(Just North of Salt Lake City)
Park News - (8/9/17) While I'm not sure what it is for yet, it seems Lagoon has filed for a new trademark to use the name "Primordial" for a new ride they are planning. In particular the filing mentions it is for "an amusement park ride in the nature of Roller Coaster". Anyone know more? The latest coaster rumor I’d heard so far indicated a possible dark ride / coaster combo, which you can read about below. The name certainly would fit.
2018 - What’s New? - Rumor - (3/16/18) So what's new for 2018 at Lagoon? From the sound of things, it doesn't look like the upgrade / renovation to Dracula's Castle (see below) is going to happen in time for the 2018 season, so this may be held back as a 2019 addition. So what is going to be new then?
While nothing has been confirmed by the park yet, I’ve heard a rumor that the park may have obtained a set or two of GCI Millenium Flyer trains with the intention of putting them to use on the Roller Coaster, the park's only wooden coaster. Can anyone else confirm this? Generally, in order to make this work, the coaster would likely have to undergo a fairly complete re-tracking process over the off-season, so can anyone tell if this has happened at all? I don’t think GCI would certify their Flyers to run on it otherwise, as I believe they are a heavier train.
2019?? - Dracula’s Castle Upgrade - Rumor - (6/10/17) Rumor has it that Lagoon may perform some kind of upgrade to the park's other dark ride, Dracula's Castle, as early as 2018.
2020/2021 - Interactive Dark Ride/Coaster - Rumor - (6/10/17) Consider this a long-term rumor, but the early rumble is that Lagoon may be looking to add their own interactive dark coaster ride to the park sometime between 2020 and 2021. I'm told that they may be looking to the Wonder Mountain's Guardian attraction at Canada's Wonderland for inspiration for this one. Stay tuned...
