LAGOON AMUSEMENT PARK
When they say, “it’s what fun is,” they’re not joking. Keep your hearts pounding and your faces smiling on over 50 rides. One of their newest rides, Cannibal, lifts riders 208 feet and plunges them into a 116° beyond-vertical free-fall into an underground tunnel, all at 70 mph. Slip and slide in Lagoon A Beach’s six-acre waterpark. Transport your crew back to the old west in their Pioneer Village. Lagoon Amusement Park will surely make everyone thrilled and amused.
