1982 Lagoon Amusement Park Arcade Home Movie!

I’ve never had the chance to visit the Lagoon Amusement Park in Utah but I do hear that the legendary Nolan Bushnell worked at the park while he was in high-school and college. That alone would be enough to make a road trip…but I don’t think if we went these day we would find an awesome arcade like in Mr. Jossit’s Home Movie from 1982 waiting for us.

“Me watching my younger brother Greg playing Pac-Man in the Lagoon Arcade 1982. This is supposedly the same arcade that Nolan Bushnell worked at when he was inspired to get into arcade machines.”
