There are a lot of images here - just a warning to those with slower connections! And unfortunately I'm no photographer, so most of the images kind of suck.
Not only does Utah have terrible air quality, it's also not a very good place for theme park enthusiasts. Regardless, we do have one wonderful gem here, and that is the Lagoon!
I decided to embark on this trip because I haven't been to a theme park in an insanely long amount of time. Finances and a stressful, time-consuming college major have made that difficult. The last park I had been to was over a year ago...also the Lagoon. Before that, I had gone to Six Flags Magic Mountain. I love SFMM, but I was chaperoning a youth group at my church, and none of them really liked roller coasters. They only came because the trip was free (a guy had won the tickets in a radio competition). So we had to leave after just a few hours, right when I was in line for Batman the Ride. I think all I rode with the amount of time we had was Goliath, Superman, and X2. Not cool!
This ended up being a solo trip. I hang out mostly with programmers and animators due to my course of study, and apparently that particular brand of nerd doesn't have much of an affinity for theme parks, because I couldn't find anyone who wanted to go. I'm also not the most extroverted person in the world, so there's that too. My brother was considering coming, but after the doctor told him his running injury had originated in his back, he realized that it would be a bad idea.
On the bright side, that meant that I was in full control of my day, which means staying for much longer than what most people like to do. I.e., opening until closing! I also found a promotional code via KUTV that got me $20 off, so that was nice.
Also, I apologize in advance for TPR's sly little insertion of a pseudonym for a certain word that starts with L.
Anyway, enough of the talking and onto the photos! When I report on trips, I like to structure it like a narrative, which means that I started with some photos from my walk along the Lagoon trail. So feel free to skip down to the actual ride photos.
All in all, this was an excellent trip, and I will definitely be coming back! Thanks for reading if you actually got this far! ;D
