This is a great thing for Canobie! I live very close to the park and have been going there forever. It's still one of my favorite parks. I went this past Labor Day weekend and thought the park could really use something else at this point. The Cannonball is still so much fun, but the Corkscrew is definitely showing it's age - even more than usual. I know it's a family park, but it's just screaming for a new coaster. This is going to be a perfect fit and I'm excited that they are finally giving the park some much deserved coaster love!
Top 5 Steel: Bizarro (SFNE), Top Thrill (CP), i305 (KD), Kumba (BGT), Cali. Screamin' (DCA)
Top 5 Wood: El Toro (SFGAdv), Boulder Dash (Lake Compounce), Lightning Racer (Hershey), Beast (KI), Yankee Cannonball (Canobie Lake)
Total Credits: 141

It is small compared to many models. But it should seem build in an empty field towering next to one of Canobies classic buildings.

^It's still bigger than Spongebob at MOA. Rgae at Adventure Island looks fun, so I'm sure this will be too.

Once again, another Euro Fighter! These really do seem to be the "stylish" coasters for parks to build these days. I guess it does fit the bill for a lot of smaller parks: lots of thrills and twisty bits, (possibly) crammed into a small area, and packs a punch. Can't wait to ride one.

True it is bigger then Sponge Bob. which will help in its draw.

let1gre - While it is a popular coaster, which is the case with the company right now. The coaster wills till be extremely unique. depending on opening day (expected for May) it will be the 3rd to 4th to open in North America.

update:
the approval has been postponed pending a traffic study!

Can I park my donkey here?

I'll Second this motion.

I'm sure canobie has a non compete claws which is why they are getting a used mouse instead of the Euro fighter they disused a few years back.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Canobie Lake Park has announced "Untamed" for 2011, if you're a fan of Ride Entertainment Group on facebook they posted a picture of the banner that says "Coming in 2011... Untamed" In the background there is a clear shot of a Eurofighter type lifthill. Looks like a great addition for that park, good name, theme and layout!
