Good expectations. While the documentary is focused on the coasters the other rides are mentioned and a few rare pictures will be show as well. The designer/ builders of the coasters is a definite part of the documentary.

This wasn't the case as there were several resorts in the city limits of Salt Lake City having no connection to the lake that also met with disaster or ended up shutting down. One of them is now a Golf Course. Lagoon just had the best location as the modes of travel evolved.

Everyone knows about Waldmeer Park...it's the worst kept "secret," thanks BRADEN! lol

You're welcome?

Also, I think you mean Wandamere, not Waldmeer.

Majestic Park is the one I wrote about a few years ago.

And before it was called Wandamere it was called Calder's Park.

Interesting about Majestic Park. "a 300-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower" Pretty cool. Makes me think of Kings Island.

I've been looking for pictures of the Salt Palace's Scenic Railway but haven't found any yet. But I doubt any exist as it opened in 1906 and then Salt Palace burned in 1910 and it either was lost in the fire or torn down after that.

It would be pretty cool if some of these or all still existed.
