I went to Canobie Lake Park for the first time on Monday. I have always wanted to visit this park, but I never wanted to take the drive and pay the money; however, when I heard about 'Untamed,' I knew it was time to go - plus Monday and Tuesday of this week were "Pay $22 instead of $32 days." The park was SO CROWDED. I really thought it would be empty or relatively empty. Lots of school buses. Every ride - even EVERY FLAT RIDE - had a HUGE LINE! I felt like the park could not handle the crowds. What is this park doing that Lake Compounce is not doing? Why can't Lake Compounce get these crowds? The park is not worth $32 admission in my opinion - perhaps admission is a bit high since parking is free? But coaster lovers should go to experience 'Untamed' - yes, it's kind of short, but the first drop is worth it. Thoughts about 'Untamed": Unique - fun - thrilling - first drop is incredible. Lake Compounce should have built this. Six Flags New England should have built this. Maybe this will make Six Flags New England build something next year. 'Gotham City Gauntlet' should have gone to The Great Escape or Six Flags America in Maryland. 'Gotham City Gauntlet,' although different, is too much like 'Pandemonium' and does nothing for the park. Six Flags New England needs a roller coaster that will take pressure off of 'Bizarro" especially when the park first opens. An Intamin Impulse (V2 or Wicked Twister style) or a clone of 'Mr. Freeze' would certainly do that - or a ride like 'Untamed.' For anyone who has been on 'Mr. Freeze' at Six Flags Over Texas or Six Flags St. Louis, that ride is incredible, and is SO MUCH BETTER than the Chiller or Joker's Jinx - the 90 degree section is out of this world. Thoughts about the park in general: Wow - lots of flat rides. In my opinion, to offset the lack of roller coasters. How did this park survive with only a small wooden coaster and a 2-looping cordscrew coaster all these years? I wish that if a park was going to have a lot of flat rides, that they were more unique. A wipeout, pirate ship, flying scooters, tilt-a-whirl, and scrambler are so common and so tame - I wish more parks had a Condor, Monster, Rainbow, or 'Buzzsaw' syle ride. I did appreciate that their Scrambler was enclosed, however, if you are going to enclose it, (and maybe you can't due to law I'm not sure) make it completely in the dark with strobe lights at times. When I went to The Great Escape over ten years ago, their Scrambler was not only fast, but COMPLETELY in the dark with strobe lights at time -altough it was just a Scrambler, it was intense and fun. The one at Lake Compounce was not that good. The ferris wheel should be moved to in front of the lake - the Pirate Ship as well. Lake Compounce used to have their Pirate Ship near the lake - at least now it's near a man-made waterfall. In addition, I always wonder why a park has a skyride that does not bring guests to the other end of the park? The park needs a 'Blizzard River' style raft ride. Tiki Maze (walk through maze of mirrors) was different and fun. First park I've seen although than Six Flags Great Adenture (in past years) to have both a Round-Up and a Rotor ride. Train ride is nice. 'Mine of Lost Souls' should become a Sally Co. dark ride like "Ghost Hunt" at Lake Compounce. The park Thoughts to improve the park: Like this could happen - well maybe it could if a company like Cedar Fair bought the park - but if the park added more water-park style bathing suit water rides (wave pool, lazy river, slides, etc.), 2 more S&S towers to compliment the one 'Starblaster' has, a hyper coaster and an inverted impulse coaster like V2 or Wicked Twister, this park could really be put on the map!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The park was bigger than I expected, was clean, but something was missing - if only a company could keep the small-park feeling and charm, but pump some coasters and a few more thrill rides into this park, and it could compete with Six Flags New England.
