Been going to Canobie Lake Park since I was a kid, and we try to make it there 2-3 times a year with our own kids. They have a small section for little kids, and plenty of rides for older kids. There are only 3 large coasters, with the Yankee Cannonball being the oldest, and probably the best (it's an... More

It's a medium sized amusement park with a water park and many rides. It also offer the usual food stands and arcades. There is something for everyone.

I've been coming here every year since I was maybe 4 years old... So 30 years. It is just such a great place to spend a whole day. So clean, with short lines on a weekday, and character you just don't see at other theme parks. The trees are beautiful, they play cute music throughout the park, there are some... More

This is a great place for families with young kids under 17. Its clean and safe. Why would a family travel hours for rides and swimming....you got it right hear. And its good on your wallet.

Despite bad reviews this park is overall a great and fun place. Most of the bad reviews are based on a one time experience. I have been going here for 6 years and I have never had a bad experience. Rides especially the Boston Tea Party, are very fun. You just have to do your research and pick a smart... More

I have been going to CANOBIE LAKE PARK since 1966 and over the years it has gone from family owned to corporate owned . They were at one time a great value but now that they try to compete with 6 flags they can't cut it. We still take the family every year BECAUSE they are the only amusement park... More

Good place to visit ONCE. New attractions are few and far between. Come when they first open for shorter wait times and hit all the coasters first. Moms get in free (with child admission) on Mother's Day, and Dads get in free (with child admission) on Father's day. Deal works for grandparents too! One free admission for each child admission....

I grew up across the lake from Canobie Lake Park. In those days it was only 50 cents to get in and then you bought tickets. Today it is a full park with one admission fee. The park is always beautiful and clean. Its flowers are wonderful and it is just a fun, family experience. If you are in the... More
