Farmington, UT (September 4, 2014): Lagoon unveiled plans to debut the most exciting roller coaster in the park’s history, Cannibal. According to Julie Freed, spokesperson for Lagoon, “We have named it Cannibal, because in our collective mind it will eat other roller coasters in their tracks!” Cannibal has been under construction for over two years and is set to open for the upcoming 2015 season. This steel roller coaster is one of a kind, and is primarily manufactured and constructed locally.

Cannibal will be the tallest attraction on the park with a height of 208 feet. This state of the art coaster will thrill riders with its unique elements unlike anything else at Lagoon. Riders will be lifted 208 feet on a vertical lift and then plunged into a free fall at a break-over angle of 116 degrees into an underground tunnel. The 12 rider vehicles travel up to 70 miles per hour through three inversions.  Cannibal will be the most exciting thrill ride in Lagoon history and is unlike anything else in the country.

So, no complete layout of the ride, and they are keeping a part of the ride a surprise? Why?????? I see no need for this as releasing the entire ride never hurt any park before the opening.

lol. I demand everything ALL AT ONCE..

Since the elevator lift is inside I bet that is the "exclusive thrill element."

I wonder if the "special element" is the beyond vertical DROP. I could be wrong but I didn't see it mentioned in the stats. Although if people are paying attention, the press is confirming the 116 degree angle as we speak. And 2 1/2 minutes for a ride is a long time. This will be awesome!

It's already announced as a vertical lift. The only thing not released of the ride is the rumored heart line roll, so that is most likely the surprise.



EDIT: Actually you can kinda make out part of the barrel roll in some of the photos, so it could be something else.

And I know that I am new but I hope that you amazing people will accept me. I have been following this forum since fall of 2013 and have been amazed with how spot-on you have been since the beginning. I already submitted a request on facebook that after the ride designers and Lagoon employees ride it, you guys (the ones who started this thread so many years ago) should be the first ones on. Can I go right after you guys if that is okay? Smile
