CANOBIE LAKE PARK
Park News - (3/20/22) We heard the rumors and reports that the Canobie Corkscrew was going to be leaving all last year after sitting idle. Earlier this month a photo was posted to Reddit of the ride, showing that the coaster is indeed being taken down. From the look of things, the coaster is being cut apart for scrap instead of being taken down carefully, so this appears to be the end of the road for the old Arrow Corkscrew that ran at the park since 1987, but was originally built in 1975 for the short lived Old Chicago park (1975-1980).
It was previously speculated that the coaster would be retired to make way for a possible future expansion of the waterpark. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.
(9/7/21) According to a Screamscape source the Canobie Corkscrew is being retired. Given the coaster’s close location to the park’s Castaway Island waterpark play area, it is likely we will see the coaster site replaced with an expansion to the waterpark, as it often gets to capacity quite quickly.
(8/25/21) Anyone know what’s going on with the Canobie Corkscrew roller coaster? Earlier this month I had received a report claiming that the Corkscrew has been closed all summer with no updates from the Canobie Lake Park about the status of the coaster. Now I’m told that the Corkscrew has also been removed from the park’s map as well as the website.
For all intents and purposes, it appears that the Canobie Corkscrew may be closed for good. Can anyone confirm what’s going on and if the coaster is closed for good?
