Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

Cannibal has a 208 feet tall elevator lift. The lift is followed by a drop from horizontal to an angle of 116°, curving into an underground tunnel, which is immediately followed by a large Immelman. The Immelman leads to a dive loop, then a large over-banked curve passing through the Immelman. The track then makes a high left turn around the lift tower into a mid-course brake run, then left again into a Lagoon 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° beyond vertical first drop is the tallest one in the world and the fourth steepest in the world.

Trains[edit | edit source]
