“Great regional amusement park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

Lagoon is the only amusement park for hours in any direction. They have some great rollercoasters. Collosus has double loops, the white rollercoaster is a classic wooden coaster, the wild mouse is good, Wicked has lots of speed and a 110 foot straight up, the Spider spins around while you go on the curves, you better hold your neck firm on Jet Star or you'll get whiplash and the Bat is a gentler hanging coaster. There are all the basic amusement park rides like a swinging ship, space scrambler, flying aces, bumper cars, log flume, rattlesnake rapids, a rocket tower, things that go fast and a good kiddie land. They also have a decent water park called Laguna Beach and also Pioneer village, with a collection of businesses and homes from the time of the pioneers. It doesn't have the theming of Disneyland, but for an amusement park, it does a great job.

Rivals some of the parks in California. Better ambience.

“Great if you are a teenager”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

This amusement park is geared toward one demographic, and a narrow one at that. If you are between the ages of 12-17 you most likely have a good time, if you are not in that age range it is not worth the time or money.

“Kind of like a big carnival”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

They have made some improvements in recent years to this amusement park, but for the most part it's just a glorified carnival. You pay an admissions price, and some of the rides still cost more once you get inside (the ticket price is something like $40/day, and then you have to pay an additional $12-$20/person to ride some of the rides once you are inside). Most of the new roller coasters are short and not very exciting; the old ones are rickety and feel like they may give out anytime. Unless you can find a cheap discounted ticket price, I wouldn't recommend this place.
