The ride is a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter, 320+ model. The ride was installed by Ride Entertainment Group, who handles all of Gerstlauer's operations in the Western Hemisphere. A very steep vertical lift hill is followed by a 75-foot (23 m), 97° vertical drop. After the drop the 8 person cars go through three inversions: a vertical loop, an Immelmann loop and a zero-g roll. The ride has a forest and wilderness theme with the supports for the ride made to look like white birch trees and the track painted dark green.
Untamed is Canobie Lake Park's third currently operating steel roller coaster, bringing the park's total number of coasters to four. There had not been a new roller coaster at Canobie Lake since the Dragon Coaster was added in 1991. Untamed is located near the park's oldest coaster, the Yankee Cannonball, and was built on top of an old field used for functions. Part of the Jackpot Casino was turned into the queue. The old spaceship was also moved to a storage area behind the park to make room for the ride.
