Maggiekat and I are flying up next Saturday for a quick day trip

If you want to meet up with some peeps from LagoonisFun, just let me know.

 

Always like meeting new people

I might be able to meet up that evening, but I've been mostly avoiding Saturdays now that Cannibal is Open and the Commercials have been Airing.

 

EDIT: Crap! Double Post.

I've been telling people not to bother riding Cannibal at all if you don't ride it after dark, since it's just so much better after dark. So far, everyone has agreed. It's too bad you won't get the full Cannibal Experience.

 

Also, if you aren't aware, Costco has the Best Prices for Lagoon All Day Passports at $39.99 and they are GAD Tickets, so you take them right to the Gate. There's a Costco conveniently located off of 1-15 at 400 South, in Bountiful. I would also recommend getting to the Park at 9:30am, so you'll be able to hit everything early, since most head to LAB.

 

If Cannibal isn't Open yet, hit Wicked, Spider, Mouse, Dragon, Coaster, Puff, BomBora, Bat, Jet Star 2, then Check on Cannibal. With the Flats, I would also recommend hitting Samurai, Rocket, Air Race First (#1 Green and #5 Blue are the Best Planes), and Flying Aces Earlier, rather than Later.

 

Don't discount the ZIERER Family Drop Towers either, they are Awesome, and Jumping Dragon too. Turn of the Century and Screamer are the best ZIERER Wave Swinger and HUSS Enterprise Rides I've experienced, since they are Operated as Designed, not Neutered. Don't miss the two Dark Rides, Terroride and Dracula's Castle either, as they are Bill Tracey, with a bit of Lagoon. Lagoon's Carousel is also the Fastest I've been on, and I love my Wood Carousels.

 

Pioneer Village, if you get a Chance, take a Gander. Lagoon has the Only Nickelodeon on Public Display in the Music Hall, the China Shop has Books from Brigham Young's Collection, the Dern Barn has been Rated as "One of the Most Haunted Buildings in America," the Coin Museum is Insured for over 1 Million Dollars it's self, the Armory has Butch Cassidy's, as well as other Outlaws' Guns, Rifles used in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, the First Soda Fountain in Utah is in the Bakery, the Rock Church and the Jail are must see as well. I'm also Related to the Builder of the Gingerbread House, and the School House is where my Great Grandfather went to School as a Boy and Shopped in the Co-Op too.

 

Rattlesnake Rapids is a Great Ride Designed in House by Dal Freeman and Lagoon, with Intamin as a Contractor for the Ride System. Cliffhanger can be a Fun Water Ride too.

 

There's also a lot of little touches added around the park, like the Dragon Ivy Tunnel behind Jumping Dragon, the Chandelier in Tipsey Tea Cups, the OdySea Song, Air Race's imbedded Platform Lights and Becons, the Correct Japanese on Samurai, the Japanese Paintings on the Chinese Themed Jumping Dragon, the Jeeps on Red Rock Rally named after Off Road Trails in Moab, the Plane Model Names on Flying Aces (Fokker and Swordfish are usually the Easiest to Snap), the Speedway Jr. House with Lagoon's Address, and numerous other details that are great about Lagoon. I believe Lagoon is the Only Park in the Country with it's own Private Water Treatment Plant and with the Co-Gen, now Offline, was able to Produce nearly 3 Gigawatts of Power, while using the Water from LAB to cool the Engines and Heat the Water in LAB.

 

I highly recommend picking up a copy of "Lagoon, America's Largest Family-Owned Amusement Park," as it has a lot of Great History about the Park.

Cannibal is still the greatest name for any coaster ever.
Especially because it lives up to it's name.

 

So, you're saying it actually eats people. Duly noted. I'll cross that coaster off of my list to ride! [emoji14]

 

Nope, it just Eats all other Coasters in their Tracks.

 

I see what you did there...!

Yup, and all the Credit goes to Lagoon for that one.

Nice!

 

Someday, when I'm visiting relatives out in Denver, I should just take a couple of days and come out to check out your fine-looking park (and devour Cannibal, of course!) It's not THAT much further away at that point!

So how is this ride going to be on the fatties out there? Have many people been turned away?

I'd hate to make a 7-hour drive and have to take that walk of shame.

I'm 6'2 and about 280, if that helps. I've made it on Bizarro (SFNE), Wicked Twister, Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, Outlaw Run, and Goliath (SFGAm). Not as lucky on El Toro and Superman Ride of Steel (SFA).

 

Since all body types are different, it's hard to say, however, one person I know that couldn't ride Goliath at Six Flags Great America and Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City had no problem at on Cannibal.

 

Gotcha. I'll try to shed some lbs in the meantime until my visit, which may not be until the second week in August.

Overall, Lagoon is pretty Fatty Friendly with 2 Click Rules/On Board Monitoring Systems and Big Boy Chairs on Cliffhanger and Samurai. Air Race, Rocket, Cliffhanger, and Samurai can be a problem with the Class 4 and 5 Restraints.

I was really surprised by how many coasters I was able to fit on last year. They weren't always comfortable fits--cough..Lightning Run--but it was good to be able to ride. I'm sure I'll be good Lagoon but it's one of those things that always sticks in the back of my mind.

That is the Lagoon Roll.

Every time I hear that name, I think of sushi. I now want Lagoon to serve the "Lagoon Roll" sushi in one of their restaurants. Ugh, and now I just want sushi in general. "Lagoon Roll" sounds very tasty!

Not a Bad Idea for Lagoon to Cross Promote, kind of like the "Cannibal Dots" Dippin' Dots.

 

It's also a shame you guys didn't get a night ride.

The element is even similar in shape to a sushi roll. A little red sauce carefully placed and the element could be replicated on your plate.

 

it's not a bad combo.

Having tried it, I can't really agree with your opinion.
