An in-house design with an extreme layout is always going to be that extra bit thrilling the first time. You just can't anticipate how it's going to ride. That's worth a trip to Salt Lake City for me. Ok, well that and a gift shop brimming with eyeball soup, bone saws and dismembered corpses.

So, here is all of the information about Cannibal (with a few pictures taken by the respected media) that I have collected.

Tower Height: 208 Feet
Drop Angle: 116 Degrees
Track Length: 2,735 Feet
Ride Time: 2 ½ minutes
Maximum G Force: 4.2 G’s
Maximum Speed: 70 miles per hour
Three Inversions: Inverted Loop, Diving Loop, Uknown 3rd inversion (said to be one-of-a-kind)
Maximum Height Inversion: 140 Feet Tall
Underground Tunnel: 20 ft
Water Features

From simple addition and knowing the underground tunnel is the bottom of the drop, Cannibal's drop will be 228 ft. Not confirmed, however.

Onto the photos!

Tallest beyond vertical drop in the world?

In Utah?

I'll be damned.
You may think that the people you are conversing with on this board are real, but, in fact, they are all my alts.

Looks like it's just you and me.

You handsome stud ;)

It actually won't be. Hansa Park is building a beyond vertical drop at 235 (ish?) ft.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

The Lagoon and Hansa Projects are so ridiculously similar, to be building both in the same year by totally different groups.
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

I thought Hansa's new coaster would have a beyond vertical drop, but it's only saying vertical. I guess we do take a world record!

EDIT: I just updated my information post with some renderings of the ride and a clear view of the water feature. It doesn't show everything as they have a part they want to keep a surprise, but I noticed what is a barrel roll into another barrel roll rotating the other way. I have not seen any information on it, as nothing was released about this element, but it's interesting to say the least. Also, wouldn't it bring the inversion count to 4? I still don't see the 140 ft. "Inverted loop" which was released, and the dive loop is shown, so that's already two and these barrel rolls look to be two more inversions.

This is probably the most bizarre and unique coaster since Winjas. New style of track, new style of trains, crazy giant tower, secret to-be-revealed element (new inversion? elevator drop in the tower?)... I'm intrigued! Looks like a Utah 2015 trip is in order.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Does anyone else think that tower has the potential to be really hideous? The ride itself looks great but I hope they find a way to make that thing look relatively nice.

I guess the elevator section will spin sideways to make that secret inversion. That would be the first in the world, right?
