A lighthearted, nostalgic look at the rich history of Lagoon Amusement Park which has enchanted visitors for generations with its rides, rock concerts, and family fun.
What amusement park enthusiast Chadwick Greenhalgh likes most is the old rollercoaster. "If you were to ask most people what they think of the wooden rollercoaster at Lagoon, they think about two things – Number one, they think they're going to die. When you go around the turns, it makes you wonder for a minute if the car is going to come off the track. The second thing people remember is that first lift. They remember the sight of that big, thick chain and the 'clack' it makes when it finally connects onto the car and pulls it up ... You get to the top, and down you go! It's one of the greatest things."
The "White Rollercoaster," designed by John Miller of Coney Island fame and constructed in 1921, is probably the most recognizable symbol of Lagoon. It's also one of only a few remaining attractions from the park's early days, along with the hand-carved wooden carousel, built in 1893.
