CANOBIE LAKE PARK
Park News - (7/30/12) I’ve been told that Canobie has been repainting their corkscrew coaster this season, and is building a new haunt for Halloween outside the waterpark called Terror of the Corn.
(3/6/12) According to Canobie reps who visited the coaster con over last weekend, they hinted that they have plans for Corkscrew in their 5 year plan. Not sure if that meant removal of Corkscrew or some kind of modification, but I’d guess on removal. Matching up with rumors from years past, the park is still said to be very interested in getting a wooden coaster in the future. And so far, they have no final plans for a new ride in 2012… yet.
Fall 2012 - Equinox - (9/24/12) A reader visiting Canobie Lake reports in that the new Equinox ride can be seen sitting in the employee parking lot, and the ride platform and queue are already set up and ready for it. If all goes well, maybe they’ll have it up and running by next weekend.
(9/18/12) The new Equinox ride has been approved by the local government with a unanimous vote.
(9/13/12) The local news reports that the new Equinox ride proposed for Canobie would replace the Matterhorn ride that was retired back in 2008. The park is awiting final approval to install the ride, but hopes to have it open before the end of October when they close for the winter. Currently Equinox, a traveling ride model, is in London but will be shipped to Canobie in a couple of weeks.
(8/31/12) Equinox at Canobie will be staying for the 2013 season according to a reader who contacted the park.
(8/28/12) A couple of readers visiting the park earlier today sent in pictures of Canobie’s new ride teaser. It appears to be a KMG Tango, or something very similar, called Equinox and it says, “Taking Flight This Fall.” So looks like they are going to somehow add this in just in time for Halloween, which makes me think that this could simply be a portable ride brought in just for the fall season.
(8/27/12) Canobie Lake is said to have been teasing guests in the park through announcements and a teaser banner about adding some kind of new attraction for 2013. Anyone know more about what’s going on?
