FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- "Wicked," a new $10 million rollercoaster, won't be ready when a popular northern Utah amusement park opens Saturday.

The German-made rollercoaster will be Lagoon's fastest ride, but some parts need to be retooled.

"We ran into some manufacturing problems," said Dick Andrew, the park's vice president of marketing.

The rollercoaster will have a dark tunnel filled with mist, a 110-foot tower and a maximum speed of 55 mph. It could open in June, Andrew said.
