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.

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).
