Farmington, Utah

Lagoon is a family oriented amusement park in Farmington, Utah located 17 miles north of Salt Lake City and south of Provo.

Dating back to 1886, Lagoon began on the shores of the Great Salt Lake until it was relocated to its current location 1896. The park offers a peek into the past with its collection of classic amusement rides, along with many modern ones of today.

The park has a lineup of 45 rides and attractions, plus the included Lagoon A Beach waterpark.

One of the most popular attractions at Lagoon is the Roller Coaster that has been providing thrills for nearly 90 years. Designed by John Miller, this classic "out and back" wooden coaster offers a minute-and-half of thrills starting with a six-story first drop.

Nine additional roller coasters can be ridden here including the state-of-the-art, launched Wicked coaster, Colossus The Fire Dragon looping coaster and a spinning thriller called Spider. The park even has a classic Schwarzkopf Jet Star 2 roller coaster still in operation.

Lagoon's main midway includes a fantastic, overhead Sky Ride spanning the full length. The park's restored, historic Carousel was built by Herschell-Spillman in 1893 and has been spinning at the park for more than 100 years.

Other popular rides found here are the Rattlesnake Rapids white water rafting ride, Log Flume, The Rocket space shot drop tower and the Sky Scraper giant wheel. The park also has a collection of classic rides like a Paratropper, Rock-O-Plane, Wave Swinger and two classic scary dark rides.

Other attractions found at Lagoon are the Pioneer Village, a recreation of an Old West frontier community with 42 buildings you can stroll through, admire artifacts, shop for gifts and enjoy frontier treats.

Lagoon A Beach is the included six-acre waterpark that was added to the park in 1989. The waterpark offers hundreds of gallons of splashing fun with waterslides, a lazy river you can float and two water activity pools.

For those who wish to enjoy the park for more than a day, Lagoon has an on-site RV park for overnight campers.
