Reminiscing About Lagoon

I spent all of last week reminiscing about Lagoon, a Utah amusement park. The old photographs reminded me of how excited I was to go to Lagoon as a child. You can see the series here:

It’s strange for me to go to Lagoon as an adult and not see the Lagoon of my past. In most respects, the park is far better than it was when I was a child, but my eyes still see the ghosts of the past. I think to myself, “The slides used to be here. The fun house used to be there.” I can’t walk along the pathways without remembering the Lagoon of my youth.


  1. These are some great old photos of Lagoon. I run an unofficial Lagoon website where people can share and look through photos and information of old and new Lagoon attractions. Please let me know if you’d like to share yours. I know a lot of people would love to see them as these scenes seem pretty rare. I include photo credits for all photos and I could even add a link to your page if you like. Please email me. Thanks!
