Everyone has a favorite attraction no matter what theme park they are talking about. It does not matter if you are talking about Disney World in Florida or Funtown Splashtown USA in Maine. However, we will not be looking at those theme parks in this article, instead, we will be looking at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire.
Over the years, attractions have come and gone from Canobie Lake Park. Some of the rides and attractions that have been taken out of the park were a swimming pool at the front of the park, an upsidedown rollercoaster called the Corkscrew, and even a mirror/glass maze that I personally used to get lost in all the time as a child.
As I mentioned before, there are new attractions that have come to Canobie Lake Park over the years, the newest rollercoaster is called Untamed and will also send you roaring upside down. For the 2023 season, Canobie Lake Park is also bringing in at least one new attraction called Nebulaz that will literally have you flying high.
I asked around to try to find out what attraction at Canobie Lake Park thinks is the best. Honestly, the answer may not be that shocking to you.
The majority of the responses claim that the Yankee Cannonball is the best ride at the park. It is also one of the oldest attractions at Canobie Lake Park and personally, I feel it always has the longest line. If you haven't yet been on the Yankee Cannonball, it is a wood rollercoaster where your bottom may not always remain in the seat (at least mine doesn't) when you go fast up and down hills.
Granted the line is always wicked long and I am always afraid of coming up out of the seat, the Yankee Cannonball is not my number 1 attraction at Canobie Lake Park.
So what are my favorite attractions? Well, I have them ranked below for you.
