Bye bye equinox.

I was talking to Ryan DeMaria and he told me that equinox was not looking good, don't expect the ride to reopen. Ever.

Canobie Lake Park's newest ride shutting down for 'foreseeable future'
Spokesman says safety has not been issue
Published 8:25 AM EDT Jul 30, 2014

SALEM, N.H. —A New Hampshire amusement park has shut down its newest ride "for the foreseeable future."

The popular twisting, twirling Equinox is closed at Canobie Lake Park in Salem.

Spokesman Chris Nicoli tells the Eagle Tribune says the ride's operation has been sporadic. He said safety has not been issue, and there has not been any one specific cause for the lack of its regular operation.

Employees said numerous problems have left the ride inoperable, less than two years after it opened.

The ride has three mechanical arms that lift participants 75 feet up into the sky, spinning and swinging.

Didn't know any "Tangos" were actually purchased for permanent installations. They have a Tango at the OC Fair in So Cali and it is a very good looking ride especially at night with the light packages that KMG installs. The issue is they are EXTREMELY uncomfortable and awkward to ride.

I've ridden a Tango (not at Canobie) a couple of times and thought it was a terrible ride. It's got height going for it and it looks great, but I agree, not a good experience for its passengers. Fun to look at, not fun to ride.

Hi everyone,

I thought I'd share this.

I don't know how to upload pictures, but if someone can teach me how that'd be great. :)

I have pictures of a Corkscrew marking. There are apparently 4 around there. My friend took it.

BTW, Canobie is my home park, I live relatively close to it, 35 minutes.

Yankee Cannonball was my first coaster and remains in my top 5 to this day. :b

When you click "Post Reply," underneath the white box where you write your message is the options tab which lets you upload photos. Just pick the file from your computer and give it a caption. If you want to add more photos, you just keep hitting "Add the file" and a new field is created.

Canobie purchased their tango used from a carnival so it wasn't a park model.

Tango has been operating with no issues for RCS for awhile now. KMG rides are pretty reliable for flat rides. I actually enjoy the tango, since I'm more of a flipping person than spinning when it comes to flats.

I suspect there is something wrong with the ride that requires an expensive fix they can't afford at the moment...
