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." Related
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.

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...
