While there is a lot of speculation about the new roller coaster, including the name, here’s what we do know after a recent conversation with a Lagoon spokesperson, we can stop calling it Primordial because that will most likely not be the actual name. Lagoon has trademarked 4 other names to use for the ride, once it is finished they’ll choose the one that fits best. We also know that the ride is not as tall as Cannibal but covers a larger area of land. And most importantly, we know that the ride could be finished in time for the 2023 season. Not necessarily at the beginning of the season, but before the end of 2023, we could be riding the new coaster.
As far as speculation, the fan favorite now that more construction has been finalized and the bones of the ride can be seen, is that this will be an interactive roller coaster. Some think that there will be projection or digital screens inside the mountain where riders will use game guns to shoot at enemies or attackers shown on the screens. That makes the ride sound like a larger-than-life video game, which is fine by me.
