  • I had my kids attempt to go to Canobie Lake on the final night of their Halloween haunt. Unfortunately the weather was nasty and Canobie decided not to open. I am most upset that I checked the website...  more »

  • Canobie Lake Park is tons of fun and I always enjoy going there. The park itself was neat and tidy. From the rides to food, (although a little pricey) it was great!  more »

  • Nice family park. Not a Mega park like Six Flags but nice. They still haven't got a handle on the fact that it's a family park and people, especially children dehydrate quickly on a hot day. They will deny you water at the stands even if you buy the all day cup. I'm talking about tap water. What kind of a person denies someone tap water on a hot day? Our family doesn't drink soda so it's very challenging. We got an email last year saying that is not their policy to deny water yet this year we had the same problem. So a family of 4 costs roughly $240 for tickets and drink cups and you still can't get a glass of water.
  • I always have a blast each time I go there! The water park is wonderful, and so are the slides. The rides are for all ages and levels, some being calm, and others being thrilling. The food isn't bad. Honestly, I could say a lot worse. The park is very fun, I go there about twice a year. All in all, I do enjoy this park. My only cons are.. well, there isn't any. But it could always do better, so I'll leave this review at 4.
  • We went for the Mother's day promotion; it rained on the actual holiday so they moved it to the next week, which was an amazing day weather wise. With another paid ticket, moms got a free admission to the park and lunch. It was really a fantastic deal! The park was clean, the rides were all really fun, and there were lots of options for food (and thanks for having alcohol for the parents). A great option for families of young children.
  • I wanna thank Canobie lake park and all its staff members for making the make-up Mother's Day celebration an awesome experience. It was awesome that you guys allowed moms to enjoy their day, you all truly did an outstanding job making this past Sunday such a great day. From buying tickets, to being welcomed with lots of bright smiles, staff members threw out the park were all so attentive to making our experience one to remember. Not to mention Moms great choices of free lunch. The lines were so long but they made it look so easy n had food flying out from out back. Hope this summer continues this great...looking to have more fun at Canobie Lake Park....
  • Great place. 100x better than six flags and a third of the cost. The prices are great. The cost of their food and drinks are great, their rides are great, and you never wait more than 20 minutes to get on a ride and most of the time there's not even a wait more than a couple of minutes
