Canobie Lake Park
Location: Salem, NH
Canobie Lake Amusement Park has been around since 1902 and has been giving thrills to guests each and every day. The park opened in 1902 under the supervision of the Massachusetts Northeast Street Railway Company. In the early years, the park was known for its flower gardens, prominades and gentle, relaxing attractions. In the 1930’s the show plaza started showing some of the best entertainment of the time including Duke Ellington. That success continued throughout the history of the park even playing host to Aerosmith.
The amusement park that sits there today is a culmination of the success and the want to add family fun time for everyone. The park’s most well-known ride is the Yankee Canonball which has been in the park since the 1930s. The classic woodie continues to give rides each and every year. In 1987, the park built its first steel coaster when Arrow Dynamics placed Canobie Corkscrew in the park.
In the 2000s the park has begun to add more thrills to the park. The park has added the only dark ride in the northeast called Mine of Lost Soles and a Shoot the Chutes ride themed after the Boston Tea Party. One of the largest attractions to be placed in the park was done so in 2011. The park added Untamed which is a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter 320+ model coaster. This is only the fourth of these coasters in America and the only one in the Northeast. The park boasts a Frisbee ride from Huss and just opened a new flat ride called Equinox. All in all this park has 47 rides and many attractions with some great food as well. There is fun for the whole gang, so if you are in New Hampshire, make sure you pay a visit to Canobie Lake Park.
