Lagoon Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

That is the Lagoon Roll.

Every time I hear that name, I think of sushi. I now want Lagoon to serve the "Lagoon Roll" sushi in one of their restaurants. Ugh, and now I just want sushi in general. "Lagoon Roll" sounds very tasty!

 

How does the lagoon roll ride? It looks like it has a lot of potential to be awkward. If possible rate using sushi terminology. Great footage, thanks!

Was there a reason for so much side to side wobbling in the POV? I didn't know if the car rocked side to side that much of if that was just how the camera was rigged.

We had to use a chest mount, so it wasn't the smoothest video we were able to shoot, but regardless, I don't think it rocked "so much" either. I think we are just spoiling people with our normally rock-solid mounting to trains!

Awesome video! The view when the door opens at the top of the tower looks quite spectacular, with the track just dissappearing over the edge.

 

Overall looks like a solid ride that has really put Lagoon on the map for any coaster enthusiast!

I had the exact same thought about the sushi before I rode it!

 

All I can say is the element is one of those "Thank you restraint for saving my life!" moments.

Agreed, I guess we're all used to your train mounted vids. The only reason I asked was because much of the design was done in-house and you always wonder about how well rides, especially coasters, will track in that situation. Obviously Dal Freeman has experience designing coasters, but I was just wondering how well the ride experience turned out in this case. It appears to be done properly, and Freeman as well as Lagoon are to be commended for what looks like a great addition.

Dal Freeman and Dustin Allen are Engineers as well, so Lagoon did the exact same thing MACK and Disney does, as well as any Ride Manufacturer. Also, with ART Engineering GmbH cleaning things up and Dal Designing and Engineering Wicked and BomBora, with Dustin Allen, there was nothing to worry about in that respect. I LOVE, that Cannibal, and BomBora, can never be Duplicated and Copied by another Park as well.

Cannibal is a great ride. I was able to thank Dal Freeman the other night after getting my 2nd ride in. He was showing his family the ride controls. Shook his hand and talked a little with him. He was very humble about his achievement. He said it would be his last ride. What a way to go out on top!

Awesome video! I can feel the forcefulness from the screen!

 

Looks like the car slows down quite a lot at the MCBR, is it very noticeable?

 

It's not a very abrupt slowdown - but it is noticeable. Not like SFMM's Goliath. But as someone else, you don't want to go through the Lagoon roll too fast. The speed going through the Roll is perfect.

It does! I used it when I was there last week. Unfortunately, it was filled with groups of teenagers rather than single riders.

As a Single Rider, you are just there to fill a seat, so the Single Rider Line may not save that much time. I'm sure those kids were quite happy about being split up.

Awesome! Thanks for the news! The single rider line on Wicked saved a ton of time for us last year. I've gotta drive 6 hours up to SLC to get to the park tomorrow. I was worried about getting there for opening to get on before a long line hits but now I'm in no rush. Thanks again!

If you can, Ride Cannibal After Dark!
