BTW, the capacity to Wildebeast, 720 pph, is appox. 2/3 TTD's, 1000 pph, accoding to RCDB.
Actually (and this is using higher math here, so don't get all intimidated), Wildebeast's capacity is exactly 72% of TTD's. ;)
That is pretty basic math...but POOR spelling!
If you don't mind me asking what is TTD?
Top thrill dragster.
Well...I got the longest part!
I can't wait to ride this in next season. It seems that Holiday World and ProSlide have developed the perfect "water coaster."
FINALLY, they thought of using the conveyor belt for the lift. Is this a world's first?
I Visited Canobie Lake in 1983 and was VERY Impressed with this park. If my Budget allows maybe I'll visit it again. I seem to have the same "Problem" 99.999% of us Coaster Buffs have:

I called the longest part too, I dont really think the tallest and fastest record will ever be broken for a water slide again. I just dont see anyone deciding to build taller then Master Blaster, which is only that tall because Schlitterbahn put it on top of another slide complex.
As per usual, Holiday world has brought a great idea that most members of the family can enjoy. This looks like a great addition to what is already a top notch waterpark...
Touchdown, are you saying Master Blaster is the tallest and fastest water slide in the world???
41 meters = 134 feet and 105 km/h = 65 mph or 95 feet per second.Last edited by woohooboy, Friday, August 14, 2009 8:00 AM
Reg, You'd be even more impressed with Canobie now.
Over the past few years, they've worked VERY hard at upgrading the place AND maintaing the park.
In fact, in 2007, the overhauled the main gate and added that Huss Disk-o. The Cannonball is still running like a champ.
^^Water coaster, not slide.
The one you linked to is just a speed slide.
I believe each uphill section is a block.
You are correct - both Noah's Ark and Schlitterbahn run their watercoasters on that same sort of blocking scheme...
I can see them releasing rafts so that they are over a block apart, but on coasters, there is a mechanism (block brake) to stop the trains in the other parts of the ride should a train valley. I don't think I'd want to hit a valleyed raft going 25 mph. Is there a way to stop the rafts? I presume shutting off the power must be sufficient.
Speaking of Canobie Lake, did they buy the starfish ride from geauga lake?
I was looking at Canobie lakes website, and saw a picture of a starfish ride and the only one I ever knew of was the geauga lake starfish.
After looking at the parks website, I may just have to visit this park....looks like a great park.
When I last visited Canobie Lake (In 1983) I found out that their Giant Ferris Wheel was the one that used to operate at Edgewater Park in Detroit, Michigan. Does anyone know if this ride is still there?
Well FINALLY!!! I'm getting you guys to give some love to my home park!
Anytime you come up, give me a shoutout.
Canobie is a kickin' little park. It's a true FAMILY park. They' got enough stuff for everybody, from gradma who likes the train & carousel, to enough stuff for the thrill seekers, like the Starblaster and the Yankee Cannonball. Plus, there's plenty of stuff for the kids.
A little advice: Get to the park about an hour before the published gate time. They start selling admission about 45 minutes before and open the gates about a 1/2 hour before. The rides START at the pubished times. Hit the YC first and a few more timmes throughout the day.
I think I might have missed something in this thread, what does Holiday World's new water coaster have to do with Canobie Lake?
Hopman - we get it...you like Canobie. Please stop mentioning it in every thread. Or better yet, go start your own Canobie love thread!
Wait a minute -- did I miss something? Hopman likes Canobie? The hell you say! ;)
