    Timber Splash's area could fit something small, perhaps it could intertwine with the log flume land as well.
    Maybe the current picnic grove area as well?

    Not for a coaster. Only large plot of land is the remaining field behind corkscrew between castaway and kiddie land 2 and the picnic grove. and we all know neither of them or going to get a coaster.

    only other option would be to further expand parking and argue with the city to use that back plot behind MoLS to house a coaster.

    Great point. Obviously it would be a longshot, but removing Timber Splash and removing almost the entire parking lot (maybe saving one row of parking) to install a version (more compact) of Copperhead Strike at Carowinds. It’s a Mack, plus it would fill the void of a lunch. It doesn’t go that high, it’s quite compact and the theme would fit that area of the park.

    I want to see the park add a coaster with a lower height requirement than 48". Anyone smaller than that only can ride the Dragon Coaster.

    That a big reason why I would like to see a family invert. The coaster has a 36in requirement is I recall correctly.

    Random but I just realized how many classic rides Canobie actually continues to operate...
    1.) Sky Ride
    2.) Caterpillar (Last of its kind!)
    3.) Tea Cups (they're actually very old...)
    4.) The Roosters
    5.) Carousel (with a working band organ!)
    6.) Yankee Cannonball (with buzzbars!!)
    7.) Train
    8.) A Dark Ride (A little modernized but a cool take on a classic concept)
    9.) Log Flume

    I really hope they keep the caterpillar for years to come. If I'm not mistaken its a last of its kind now.

    There may be one or 2 more caterpillars out there and a couple modern version.

    The last 2 I guess you can se at classics but thy are only from the 80's Corkscrew is older then both those rides.

    Twist and Shout/Tilt-a-Whirl should be on that list. All the rides in kiddie land one were added in the late 60's
