Translated the name means Cannon and that is certainly appropriate for this hydrualic launched coaster. This Intamin "Rocket Coaster" accelerates the trains from zero to 46.6 mph in just 3 seconds. From there thrill-seekers are sent up and over the 79-foot tall "Top Hat" element and upside down twice via a vertical loop and zero-G roll. Overall, Kanonen is a short roller coaster at 1,444 feet end-to-end and a ride time of just 50 seconds.
