Cannibal is honestly not big of a rollercoaster, it's a compact footprint and compact.  It's a big coaster for lagoon, but not huge compared to like cedar point.

True not big in land usage size as like most of Lagoons rides built in a square plots. Cannibal is still a big coaster, just a compact footprint.

A world class ride like Cannibal is HUGE at any park. Cedar Point would be lucky to have such a ride.

Apparently are investing 40$ mil into the north end, including. He had seen the blueprints and it included a new enterence. He also saw the blueprints for Primordial and it was supposed to be bigger than cannibal.
In case anyone was wondering....THIS is along the lines of what I have heard from multiple sources and 1stRainbowRose has earned her stripes, so I believe her.

The plot of land for the Ride Building is HUGE! I've heard before that $40 Million is the joke "cost" of Cannibal. lol $40 Million would be what one would expect with a new Ride Building, Ride, Park Entrance Relocation, Park Offices, and Auto Gate/Parking Lot realignment.

I think until we actually see blue prints of the new ride almost all the sources we hear information is hearsay. A lot of the people giving out info are just regular employees, so unless u hear it from someone like in maintainai nce associated with building the ride I would take it as a rumour.

I highly doubt we'll ever see any blue prints, but what I know and what you've heard must be different.

The only blue prints I have ever seen of a new ride was Terroride when it was being redone. Every other ride was kept a huge secret.

That sounds pretty sweet. Seems like the park might be aiming to make it the signature ride if it's also the entrance. I've been thinking for a long time they should build a dark-ride that crafts Lagoon's various characters into a story. Perhaps it won't be so much about dinosaurs and more about dragons, dragonflies, whales, ladybugs and so on.
I like dark rides

Lagoon has been discussing moving the entrance to the north side for at least 20 years that I'm aware of. I remember being told about it when I worked there in 1998. It will be interesting to finally see if it happens after all these years. If you think about it, Cannibal's waterfall design was done in a way that plans for people to see it before entering the park via a north entrance.

Yes I also believe that is part of their master plan. I found it strange after seeing the waterfall for the first time that it would not be accessible from inside the park.
