It's been ages since I've been to Canobie and can't wait to visit again in 2011. This looks like a great ride and a perfect addition to a beautiful park. The Yankee Canonball was my first coaster, so I can't slam it, but it isn't Bizzaro (no doubt).
Not sure if it's my eyes that are deceiving me, but what is an overbanked turn on Rage looks to be an uninverted top hat on this one. Not sure if its just concept art being concept art, but thought I should just point that out...

I hadn't really noticed that, but I'm PRETTY positive it's an exact clone of Rage, so all the elements should be the same.
That's great though, because like so many other clones, it does the job well. It's small, yet tall enough to thrill; compact, yet it packs in several sweet elements. Paying to engineer completely new track designs is quite expensive, I'm sure.
Drove by the park today - I live 15 min. down the road and was out xmas shopping, so I figured I'd do a drive-by and see if I could see anything fun/take pics.
Looked at the front of the park/parking lot and drove down some side roads to see the back of the park where the new coaster is going, but unfortunately didn't spot anything exciting like track pieces... the land is definitely getting good and cleared out though and cranes are on location. Wonder if they will wait for warmer weather to really get going?
Can't wait for this! Canobie definitely deserves another great ride!

The station for Untamed is being built and construction is coming along. I love how Canobie Lake just said "Hey, lets get a roller coaster for next year," late last year and it's already being constructed.
