The Salt Lake Tribune released an article focusing on 5 things to know about opening weekend. I think the article should have been titled similarly to what I titled this topic because some of the things mentioned don't even happen opening weekend. You can read the full article here: http://www.sltrib.com/home/2336714-155/is-it-summer-yet-5-things
Here is a breakdown of their list:
1. Cannibal will not be open this weekend. We knew this, but it's nice to finally see some confirmation coming out from Lagoon. Sadly, no set date on when the coaster will be open.
2. Honolulu hot dogs will be the new food at Lagoon this year. I'm wondering if this will replace Coaster Dogs over by Roller Coaster. Guess we'll find out. According to the article, Lagoon will be the only park in the country that will serve them.
3. The part of the article that got me super excited was to hear Cirque Innosta will be back again!
Quote:A new circus-like show will be performed throughout the season as a collaboration with the performing group Cirque Innosta. The show will have dance and song, plus acrobatics all set to music of the Beatles. There's also a one-man show traveling throughout the park with a "snake oil salesman who is trying to get it to rain," Leishman said. "It rains every time."
4. This one made me laugh: Lagoon-A-Beach. Why? I mean we know it's there. It's there every year.
5. 20th year for Frightmares. Something we started to discuss last fall, but I was glad to see they mentioned something special in the works to celebrate 20 years.
2015 is a big year for Lagoon with the upcoming debut of Cannibal, and I think it is appropriate that Lagoon Is Fun debut something awesome as well. JordanM has been hard at work crafting a new look for the forum, and I wanted to debut it just in time for Lagoon to open tomorrow.
The new look isn't the only big difference. The forum software also received a big upgrade bringing a bunch of new features that will improve the forum experience. I'm excited to see this all come together just in time for opening day. However, work is ongoing. I suspect there may be some issues with the new theme, so we need your help. If you encounter a bug with the new theme, Jordan has set up a bug reporting form. This is the best way to let us know if there are issues.
