Yankee Cannonball

\"\"This classic Schmeck out and back coaster is a wonderful ride.  The park has maintained this ride impeccably, keeping it in tip top shape.  The ride itself varies, as does any ride on a wooden coaster from year to year. The park realizes this and preserves it as well as any place can.  This coaster exemplifies early relocation and preservation efforts, and is perhaps the first coaster to be relocated anywhere.
ACE New England salutes Canobie Lake Park and its maintenance crew for maintaining and preserving this historic treasure.
