Canobie was gonna get a new ride for the 2017 season, but at the last minute was ditched. Due to ridiculous safety concerns.

The New Hampshire Explorer Rapids ride would have been an amazing addition. Something that could have really drawn in new guest and shown off the capital improvements they have made in the last few years. The cancellation upset a lot of people.

My only hope is they reconsider the addition in a year or so. The only good thing in my mind about them opted to not add a water ride is an alternative attraction may not be so seasonal.

Yeah I am hoping so too. Its not so much that the ride itself being cancelled that upsets me, but the over the top safety concern that shouldn’t even be a big deal, is what really upsets me. Untamed is more likely to get a serious accident than a rapids ride.

That's possibly true. Being safety conscious is good but They seem to be talking it to a whole new level.

Here is some local coverage of the incident.

While the park was wrong to have a ride with no safety restraints the girl ultimately caused the accident by standing up on the ride in the first place.
