FARMINGTON,Utah -- Lagoon will be offering something completely different this summer.
Cirque Innosta in Bosque, a New York and Colorado-based group, will provide daily performances at Lagoon from June 30 through Aug. 16 in the Davis Pavilion.
This show, combining high-end acrobatic skills, comedy, spectacular visuals and a driving sound track, will be included in the single-day and season passport, Lagoon vice president of marketing Dick Andrew said.
"That is what is new this year," Andrew told the Standard-Examiner. He said this year there will be no new ride opening.
The show will be performed in the enclosed Davis Pavilion, with bleacher seating to be brought in, Andrew said.
Lagoon hosted a similar circus act in 2011, which was warmly received by the public, Andrew said.
The park went with the live entertainment act based on past success it has had with the acts, he said.
The park does have a big construction project taking place that is to make its debut during the 2015 season, Andrew said. Lagoon officials are tight-lipped on the project, Andrew said, but it "will be increasingly evident as the days go by."
Lagoon opens weekends beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 29, weather permitting. The park opens daily beginning June 2.
Lagoon boasts more than 50 rides, Lagoon-A-Beach water park, historic Pioneer Village, along with games, food and gifts.
Single day passport prices for 2014 are: $47.95 plus tax for those 48 inches tall to 65 years old; $42.95 plus tax for senior citizens; and $35.95 plus tax for youth under 48 inches tall, according to the park website. For more information visit www.lagoonpark.com.
