Equinox - AKA Tango - AKA Flipping-around-while-your-privates-are-squashed-into-oblivion 3000.

Hopefully it runs a decent program.

There's a KMG Tango that shows up at my local fair every year. I consider it the most evil flat ride in existence. Yes, it is a great ride, but it is just so uncomfortable I've only ridden twice. You're basically being flung around by your crotch, and the restraints are more to keep you from flying off than to hold you securely in one place. It should be a great ride for Canobie Lake Park, as it gives them a high thrill attraction with a small footprint. I just don't know how much repeat ridership it will recieve.

Here's a video I found of the one at my local fair. Every year, they have a sign out front reading "This ride's computer-controlled movements are so unique that they are patented." I don't know if it's true or not, but I certainly think this must be one of the most intense flat rides out there.

Canobie is pretty cool about running good programs, so I'm not too worried about that.

I love donkeys more than me.

Cool looking flat that I wasn't familiar with until now. Looks like a pretty solid addition.

The Tango is one of my favorite flats. One of the most disorienting rides around IMO.

Maybe the way the seat assemblies flip is patented. KMG isn't the only manufacturer that uses a big arm with a rotating upper section and a rotating star-shape assembly attached to it. Zamperla uses the same kind of thing for their Power Surge and Shocker rides, though the seat assemblies on those rides flip freely (Power Surge side to side, Shocker forward and backward).

What a vile looking contraption...despite the nausea I'm not doubt going to feel, it still looks like a fun ride, even if your boys get beat up...

Stand up floorless drop tower or a Tango? Doesn't sound too comfortable but it does look awesome! Maybe riding is mandatory for participating in a sing along version of the MJ Tribute Show? ;)

A pretty good fit for Canobie.
