Canobie Lake Park has shut down the newest and one of its most popular attractions, Equinox, according to spokesman Chris Nicoli said. The ride will be closed for “the foreseeable future,” Nicoli said in a brief statement.

Here is a fun game. While reading that article, every time you see the word Equinox, replace it with Zomanjaro instead. Every time you see the park name Canobie, replace it with Six Flags. Delete the last part of the description of the ride, and insert 2014 over top of 2012. Pretend like the article is from the future. Have fun.
Dude get over it.
So this was a KMG Tango (their version of the Mondial Top Scan)? Love these rides...but it sounds reminiscent of the pissing match between DW and Huss over their topple tower. I wouldn't expect to see the ride run again at Canobie...ever.
FWIW, Equinox ran beautifully when it toured in the UK and Ireland.
I still miss that ride.
RCS has been running a traveling Tango for years and I've never heard of it having reliability issues. I wonder what the problem is?
I rode Reithoffer's a few times. It's fun, but the restraints really hurt and bruise.
I try to really CRANK the restraints down on rides like this and Power Surge. Seems like any freedom you might have when the ride starts just adds to the amount of slamming against the restraints, seat, etc., increasing the bruises...
You know how I avoid that problem?
I stay away from rides like that.
See, if I'd taken that attitude, I'd never have learned how to ride Maverick...LOL!
Happy Friday everybody!
