  1. I hear it's no different at Silverwood in regards to guests not wearing masks...I'm sure it's going to be that way at any park. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  2. You can take the Free Farmington Trolly from the UTA Frontrunner Farmington Station Park and Ride Lot. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  3. In the past, that used to happen quite often, but not so much anymore. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  4. The park policy regarding single riders in the front and back rows only pertains to roller coasters that use trains as ride vehicles. Rides like Wild Mouse, Spider, Wicked, and Cannibal, which use carriers/cars, must have a minimum of 2 riders per carrier. This policy has been suspended temporary, due to Social Distancing Restrictions. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  5. They are, in fact, THE First Medium/Large Park to Open post COVID-19. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  6. I believe it is pretty safe to say that ride capacity may be cut by 50% or more, depending on the ride/seating arrangement, as it is. It is also possible that there will be additional distancing on carriers depending on the group size. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  7. Additionally, you can read what precautions Lagoon are putting into place here: http://www.lagoonpark.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Guest-Expectations-for-Opening-5.11.pdf Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  8. From what I've been told, Knoebels came out last fall to check out the new bogies on Wicked and checked out the trains on Cannibal. They certainly made the better decision, even after Lagoon replaced Wicked's Chassis 2 years ago, those ART Trains and Restraint System is just Superior to many others out there. I can hardly wait to see if they have the onboard hydraulic pumps and/or lighting. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  9. What are ART trains? Anyone have a picture of the new trains? I'm wondering why they replaced the trains only after a few years. Like many new coasters, I rode Impulse while holding the lap bar away from me, as it gets too tight. (Just a comment, I'm sure lots of people like a tight lap bar). ART Engineering GmbH/ART Product GmbH. Lagoon worked with them on BomBora, Cannibal, and their upcoming new coaster, provided trains for BomBora and Cannibal, and provided new Bogies for Spider and Wicked a couple years ago.

  10. You can thank Lagoon for the Booster Seats and the New ART Trains. [emoji6] Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  11. Except the owners of Lagoon are not Mormon. [emoji2955] Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  12. It should be further stated that the Freed Family owns Lagoon; Julie being the Director of Special Events, and her Father, Dave, the President and CEO. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  13. In case you weren't aware, Costco has the best price on All Day Passports. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  14. I will be up at Roller Coaster the Evening of September 7th. I can probably come up that morning to meet you. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  15. Let's take a look at Lagoon. As the story goes, Lagoon has never purchased parts for Jet Star 2 and Colossus The Fire Dragon from Schwarzkopf, even when they were in business, because Anton was pissed at Lagoon when they bought Jet Star 2 from the Seattle World's Fair for a steal, when Schwarzkopf was going through financial troubles. Lagoon has gotten parts for Fire Dragon through Magic Mountain, Six Flags over Georgia, and even Dorney (Lagoon has a purple Lazer Wheel Housing from 2007). Lagoon has had new track fabricated by Fabriweld in the early 90s and new Wheel Housings Fabricated for it. Lagoon's rebuilt track in place on Jet Star more than once, and even on Wicked (Which now has non ZIERER Chassis and ART Bogies). Lots of parks buy spare parts off of one another and vice versa. It's a very tight knit community. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  16. Agreed. Every time I heard someone say "Oh, Dueling Dragons is at the end of its service life" I wanted to punch them because they were either: 1. Lying. 2. Took such bad care of Dueling Dragons, to the tune of the WORST maintenance of any B&M in existence. Or even.... 3. Had been lied to so many times that they now believe the lies they were told as fact. There is simply *NO WAY* that Dueling Dragons was the end of its service life unless #2 was actually the case, and even still, a park IF THEY WANTED TO KEEP the ride, could give it a nice rehab. But the park couldn't publicly say "Oh, yeah, we simply just want to get rid of it because this British woman now controls our decisions, so... yeah... BRING IN THE BULLDOZERS!!!" So "end of service life" was the bullshit terminology that was used. I love this!!! I mean, you can't tell me a modern steel coaster wasn't built with the anticipation and expectation that it would be in constant operation for at least 40 years! The ridiculousness of Dueling Dragons "having reached the end of it's Service Life" when claimed was truly dumbfounding to say the least and totally BS as you said.

  17. Except, as the park previously announced, Primordial won't open in 2020, and 2021 is possible, but 2022 is probable. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  18. The same crane was used to stack Cannibal's Tower, btw. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  19. Lagoon has not filed a height variance with Farmington City, which means they can build the mountain for Primordial up to a height of 217 Feet. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  20. ...4.5 Gs isn't forceful. Got it! [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk ok whatever It's forceful, but it doesn't throw you around like Maverick or anything. better? I guess forceful is the wrong word. It's not...intense? Again the wrong word because this ride will scare the living crap out of you if you're afraid of heights or hanging upside down with a lapbar. I think enthusiasts have been trying too hard to judge how good a ride is based on how crazy it moves and how much you'll get thrown around, hence the hype of RMC. Yes, those rides are good, because they're good at what they do. But different rides are good for different reasons. Among my personal top 10 are Beast, Diamondback, TTD, and Eejanaika and they are all COMPLETELY different rides. Cannibal does some weird crap, but instead of its gimmicks being outerbank turns and stengel dives, they're lagoon rolls and gigantic loops. It provides an insane amount of quality hangtime and that's why you'll fall in love with it when you ride. Bottom line: Cannibal is a good ride. Throw out the typical enthusiast's "best coaster ever" and expect something completely new. I was just joshing you dude! [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  21. I actually disagree about the top 10 thing. I may be the black sheep here but I REALLY like Cannibal. It's in my personal top 10. Granted, I haven't been around the block nearly as much as a lot of the other people on the site, but I think Cannibal is just a fun coaster. It's super re-ride-able. It's not forceful, that's true, but it has a ton of hangtime and the first drop is absolutely amazing. Take that for what you will. I hope I'm not alone in this, I think this ride deserves more credit than it gets. ...4.5 Gs isn't forceful. Got it! [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] I would expect moderate to heavy crowds on a September weekend. It depends on if Frightmares has started yet since that draws lots of people. The park is definitely doable on crowded days though thanks to the wonderful single rider lines on Cannibal and Wicked as well as overall solid operations for the major rides. Honestly, the worst part about crowded days at Lagoon is navigating through people on the midway since the park has no queue space for the major coasters, flat rides, or food services. On any crowded day, the lines spill into the walkways and can get rather obnoxious to deal with. Cannibal is an excellent coaster. I wouldn't say it's "top 10 in the country" or anything of the like, but it does what it's supposed to very well and has some unique elements you really can't find on other coasters. I like it mostly for its originality and weirdness. Thank you! This is what I was looking for. TPR to the rescue as always. It would likely be early to mid Sept. Waiting on WCB dates. I may just try a weekday, so in August, just to try and avoid the crowds entirely. Yeah, August is Hot and Crowded, even on week days. lol I might be able to get a great discount voucher for you...maybe not as good as Doppel Looping, but close. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  22. Here's how you get to Lagoon from Salt Lake International. From Airport Station, take a TRAX Green Line (704) Train towards West Valley. Get off at the North Temple Station and board a FrontRunner (750) Train Northbound. Get off at Farmington Station (Can't miss the big Roller Coaster/Lagoon Logo art installation) and catch the Farmington Trolley (667) to the Park's Drop Off Area. There is a Hyatt Place in Station Park (in Farmington) and a Hampton Inn near Lagoon. You can access the Farmington Trolley easily from either hotel. https://www.shopatstationpark.com/directory/ If you want, feel free to pm me and I will see if I'm available.

  23. Definitely, I'm going to get to HITP at least once. Always better to error on the side of caution? Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  24. Were they running earlier in warmer temperatures? Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
  25. Being that Mark Huffman is behind it, I'm not surprised. Really miss his and Christy's work. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk
