Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Canobie Lake Park, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Ok, this has to be one of the weirdest stories EVER!

 

Someone in New Hampshire has kidnapped a Pillsbury Doughboy statue from a local grocery store and is sending ransom notes along with photos. One of the photos was a picture of the Doughboy in front of the gates of CANOBIE LAKE PARK!!!!

 

WTF?!?!

 

Watch this video here:

I heard this on the radio earlier.

 

There have also been pix of him applying for work at a few franchises like BK and Wendys...

 

And so far - no 'dough' has been demanded for his return, nyuk nyuk.

Saw this on the news last night and lets just say its probably the funniest thing I have heard all day. That doughboy... so awesome.

 

Although the grocery store it was at is closing this weekend says the news.

^ Is it closing because it no longer has it's Doughboy?! Has the ransom bankrupted it?!

 

I'm not so sure about Robb having too much free time, but the person who's pulling this prank DEFINITELY does. Pointless but hilarious.

I am quite curious now....

Is PDB now an official member of ACE? Does he/she contribute to TPR artricles?

 

and most importantly......DID PDB get a COASTER CREDIT???!

Paul?

 

How'd you know?

 

It was a long planned revenge plot after I was forced to dress up as the PDB years ago while working at a grocery store.

Paul, you should DEFINITELY wear that getup to PCW. I wonder if they would let you wear the head on Minebuster?

 

(I obviously know you don't HAVE the costume. Just in case you're tempted to say "Well, technically, ________.")

lol you read my mind.

 

It wasn't exactly fun wearing that thing. It barely fit, the head weighed like 40 pounds, and I was sweating buckets. Plus all the kids running up and poking me. I refused to do the giggle though. for $6/hour that's all they were going to get out of me.

lol I can actually remember this girl poking me. When I didn't giggle she went "Aren't you supposed to giggle?". I just replied "Yeah, well what are you going to do about it?". Then I wandered off trying not to knock over any shelves of stock(I could barely see where I was going).

Canobie has started ground work for the new Frisbee ride. The ride will go where Skater had been last year... And where RockinRider was.

 

Ground work on the old Rockin Rider / Skater area.
