FARMINGTON -- The skyline at Lagoon is dotted with several high-rise cranes. But park officials say it won't be until 2014, or perhaps even the 2015 season, that something "big" is to arrive.
"We are currently working on something big. But I don't know if it will be for the 2014 or 2015 season," Lagoon vice president of marketing Dick Andrew said.
As the attraction goes up, passersby will notice a difference in the park's skyline.
"It will be something big," said Andrew, who declined to reveal any more information about the project for which preliminary construction has begun.
Some of the cranes in the park are also being used to perform standard off-season dissembling and reassembling of rides as part of park maintenance, Andrew said.
There are no plans to take any of the rides out of the park.
But what the park will be doing for the 2013 season will be adding two new children's rides to expand Kiddieland, he said.
"That is what we will have new this year," Andrew said of the rides yet to be built or named, but which are expected to be in place for the park's spring opening.
"We have done a lot in that general area (of Kiddieland) for the last few years," he said. "I expect (the rides) will be well-received."
For the 2012 season, Lagoon once again topped the 1 million visitor mark, Andrew said, allowing it to have a "pretty level" year compared to other years.
But because of the warm autumn Utah experienced last year, he said, Frightmares, its annual Halloween event, did set an attendance best.
The Farmington amusement park, which regularly tops more than 1 million visitors a year, is considered Davis County's largest tourist attraction.
Lagoon is scheduled to open its 2013 season at 10 a.m. March 30.
