Canobie Lake Park Unleashes Untamed! New Roller Coaster!

Postby Moose » Sat Jun 11, 2011 2:30 pm

Today Canobie Lake Park let UNTAMED loose and Theme Park Review was there to cover it for you!

This wild coaster is one of only four Euro Fighters in the US and the only in the Northeast.
The coasters' 97 degree first drop makes it one of the steepest in the country.
The coasters' cars are a custom design with a roaring grizzly on the front.

POV Video!



Canobie Lake Park opened early on this VERY wet Saturday for the ribbon cutting of their newest coaster, UNTAMED, the fourth in their collection.

Located in the redone Big Bear Plaza with a rustic "Adirondack" style and numerous carved bears and other woodland creatures. The buildings and landscaping look beautiful, but I was there for one thing...

I jest (sort of). The park did a great job with the area, this is the one of the nicest stations I've ever seen for a coaster.

Here you can see how badly it was raining.


As stated above, the trains have a ferocious looking grizzly on the front. For media day, one of the grizzlies was outfitted with a camera, but unfortunately the rain was so severe, it couldn't be used.

After a brief ribbon cutting ceremony, the park opened the coaster ... in the POURING RAIN.

Another look at the beautiful station and the awful rain.

Unfortunately I didn't get a great picture of the helix.


It's a great ride and a great addition to the park. Everyone that came off it seemed extremely happy (and very wet)! Congrats to Canobie for running a great event and for the assured success of UNTAMED!

The theming looks great, especially the supports. I'm really looking forward to riding this on the NE trip!

I really love how they painted the supports to look like birch trees. It's a shame the weather was so crappy though.

I miss Canobie! This was my childhood park. Untamed looks great, I think it is a perfect fit for the park. I must make it up there sometime in the near future!
