Design

Elements

Cannibal has a 208 foot tall elevator lift. The lift is followed by a drop from horizontal to an angle of 116°, curving into an underground tunnel, immediately followed by a large immelmann. The immelmann leads to a dive loop, then a large over-banked curve passing through the immelmann. 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.

Trains

Single cars. Riders are arranged 4 across in 3 rows, for a total of 12 riders per car. Riders are held in with lap bars.
