Sky Ride – Lagoon, UT

This Hopkins lift was added to Lagoon in 1974, when the park was already over a century old.
Tower 1 at the north end.
The auxiliary hydrostatic drive is located in the center of this photo.
Tower 2.
The lift gets quite high above ground.
A Sky Ride carrier.
Tower 5.
Starting down at T6.
Fixed return bullwheel at the south end.
Loading area at the return terminal.
I’m not sure this lift has a tensioning system, unless this entire setup is on rails that are covered up.
The drive system and a transformer.
View south from the drive terminal.
Tower 4 along the Midway.

    Thanks for putting this up, Peter. This ride and Lagoon brings back many wonderful memories when I was a boy and grew up there at the park and in Farmington.

    Do to it’s height and lack of vetical rise, it could operate with no tension. Like River Crossing at Big Sky.
