Canobie Lake Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Looks like they're doing a good job with the construction so far. I went over to Salem to check on the progress today. It looked like the Helice at the end of the ride was finished, to go along with the Lift Hill.

 

I did end up taking some pictures (Right next to the chain-link fence, not inside the park!), but I'm not really interested in posting them, because there was already a full video posted earlier in the thread, not to mention all the photos on Canobie's Facebook page.

More new pictures from thus past weekend have been posted on Canobie Lake's Facebook.

This is taking no time at all.

 

ADMIN EDIT: I went ahead and posted the photo so people won't have to jump to see it. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Man, it took months for them to prepare the site and get the station built, and then they put the ride up over a weekend? Must have really efficient connections.

 

Well... yeah. I remember hearing from somewhere that compact (I.E, Premade Layout) Eurofighters can be put up in as little as 3 days. Even the bigger ones, like Dare Devil Dive, can be put up in just a couple of weeks if the park knows what it's doing.

 

Anyway, always exciting when a park puts the final piece of track on a new roller coaster! Hopefully it won't take that long for the park to start testing this bad boy. I can hardly wait...

It took so long because the weather in NE is not favorable form November to March. The station is the big visual point for the coaster, so it was bound to take a while to build. The coast is also a models that can be operated in a portable format so it's intend to go up quickly.

 

here are some photos of untamed from opening day:

But why stop there? The Park has fireworks every Saturday night from July 2nd all the way through September 3rd, weather permitting.

Great news for all! I should be up by the Salem area this weekend, so I'll take a small trip around the outside of the park via the back roads and get a look at the completed coaster. I can only imagine what the views would be actually inside the park...

 

Oh, and a 75th Birfday Celebration for the Yankee Cannonball? That should be pretty good as well. Hopefully, there's some ERT to compliment the event.

^ Blatch - I did the drive around the back roads next to the park last weekend, and now with all the trees in bloom, it's not that easy to get that good of a look - you can see it, but unless you're gonna get out of the car and walk up to the border of the park you're gonna have a semi blocked view. You can see the coaster peeking out from behind the Cannonball's hill from the parking lot. The best way to see it is definitely from inside! Can't wait to ride it!

Wow, I cannot believe that this ride is finally testing! Those water dummies in the second image really floored me, they should be tearing up the track by now!

 

I also love the station. Hoepfully I can get a July-August trip there and ride the coaster, cause my mom bought pre-paid tickets for the family.
