Definitely sounds like an interesting and unique project.

Looking forward to watching this one being built!

A zookeeper at a Utah amusement park was hospitalized after being gored in the leg by a wildebeest on Sunday.

Paramedics responded to a report of a goring at the Lagoon amusement park in Farmington, about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City, Davis County sheriff's Sergeant Susan Poulsen said.

Farmington Fire Chief Guido Smith said responders found a 28-year-old female employee who had been gored during a feeding process, when she 'came in contact with the animal's horn.'

The woman suffered an injury to her thigh and was transported to a Salt Lake City trauma center, where she was in serious but stable condition, he said. He described the injury as a laceration. Smith had no further details about how the injury happened but said the wildebeest was in its pen at the time, and there was 'no evidence of anything out of control.'

Wildebeests are hooved mammals with ox-like heads and horse-like manes.

Lagoon amusement park spokesman Adam Leishman confirmed that the zookeeper was hospitalized but said he had no information about what led to the injury. He said the park keeps a number of exotic cats, bison, deer, warthogs and other animals.

Lagoon park also features rides, live entertainment and an Old West-themed village, according to its website.

Earlier this year, a protest against Lagoon was staged by animal rights activists who claimed that the living conditions of the park's 80 animals were poor and unfit for wild animals.

Poulsen said Utah Occupational Safety and Health officials were looking into the workplace accident. Utah's No. 2 labor official, Jaceson Maughan, declined to provide any additional details.

This looks like a really cool project!
I will enjoy following this, and can't wait for vertical construction to start.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

5 to 6 trains and only 2000+ feet of track? Kinda short for that many trains. Unless it were some sort of hybrid wild mouse. On the other hand, 2000+ feet could be 4000 or more. So, seems like very ambiguous figures to me. :?r

They could be 8 seater cars if you think about it.

The Track Length and Height hasn't exactly been confirmed, but it will be Lagoon's Longest, Tallest, and Fastest Roller Coaster. Wicked has 6 Trains but only uses 5 at a time and loads two trains at a time. Cannibal's Trains will be very similar to Wickeds, but may have a 3rd Row to carry 12 persons instead of 8.

Not sure how I feel about a 200ft+ elevator lift. Hope it is reliable! The stats of the ride are definitely intriguing though…guess I will save a visit to Lagoon until this opens now!

How many people can say they've been gored by a Wildebeest? :lol:

Also, I can't wait to see more released about this ride.
