Now a must-do when we go on vacation to Old orchard beach... yeah... I know... it's an 1 hour and a half drive from there but kids have grown up and the York zoo fare is not enough. Employees are always really nice and polite (even in september when they could be tired after the season). My boys love to... More

I have been to many amusement parks over the years, but I find this one of the most family friendly parks I have visited. It's clean, not overly packed, no offensive language. The food is what it is, not great, not bad.. But the employees should all be rewarded, they all smile, pay attention to what they are getting paid... More

The rides are super fun but I suggest you get there 20 minutes before it opens to be the first one in line for a special ride you like. The lines do get very long on a busy day obviously. The Frisbee is one of the most fun rides they have there and I always get there early to be... More

This was my fist time to canobie lake and i will say it was pretty good. It is no six flags though. Overall i think six flags is better but canobie is cheaper to go to and pretty good. Some of there roller coasters have poor head protection though so your head is getting thrown everywhere. Overall all though it... More

My husband and I took our 4 nieces for the day. The kids love it here. We got there early, and I had pre purchased my tickets through AAA and saved $6 a ticket. The kids loved all the rides and games. It was a beautiful day, and the park does offer a lot of shady areas. Food was good-... More

This park is perfect for all ages. I love how they offer discounts through AAA and Cosco etc... You get a lot of bang for your buck here. Free parking. Its an amusement park and water park. I love this park and my opinion they're not always trying to reach in your wallet. We ate lunch at the park and... More

I am tall, overweight and have vertigo, so it is not surprising that an amusement park is not my favorite place. But my fiance loves it so much he wants his ashes scattered there, so we go a number of times per year. We try to get there early, so we get a good parking spot close to the door.... More

Canobie never disappoints. It still has the feel of the "old time" amusement park, unlike Six Flags, which I like. You have to watch the opening times, because the differ. If you go right when the park opens, go to the most popular ride(s) right away before they fill up (Boston Tea Party, Yankee Cannonball). It's always a good day... More
