Design[edit]

Elements

Cannibal has a 208 feet tall elevator lift. The lift is followed by a drop from horizontal to an angle of 116 degrees, curving into an underground tunnel which is immediately followed by a large immelman loop. The immelman loop leads to a dive loop, then a large overbanked turn passing through the immelman loop. The track then makes a high left turn around the lift tower into a mid-course brake run, then left again into a barrel roll over a large constructed water feature (resembling a large rock outcropping with a spring leading over a series of waterfalls into a lake), rotating counterclockwise one and one-half times (ending upside-down), then rotating clockwise until riders are nearly right-side up once more. The ride finishes with a right turning helix that tunnels through the rock of the water feature, passing behind the waterfalls before the final brake run. The 116 degree beyond vertical first drop is the tallest one in the world and the fourth steepest in the world.
