Those roll-backs really can't be safe! I can't believe that there was a roll-back on such a small hill on Kanonen! Intamin really need to sort out there launch coasters! :shock: Has anything like this ever happened on Velocity :?:

The rollbacks are 100% perfectly safe. Brake fins come up straight after launch, ensuring that no collission occurs, there's no danger whatsoever when such a rollback occurs and they're kinda seen as a bit of a holy grail amongst enthusiasts since they're fairly rare :P.

Kanonen has a very small but steep first incline, resulting in the speed of the train being killed very very quickly.

There's a huge hydraulic pressure required for every launch and even the slightest difference with it can affect a successful launch.
