I have been checking in with RCDB regularly about this. It does look like a really great coaster and that first drop does look brilliant. Thanks for sharing those links Andy.

Strange trains being 4-4-3 wonder why they decided on that. Also this coaster seems to be in-house manufactured coaster which is pretty neat also.

Gotta say though although looks slow through some parts of the ride it looks smooth, hope its a success, rides well and speeds up a tiny bit.

I think one of the rear seats is yet to be installed.

Julie Freed, Lagoon's Director of Special Events, posted the following on Instagram regarding the removed seat on the back row of the Cannibal Test Train:
"One of the seat frames in the back row was temporarily removed in order to sculpt the padding. The padding manufacturer requested it and we were pleased to oblige. ALL Cannibal vehicles are configured with 3 rows of 4 individual seats."

Off ride footage of it doing the circuit with employees?! Loving the train picture on Twitter, really not a lot there, lovely open train design.

The trains look really open which must give a sense of freedom especially with the lapbars. Looks really good for an in-house coaster!
