Cannibal features the steepest drop in the United States. The roller coaster opened this year on July 2 at Lagoon in Farmington, Utah. The roller coaster took more than 5 years to plan out and about 2 years to build.
Cannibal broke a record for the tallest beyond-vertical drop in the world, at an angle of 116 degrees and a height of 208 feet. The coaster is the tallest and longest ride in the state of Utah.
Something interesting I noticed about this roller coaster is an elevator lift used for the beginning of the ride to reach the top of the beyond-vertical drop. A couple other cool features of the ride are a tunnel that goes 20 feet underground and an Immelmann turn inversion. You might be wondering what the heck an Immelmann turn is, this is a loop with a twist in it, the name comes from a maneuver used by planes after an attack to reposition for another attack during World War 1.
