Is there a 2007 wood coaster announced or not we can talk about?

I was just at Canobie for the first time a few weeks ago, and I was blown away! It's a beyond excellent park with tons of stuff to do, and Yankee Cannonball is now my 2nd favorite coaster in New England (behind Bdash.)

I know there has been years and years of buzz on the park getting a new woodie, does anybody know supposedly what area of the park this is supposed to go in? The park seems somewhat limited on space and I was wondering if there was some sort of general consensus on where a new coaster would probably end up if it ever did happen.

Next summer, I just have to get back to both Lakemont and DelGrossos. I want to ride that Leap the Dips and Skyliner at Lakemont and the Revolution (or whatever they call it) and that Crazy Mouse (I know that it's the same as the one at KW but its outdoors) at DelGrossos. Also I want to have some of that Italian food and potato salad at DelGrossos.

I think you took that comment the wrong way. What he was saying was that the chances of the Lincoln Park Comet being rebuilt at the park will depend on how well the Meteor does. I don't think he was suggesting the success of the park will depend on that project.

Woohoo, RENEGADE!

Chuck, who knows this needs to be in the disscussion forum and not the comment on announcement forum who's post was removed.

But hey, It's all good eh?

coasterqueenTRN's avatar ^You haven't teased me about Renegade yet, Matt. Usually you tease me about my undying love for GCI's. ;)

I think it will be SWEET! Love the POV!

Not as twistery as there other masterpieces, but I like just the same. Could be the sleeper hit for next summer.

Mapquest says from the office to the park is 11.2 miles. Not bad since I will be going there after work every day next year. Maybe lunch breaks too.

Everywhere I am reading people comparing Renegade to Lightning Racer and I just don't get it. This ride to me looks so similar to Thunderhead I would not be surprised if when Valleyfair ordered it, they said, "give us a ride like Thunderhead except add more of that longer airtime on that one cool hill in front of the station and maybe add something new like a double twisting first drop." If that is what they asked for, this is the coaster I would expect. The first turnaround on Renegade looks very similar to the first on Thunderhead. The second on Renegade after the S turn looks almost just like the second on Thunderhead that goes under and then over the lift. Renegade seems to have some of the smaller hops that Thunderhead has, but not as much. Those that are missing are replaced with more longer straight floats that Thunderhead lacks. That accounts for all the additional straight track on Renegade which is constantly twisting just like Thunderhead unless you are in an airtime hill. I put both POV's side by side and was watching one after another back to back and I was amazed at the similarties.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar I think it's a combo of the two. Lightning Racer is more spread out kinda like a double out and back, but I see the similarities to Thunderhead now that you pointed them out. Renegad eis basically a curvatious out & back with a figure 8 section in the middle.

I was disappinted at first, expecting more of a twister layout, but I'm digging it now. I just hope those long float hills deliver unlike that big one passed the front of Rumbler's station. Hopefully they're turning up the sustained speed on this one. 100 feet of potential gravity spread across 3000 feet of track should be pretty decent.

See you there on opening day. We can discuss it further. :)

rollergator's avatar ^ Given the existence of High Roller, it wasn't exactly unreasonable of you to *anticipate* a more twister-type layout, especially with GCII at the helm.

Maybe they're thinking HR is the *family* woodie and that the new ride will be the *thrilling* woodie? Just a thought...

I don't know how reliable this info is but my friend had lunch today with someone who works for Valleyfair and she called me to say construction has begun. If it is true, it is good news that the permit situation has been taken care of.
