Details

Facts:The Cannon Coaster used a Cannon Facade as part of the lift hill.  At the crest of the hill the car ran through the breech of the cannon and then out the end.  At the end of the cannon there was intended to be a gap in the tracks giving riders the feeling of being shot out of the cannon.  The gap was determined unsafe during testing and was removed before the ride opened.  False rumors of casualties during this gap testing actually increased the rides popularity.
