Lagoon was honored at the Amusement Today’s 2015 Golden Ticket Awards ceremony held at Luna Park in Coney Island, New York, on September 12. Lagoon received the Publisher’s Pick Golden Ticket Award for 2015 Park of the Year.

This award was personally chosen by Gary Slade, publisher and editor-in-chief of Amusement Today. Julie Freed, director of special events at Lagoon, accepted the award.
