I visited Canobie Lake Park on Saturday, August 9, 2008.
I got there at 10:25am.
Here's the crowd waiting for rope drop.
The concessions carts had new stonework theming.
On the side of the Tattoo Barn, there was a small memorial garden for Tom Morrow.
Stone tables outside Yankee Whaler.
The 2008 Sons of Liberty Tavern menu. No falafel!
Boston Harbor Patrol was up and running.
The tall posts were left intact, for use as light poles.
The minimum height to ride alone is 42 inches.
The exit queue is extremely long, twisty, and full of rope and netting.
The ride in operation.

56-second video of the Boston Harbor Patrol in action. Full ride cycle, though interrupted by someone walking in front.
This was the Yankee Cannonball queue at 10:40am, before rides opened at 11:00am.
Zero Gravity has a new canopy.
The bottom of the ride is now hidden by colorful panels.
Zero Gravity even has a matching, themed bin to hold riders' possessions!
The Zero Gravity in action, later in the day.
The Log Flume queue at 10:46am, still before rides opened.
Oh no! An unthemed trash can near the Log Flume.
The Portofino Restaurant menu. (I recommend the Chicken Parmigiana.)
