Specific Type: Steel Looping
Cannibal at Lagoon Amusement park is a one of a kind roller coaster. Unlike most coasters that are bought from and deigned by outside company, Cannibal was designed and built in house by Dal Freeman at an estimated cost of $22 million. The coaster took 5 years to become a reality, being debuted in the 2015 season. The park says it came up with the name because they think the coaster will eat other rides alive. The ride will reach speeds of 70 mph while covering 2,735 ft of track.
As of the time this article was written, the park had added stone lions, rhinos, and elephants. These go with themed tunnels in the middle of the ride course. The park has covered another themed part of the ride with a tarp, keeping its contents under wraps for now. The trains, which feature lapbar restraints, will have 3 rows of 4 seats across for a total of 12 per train.
The coaster will exit out of the station and turn to the right and enter the elevator lift. Once reaching the top at 208 ft, riders will experience a first drop of a beyond vertical 116 degrees. The drop will take the ride through a themed tunnel, then after exiting, an incline into an Immelmann Loop. Next, riders speeds through a dive loop. Riders will then experience an airtime hill before a series of overbanked turns before hitting a trim brake and a turn to the left around the elevator shaft leading to an inline twist then a stall and a twist in the opposite direction. Finally, the ride turns left then through a helix that takes riders through over a waterfall & through another themed tunnel before hitting the final brake run.
