If your family is like many Merrimack Valley families, an annual trip to the over 100-year-old Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire is a must. On this Fourth of July weekend this garden-style amusement park will host thousands of visitors. From the pastoral to the fast-paced – there’s something for everyone. This year there’s something new and exciting.
In today’s Nashua Telegraph, Alexandra Churchill tells us about the lastest attraction awaiting thrill-seeking visitors – “Untamed.”
Untamed is a vertical lift coaster that takes up to eight passengers in a coaster car at a time and reaches up to 44 miles per hour.
It is the first vertical lift coaster in New England and only one of four in the country. It stands at 72 feet tall and covers a range of 150-by-200 feet on the grassy lawn at the edge of the park past the antique cars track and before the Jackpot Casino. The first climb peaks at 72 feet in the air and plummets into a 97-degree drop, winding into 1,184 feet of track with loops and zero-gravity rolls.
Untamed replaces the Galaxy coaster… and joins the ranks of Canobie’s other thrill rides, including the Starblaster, the Psychodome and Xtreme Frisbee.

PS – Some of my family members will visit Canobie Lake Park later today. I’ll report back. Stay tuned.
