We have been taking our small children recently but I have been visiting since I was young. There is lots to do for young riders and the lines are usually very short for kiddie rides.... More

We took two of our teens and their friends. We had a fun day but found that we had to spend a lot of money fir the six of us to have a great day. Food prices are not worth the food you get... (just my opinion) next time we will pack a cooler. I had a bad experience as... More

This is and has been a favorite place for family fun for many decades. Just a stones throw from route 93 in Salem NH. Have been going here for many years. Fun fun fun.

Canoe Lake is clean and safe! These are priorities for a grandparent when having a special day with "the kids". Both of the boys (ages 6 and 10) had a wonderful day. There were plenty of rides and attractions for both kids. The food we bought there was reasonably priced.

This was the first time I've been to Screemfest. I was very impressed with the attractions. The two indoor ones were amazing! Decor and staff were spot on! We really enjoyed the whole night. Can't wait to go back again!

Our family went to Screamfest at Canobie lake with our daughter and her friend. It was a really fun night. The night is filled with screams, laughter, eerie fog, and float heads. Canobie does an excellent job of decorating ever nook of the park in a halloween motif, with spider webs, scary scene reproductions, life actors dressed as various movie... More

I went to ScreemFest with my friend on a Friday night. All day we were excited for the fun and adventure. We arrived later than expected, but figured we would have time to see it all. I purchased a ticket from the (miserable) lady at the window. Right away we walked over to security, so we could start our fun.... More

If you go early, parking is reasonably available. Rest rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The water park was well supervised and just plain fun. There were plenty of chairs and different water slides and spouts for the children to enjoy.
