The Oldest Amusement Park In The West Is Right Here In Utah And It’s Amazing

Utah only has one amusement park, and it’s been around for a long time. In fact, Lagoon is the eighth oldest continuously operating amusement park in the entire country! It’s also the oldest park in the West.

Most Utahns have childhood memories of Lagoon. Whether you remember getting sick on your first Colossus ride, or getting in trouble for begging to stay in the Fun House just a little longer…Lagoon is definitely nostalgic for most of us.

Take a look at this footage of Lagoon through the years. It was posted on YouTube.com by In the Loop.
