Canobie Corkscrew a clone???

Tuesday, January 22, 2002 11:09 AM
I've been looking at old arrow loopers aka Corkscrews and the "Corkscrew" that was at Knotts is the same thing as the canobie corkscrew... same lenght, height, layout, etc. Also the Python at BGT is seemingly a clone and the Corkscrew at Salitre Magico is the same thing. Is this a clone and a lot of parks have them, so were they the Boomerang of the 80's???

Canobie is accually a modified clone. It is slightly (unnoticably) different from Knott's (not Silverwood's) and BGT's. It is modified because it was accually designed to be indoors, with restricting space (back then it was the Chicago Loop)

In case you want to see Canobie's treasure at it's former home, check these out:

It also operated at the Alabama State Fairgrounds between '82 and '86. Arrow built several Corkscrew models after the first one in '75 was a hit. Sometime around '78 they switched to support columns instead of the webbing around the loops.
