A few weeks ago, we visited Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, UT to attend the 2023 ACE Fall Conference. During this two day event, we got the chance to attend our first Frightmares event and get a few rides on the just opened Primordial dark ride / roller coaster.
Primordial has been in the works since right after Cannibal opened in 2015. The attraction was designed in house with the help of outside vendors including ART Engineering, Triotech and Intermountain Lift. At a glance, the ride is a next-generation version of Wonder Mountain's Guardian at Canada's Wonderland, but in truth is much more than that. The attraction features roller coaster and dark ride shooting segments. Riders wear 3-D glasses while on board. The ride distinguishes itself through the fact it has at least 6 different endings. Primordial is unlike any attraction in Lagoon, and really the western US.
Follow along as we provide our impressions of Primordial as well as the Frightmares event in general.
