That track color is awesome. Ever since RMC I-box makeovers started becoming a thing, I've been waiting for a park to go with a natural wood-like beige color as opposed to bright reds and blues and greens (as much as I love those too). I'm very interested to see how this turns out.

Past night Robin Hood made it's last rounds around the track. After closing hours (23:00 October 28th) there was a special event (around 01:00 October 29th) for 24 people to say goodbye to the Wooden coaster. It was here that they revealed the name of the RMC: Untamed. Untamed will open July 1st 2019. Groundwork had been started last week while the ride was still operational but now with the park closed till April 2019 the real work can start. A spokeperson has promised that they will keep fans posted on the lasted developments. There has yet to a full lay-out reveal.

Personal thoughts: I like the name, despite being a bit bland for an RMC if you ask me. Saturday there was a rumor the ride might be called Timber Trip. So it being revealed as Untamed was a nice surprise. I'm a bit disapointed they didn't reveal more but they only promised the name so I can't be too mad.

^I wonder what was the fastest RMC conversion to date from last ride to first ride? This seems pretty quick!

I think it might be Twisted Colossus at just over 9 months. Colossus closed on 8/16/14 and reopened on 5/23/15. I thought it may have been Twisted or Wicked Cyclone, but both took 10 months.

I've always been a fan of Untamed as a name, but the logo looks aot better at Canobie. Here it looks like a carnival sign. But that really doesn't matter much since the ride will most likely be awesome.

The Source I got the name from tells that the logo isn't in it's the definitive logo. I hope they still change it because I agree with you.

On the Youtube making off: I love it way better then that Snapchat stuff they did whith Lost Gravity. I'm quite exited to follow this.

The park uploaded part 1 of the making of:


Just a recap:
Untamed is named after the supossed feeling of the ride.
Hight of Untamed revealed: 36,5 meter (previously 32 meters)
Graffiti is added to Merlin's magic castle for the Wilderness theme.
The park had stopped trimming trees and plants this year in the Wildrness area to let nature take controll.
They hint towards some elements being revealed and talking to RMC in the next part at the end.

The video is good it shows a lot of whats happening to the area and to the ride. However I'm not sure about the new look for Merlin's castle, it's the entrance all over again (last winter).
