Have you been out to ride Cannibal? Yep, it's open and word is that there are a bunch of roller coaster enthusiasts from all around the country making the journey to ride it.
This video created and filmed by one of them, Death By Illusion, is the best one I've seen so far. The front row point of view is as real as you can get without riding the actual ride. Note, the red bars with the warnings on them when the video starts have a close x on the top right side of each one.
Did you know this ride was actually fabricated in-house by Lagoon as opposed to being built by an outside manufacturer the ride was built by local companies. Cannibal has the fourth steepest drop in the world and the steepest in the United States! It's also the tallest beyond-vertical drop in the world. The way the track inverts at the top has been dubbed the "Lagoon Roll." I personally can't wait to give it a try. What about you?
