Cannibal is a masterpiece. The first half is almost pure perfection in its combination of a great drop, and the line of elements afterward. The 2nd half is a little lack luster but better than Wicked's 2nd half lol. (I've got a good list now of ideas in a Cannibal: Remixed video)

Basically. It works like Intamin's hydraulic launch in that a catch car is used to accelerate the train up to speed but instead of being hydraulically powered its compressed air. S&S Holds the world record for fastest acceleration for Do-Dodonpa built in 2001. It goes from 0 to 111 mph in 1.6 seconds. That is insanely quick. Especially considering TTD takes 4 seconds to get up to 120 mph.

Its been a while since I've been to SFGAm it was a good park but their last few installations have made it much better in my opinion those additions being X Flight, Goliath and now Maxx Force.

Top Thrill Dragster is 3.2 Seconds, but the point stands. lol

With essentially the removal of the Mardi Gras/New Orleans section with the addition of Superman, Dark Knight Coaster, Joker, and installation of a Larson Superloop, I would agree.
