“Great for people of all ages!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Canobie Lake Park has something for everyone. It has intense roller coasters for the thrill seekers. It has lot of kiddie rides for the young ones. They put on great shows (we watched a wonderful tribute to Madonna). There is also a lot of food options dispersed throughout the park as well as a water park for those hot, summer months. I would definitely recommend taking the family here. We loved it!

“don't listen to the bad reviews below”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

I just went and it was awesome. TRUST ME. It was great because most school didn't get out yet and it was the middle of the week... WOOHOO NO LINES!!!!!!!!!! It was surprisingly cute (looking). It was clean and of high quality (not some random fair). FUN FOR ALL AGES!!!!!!!!! Even if you don't like the scary rides or think they are dangerous you can always go on others. I didn't want to go on untamed but when my friend finally urged me to go on it was AWESOME!!!!!!

“Great for kids”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

This is a great day trip from Boston. Although perhaps not as cute or wholesome-feeling as Santa's Village or Storyland, Canobie Lake has the advantage of being only 45 minutes from the city. The park is clean, reasonably-priced, and it includes an extensive children's section. We have a three year old daughter, and she loved the wide variety of kiddie rides, including a kiddie roller coaster, kiddie swings, and lots more. This is well worth a day trip for any families with young kids in the Boston area.

“Fun place for all ages!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Canobie is just as clean and the employees just as friendly now as they have been for many years! I was a little worried when I heard that Six Flags bought them, thought some of the character would be lost, somehow, but it's still a great place to go with kids of any age. I'm amazed that they keep finding room for more (and cooler) rides without it seeming too crowded. At the same time, they still have the oldies like the Caterpiller and the Yankee Cannonball wooden roller coaster, which are awesome!

“What a great time!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Yesterday was my first time visiting Canobie Lake Park. I have to say it was awesome. What a great and fun place to go. There's things for every one that visits from children to adults. The park is remarkably clean, and the people there, crowd wise, were far more courteous than Six Flags NE. If you get a discount deal, the price of admission is not too bad. You don't have to pay for parking, which is wonderful and I can't say anything bad about this park. The ride from Central MA is not a long one, and it really is worth your while. There is so much to do, but you will need more than one day to go.

They keep the restrooms very clean, which I am impressed by as well.
