Top Theme Park Attractions: The 12 Oldest Rollercoasters In America


Lagoon Roller Coaster – 1921
Lagoon, Farmington, Utah

Lagoon park in Utah first opened in 1886 and this gem was erected and opened to the public 35 year later. It might not be the most original of names, but the generically-named Roller Coaster does offer a classic wood coaster layout and reaches a top speed of 45 MPH (72 KPH). It isn’t exactly scary but it does offer some decent air time and excitement.
