The Cannon Ball roller coaster is a wooden roller coaster.[1] It is at the Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park (or Lake Winnie) in Rossville, Georgia.[1] It was designed by John C. Allen.[2] The roller coaster opened in 1967.[2] It was Lake Winnie's first roller coaster.

It is one of three roller coasters at the park. The other two coasters are the Wild Lightnin' and the Wacky Worm.[3] Wild lightnin' is a steel roller coaster that goes over the lake. The Wacky Worm is a children's ride.[3] The Cannon Ball is the biggest of the three.
