  1. The last couple years there hasn't been to much that i have gotten really ecxited about. this one has simply blown me away. layout and tyle all look great.
  2. SFNE has always been hit or miss. I have had a handfull of great visits but countless visits that were horrible beyond belief. I didn't go back for 7 years and finally it's been a couple years since that visit. As for the tram they only own 2 or 3 and one is down because their modified truck messed up and it jackniffed and crashed in to the guard rail. So that one is out fo commission. Maybe make a vacation out of it and check out Compounce and Quassy, or go a bit further and visit Canboie.
  3. I was originally planning to do 2 trip reports I one but plans fell through. But I and some of my family hit up Story Land on Opening day. Weather was a bit chilly in fact there was still snow on many of the mountain peaks. Because of this the water rides were off the table for this trip but the park had Splash Battle and The Bamboo Chutes open. Dr Geyser's however was closed and it was the only ride closed that day. We ate no food at the park but instead had Breakfast at Dunkin Doughnuts on the way to the park and at a Nearby Restaurant, Delaney's Hole in the Wall. With the Addition of l
  4. After a quick stop at Jefferson Fun Park, Formally Six Gun City, I made my way up to Jefferson, NH's big attraction, Santa's Village. With the rain and no crowds at For Jefferson I didn't know what to expect when I got to Santa's village. To my surprise, the parking lots were packed. Despite this the park was not overly crowded, with only short waits for the rides. I had only a few goals on this trip and I had only a few hours to do them. I took some time to say hello to the parks owner, try out 2 new food items, check out the new downtown, the new Elf Lodge, and while I didn't use it, I took
  5. Though a bit later than normal, Canobie Lake Park opened for the season. Weather was fantastic for a day at the park mid to high 60’s with a few clouds. No heavy winds to affect any rides. I was visiting with my older brother Steven. Throughout the day I ran into friends from ACE and The Canobie fan forums. I first went to Customer Service to buy tickets for the season along with upgrading an unused ticket from last year. $84 dollars for 3 tickets good for the season. The upgraded ticket cost me nothing since prices didn’t increase from 2014 to 2015. One cool thing is this year they give yo
  6. Since I was in the area and snagged a discounted season pass I drove the extra hour to the park and processed the pass. I had only been to the park once in the last few years but this year the park installed a new wood coaster, Roar-o-Saurus. This was a Thursday so I expected light crowds but I arrived to a full parking lot. Despite this, the crowds were a bit moderate within the park itself and most rides were either walk-ons or only a cycle or so wait. The mid week busyness may have had something to do with the fact that Curious George was making an appearance that day. Season pass proc
  7. With less room to expand they add to the park by having a strong entertainment lineup. On top of the shows they have fireworks every saturday night a brass band in the village area and smaller events on specific nights. Fall/screemfest is just as impressive. this fall will be Rock tober fest with a diferent tribute rock band every weekend. One Direction Replaced Justin Beiber which ran for 2 years. Last year they also has katy perry with Lady Gaga 2 years ago. Matt Lewis who play Elvis Operates the company Canobie uses for the shows. She is conected to the Legands live shows that play in
  8. First off I have to thank by friend Mack (Pubman) for treating me to a day at Canobie. I arrived at 10:45 to meet up and get into the park for the start of the day. The focus today was to see the 2014 tribute shows and if possible the vaudeville Magic Show. Rides were second on the list. We were disappointed to see that the park's dark ride Mine of Lost Souls was listed as closed for the day. The park also listed Equinox, Wave Blaster and DaVinci's Dream. Davinci's Dream did open around 1pm and I observed maintenance working on the Mine and Wave Blaster. I walked to the Mine hoping to get
  9. Nice extra attraction. Wish it was going to be around longer. What's normaly in thsi space?
  10. An article recently came out were park managment said that season passes are not offered because of the low in park capacity. I would really like to see one. if I had bought 3 tickets it would have been 84 dollars. Higher then any season pass in New England.
  11. Yes it's a Rotor attraction. In the last coupel of years the floor wasn't dropping much- a couple feet. But on opening day it was dropping to it's lowest level and actually stayed down a bit longer then my last trip. This model is a hybrib of 2 comapanies. SDC did the last rehab and upgrade. It can pull 33rpms which makes it the fastest ride in the park. Here's a link to the larger photo - http://photos.newwhalom.com/Trip%20Reports/Canobie%20Lake%20Park/openingday2014/CLP27.html
  12. Spring is here and with that park season has begun. After a week delay, Canobie is finally open for the season. Weather was warm but there were overcast skies and a risk of rain which seemed to scare many people off. I saw a greater than normal amount of people buying any-day tickets and driving off. I grabbed lunch on the way at a Dairy Queen and managed to get to the park just before opening. Guests were already in the park and rides were testing or already going. I bought 2 tickets and upgraded one left over from last year. So after visiting today I have tickets for two more trips.
  13. With an extra weekend of operation it made things easier to work in a trip to Six Flags New England (SFNE). Weather projection had clear skies, cold temperatures starting in the 50’s and dropping close to freezing come nightfall with no snow or rain in the forecast. I was off to the park with my brothers and sisters-in-law. For those who know me best I will pause to let you look out your window for flying pigs. So after a seven year hiatus from visiting the park on a normal operating day, I was finally returning. Before we went we hit a local Golden Corral to have lunch. As we arrived
  14. The day is finally here where Canobie not only opens for the season, but has its one day sale. I got off to a slightly late start but managed to get to the park about 5 past 11, just after park opening. I quickly parked and made my way to customer service to buy my season tickets. Canobie has no season pass but instead sells discounted tickets good for the entire season. I bought 3 for $81 dollars and used one to get in to the park. The first thing I noticed is that security was doing bag checks. This was a first for the main season though it was done the last 2 years during Screeemfest. I e
  15. The day opened with an introduction from Russ and a special thanks to the Assistant Regional Reps. Hannah Harrison was introduced form the NY region. There was a get-to-know you game with a goal to find people that have road all the scheduled ERT Coaster Con coasters, Goliath in 2012, going on ACE Euro tour, etc. The park served cheese pizza and salad. They then played videos while everyone ate. The raffle was held throughout the event with items like park tickets, Untamed magnets, and other park trinkets. The action included Items form Boulder Dash’s rehab including the front plate to the gr
