took advantage of the after 5:00pm discount and visited on a Saturday evening in late June. The park was hopping and the parking lot was full. Despite the full parking lot, the park was clean, the staff was friendly. Despite the crowds, we were able to ride off of their roller coasters in about 90 minutes in total, and that... More

My boys 4 and 6 love Canobie. We can go on many rides together since the boys are both tall for their age. Good food options and fun atmosphere. We usually pack a cooler for lunch and leave it in the car and go out of the park for a break to eat and return after for some more fun,... More

A great way to spend a day without traveling too far. They make improvements every year, so if you haven't been in awhile you need to go again.

Every year we get together with friends and spend some time at Canobie Lake Park. There are rides for everyone, food for everyone (including gluten, soy and dairyfree options), games galore, fun music, and even alcoholic beverages for the adults.

Great fun place. We visited with family (Several Adults and Kids of all Ages). There are rides for kids of all ages. Plenty of food options. Don't miss the Fried Dough ;). And Absolutely no missing the Boston Tea Party Water Ride. Yes, you will get wet on that ride. Shoes are a must to be on this ride, so... More

This place is hidden away and close to home if you live near or on 495/93. The admission price was typical of Theme Parks. I do have to say that the food was a little on the expensive side, the lines can get a little long. I do have to say over all the kids had a fantastic time and... More

Yes I agree with the reviewer who says long lines for the rides and expensive food (and would add that it's mostly fast food like pizza and french fries with boring salads). HOWEVER, we go back every year for the Dave Whitney(sp?) Big Band that plays on a Sunday in June. We LOVE LOVE LOVE that band and dance like... More

Went with my hubby, my 4 year old, my 14 year old and two 11 year old's. The parking attendents were really organized and great getting everyone in. The admission price was average. Every ride had a wait and your turn on the ride extremely short. Food was crazy expensive. $4 for a bottled Ice Tea! There is a no... More

We traveled here with our 7 year old, after reading the scary reviews for Six Flags in New England and realizing we didn't want to spend all our time waiting in lines or paying lots of $$ for Speed Passes. Did we make the right call! We got to Canobie Lake park just after 6 pm - free parking and... More

Clean, plenty of shade, great friendly staff and family friendly. We actually went on 'senior day'....free for folks over 60. We have both been to the park over many years as children ourselves and with our children. We went to scope it out again to take our granddaughter someday. We totally enjoyed the rides.....took the 20 minute boat trip around... More
