The Roller Coaster is a wooden roller coaster located at Lagoon in Farmington, Utah, USA. It was designed by John A. Miller and opened in 1921, making it the sixth oldest roller coaster operating today.
When it opened in 1921, the Roller Coaster was the second coaster to be built at Lagoon.
In 2007, Roller Coaster became an ACE Coaster Landmark, due to being a 'classic coaster'. The park has also decided not to continue painting the Roller Coaster white; now using natural colored treated wood to replace older portions as needed, meaning it will turn brown as the wood is gradually replaced.
The ride has never really had a name other than simply "Roller Coaster". It is often called the "White Roller Coaster" by locals.
The ride begins with a turn out the station which leads to the lift hill. Guests reach heights of 60 feet before plummeting down the first drop and over a hill, then back up again into the west turn. A series of airtime hills follow, getting smaller as the velocity of the train drops. There are two more turns, then the train returns to the station.
