Explore the mysteries of New Hampshire's ancient past

The forests near Salem, NH are wondrous, but there's more to see here than just the trees. At America's Stonehenge off Rte. 111, you could be following in the steps of an ancient tribe of mystery men. In the woods you'll find a maze of rocks, stone chambers, and megaliths they may have left behind. Who were they? Native Americans? Or Old World voyagers who crossed the Atlantic well ahead of Columbus, people with knowledge of astronomy and stone construction? The questions have stymied scholars for generations. Our museum includes an orientation film, and our gift shop includes books with more information. In winter months our one-hundred-plus acres are also great for snowshoeing. And sharing the property is a small herd of gentle alpacas who love greeting visitors.
Bumper Boats - Chuckster's Family Fun Park - Chichester, NH
Chuckster's Family Fun Park

Two Great Locations Chichester and Hooksett, NH Phone: 603-798-3555

Everything is at play at Chuckster’s two New Hampshire locations

The only thing small about the mini golf courses at Chuckster’s two New Hampshire locations is the name. The courses themselves are huge, with water in play, some with multiple levels (at the Hooksett Chuckster’s you tee off from a fire tower) – and, of course, each location has the world’s longest mini golf hole.

That's not all tho! Over at Chuckster’s Family Fun Park in Chichester, there's 16 games and attractions to try out. Zip through the trees at TimberTrek Aerial Adventure Park. Scale our brand new Klime Wallz challenge with three unique climbing experiences. Take your shot at ChucksterBall or Frantic Hoops. Spin around on our new Bumper Boats, go for the checkered flag on the Go-kart Track, or prepare to get doused playing Shoot-N-Shower or Downpour Derby.
