubing that can be done at the Olympic Park during summer days as well. It is a bit more thrilling than you'd expect. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  4. It's still there with all the other animals for the train. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  5. The current construction area is more than double the size Cannibal takes up, and there's a huge hole in the middle of it. It's exciting to see! I hope Primordial becomes the dark ride/roller coaster hybrid it's been rumored. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  6. If you come during the week before Lagoon's haunt opens, some haunts in the state would be open during that time. Here's the top of those that should be open when you come down if you're interested in any of them. Castle of Chaos http://www.castleofchaos.com Fear Factory http://www.fearfactoryslc.com Nightmare on 13th http://www.nightmareon13th.com Asylum 49 http://www.asylum49.com
  7. Never say never. Lagoon could still try an in-house wooden coaster someday. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  8. With them being new trains, I somewhat expect it to get as fast as it used to be like how Stormchaser's end used to be a crawl, but now it zips through the end. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  9. I'm guessing you mean forgettable. Yes, I meant forgettable. Of course. my opinion is going to differ from locals that have an emotional attachment. Just like I feel differently about the Cyclone at Coney Island than many one time riders. For locals, it doesn't have the cleanest record anyway. It is overall rough and loud on the turns, has barely any floater airtime, (and only in certain seats,) and is known for its age more than its rideability. New trains will make it at least a smooth, classic ride. Although most of the track has been redone over the last ten years at most, it still has the old and rickety stigma.

  10. I advise against going to the site. It froze my device and restarted it with missing programs. Hopefully the company can fix that. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  11. I know this is considered small, but Jet Star 2's are still fairly intense rides, especially when Bat at Lagoon is on the list, but not Jet Star 2.
  12. I've heard countless times by the GP that they find Elitch Gardens a far better amusement park than Lagoon, so they are doing something right that regular enthusiasts don't see. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  13. Honestly, the only reason it's been a more solid rumor is because the water ride is what is talked about more as of late, however plans can change easily with this place. I remember when Cannibal was supposedly going to be named Savage before the name Cannibal showed up. If it is back to a dark ride coaster hybrid of sorts, I'm all for it as well. Either is a good idea. I can see a couple more flats in due time, but I noticed a while back how Lagoon has one of the highest amount of rides that flip you upside down, (8) so I don't see them getting any thrilling flat rides anytime soon, but I would LOVE for a any giant frisbee at Lagoon.

  14. Even if the budget was over on Cannibal, Terroride's custom in-house refurb went over smoothly this year, and I expect the same outcome from Dracula's Castle's refurb coming next year (rumoured.) I don't think they are ready to stop on in-house ride additions. BomBora was technically Lagoon's first in-house ride as well, and it didn't go over budget. This year doesn't seem like a new ride addition, but I say the budget is for new rides is still being spent elsewhere. Screamer was dismantled before the season ended for what is rumored to be new bathrooms in that location, as Screamer would be moving with Samurai over by the new bathrooms that opened this year near Cannibal. With the rumoured in-house custom set rebuild for Dracula's Castle and new trains for Roller Coaster, I see the budget as well spent for this year and still give what the local gp want. The biggest complaints from gp were the bathrooms and how the older rides "look like they are falling apart." From what I've heard, Primordial isn't looking at an opening until 2020 or 2021. Also, the rumor holding up still that it's a dinosaur themed water ride with a budget somewhere between $12-20 million including a mountain. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  15. Samurai at Lagoon has been down all year for "maintenance" and never opened for the season. Even with it being a prototype, Mondial has never had the best of luck with their thrill rides ever. Both Samurai and Cliffhanger at Lagoon have so much downtime between themselves, I see why Lagoon hasn't bought a ride from them since, even if those rides are some of the best at Lagoon.
