This should be a very interesting roller coaster, to say the least!

"Primarily constructed and manufactured locally". Sounds like it may be an S&S contraption.....super large version of Wild Hog?

I believe that the only major roller coaster manufacturer that the ride is / could be involved with is probably Maurer Sohne, because they helped the park somewhat with their last "in-house" coaster, Bombora, but in the end, the real manufacturer of the ride is Lagoon, itself. At most, Lagoon will only be receiving certain parts for the coaster from Maurer Sohne.

The designer of the ride, however, is Dal Freeman, former designer for the defunct Arrow Dynamics, of Clearfield UT.

Intermountain Lift is supplying the track. Lagoon themselves are the manufacturer.

This isn't your typical installation where a park simply contracts a manufacturer and they take care of it. Lagoon designed it and are essentially building it themselves. They did it with Bombora and Wicked (to an extent) before. This may be the largest roller coaster to be designed and built by a park.

See The Beast @ Kings Island. Tallest, perhaps, largest, perhaps not.

^ The Trains will be 3 Rows, with 4 Across, on only 4 Bogies, with an overhead lap bar. The Trains are Definitely NOT anything like those from Gerstlauer or Stakotra Manufacturing, since they are being Fabricated by ART Engineering GmbH, which supplied Trains for BomBora and Trains and Track and Column Engineering for Wonder Mountain's Guardian. The Vertical Lift will be a Vertical Elevator Lift like Intamin used on Pilgrims Plunge and Divertical. The 116 Degree Beyond Vertical Drop will be outside the Tower. There are Renderings we got from Lagoon over on LagoonisFun.com.

That building almost looks too narrow for a vertical lift. Judging by the radius of the crest of the first drop, the lift probably has small radii as it curves up and back to level. I'm guessing the trim brake is there so the negative g forces don't get too uncomfortable. I'm curious to see the rest of the layout they have planned.

I also agree on the design of the tower being rather hard on the eyes.

Yeah, if that is the finished product (strictly speaking of the tower) then I'm sticking with hideous.

The siding Lagoon used on the Tower actually has a Wood Grain Faux Finish on it.

Too narrow for a vertical lift?

This coaster looks like it'll be a lot of fun, though I don't think it'd be anything more thrilling than other coasters aside from the huge drop. Not a BAD thing ;)

Cannibal has a Dual Elevator Lift just like Pilgrim's Plunge did and Divertical has.
