    Went to the park for the first time today with the family. Looked at several reviews before we left, and most of them were spot on.THE MAIN CONSENSUS OF REVIEWS I READ (and my opinion follows)1.) THE PARK IS QUITE CLEAN – absolutely true. Given the number of people in the park, they do a great job keeping the ground and most of the rides clean.2.) THE LINES ARE LONG AND DISORGANIZED – yes and yes; we went on a Wednesday in summertime (on a beautiful day) and there was a good crowd… sadly, most of the crew said it gets much worse on weekends; most lines were between a 15-25 minute way time, which is long, but could be worse, so you do need to bring your patience. One of the frustrating things is that most of the lines are meant to handle about 10 minutes for of people…. you’ll find that most lines spill out into the open pavement and can become very disorganized… get ready to start asking ‘Are you in line?’3.) THE FOOD IS EXPENSIVE AND SUBPAR – yes and it depends; prices are comparable to a state fair, which means you’ll shell out $30-$40 for a meal for your family of 4; we sampled a whole pizza ($16), french fries ($4), onion rings ($4), ice cream ($3.50), and slushes ($5/each)…. Everything was pretty good except the pizza which was AWFUL…. please find something else… it was completely tasteless… 4.) BRINGING FOOD IN IS A NO-NO – we ended up NOT bringing waters for the kids since so many said that staff would confiscate them at the entrance… one of our parents brought in Gatorades… they saw them in the bag… didn’t say anything…. also, I overheard the staff saying “we don’t check the bags of kids” so if you really want to bring your own food in, have your child bring a backpack to increase your odds5.) ADMISSION PRICE TOO HIGH – While $36 is a bit high (go to AAA and get $30 tix)…. there are more than 80 rides… you can have up to 11 hours in the park during the summer….. there are free shows for you to watch (which were pretty neat)… and you get free parking and free admission to a very cool waterpark; overall, I think it’s a decent deal…. what stinks is that there are no season passes (since we live within a few miles)6.) NOT ENOUGH RIDES FOR THE YOUNG OR OLDER – Not true; there are plenty for those under 48″ and for those OVER 48″… the problem WE ran into is that we have one child over 48″ and one UNDER 48″…. in many cases, they couldn’t ride the same rides…. either our taller child was too big to ride or the smaller child was too short… eliminated several of the options…. despite that, there was still PLENTY to do for the 7 hours we were there.CONCLUSION: Be prepared to spend about $60 per person for the day (admission, food, games). Be prepared to wait in lines for most (if not all). Be prepared to play a few games and win junky prizes. But, despite all that, your kids should have a fantastic time…. ours did, and we’ll likely be back!

    10 YEAR OLD ALMOST DIED READ!!!!!!!. Recently I took my granddaughter to Canobie lake park thinking it’d be a a family fun special day. But I was wrong. WAY wrong. After we got there my granddaughter pointed to a extreme roller coaster. I said no lets pick something calmer to start out with. And she picked the “Star Blaster”. We buckled in and the staff checked our seat harness. right when he was about to start the ride I hear “HELP, MY SEAT HARNESS UN CLICKED,HELP!” It was coming from my granddaughter! She quickly jumped out of the seat and told the staff about to start the ride. He correctly fastened her and started the ride. Later we went on the “Untamed” an the “Corkscrew” at the end with bruised heads. NEVER go to Canobie Lake Park. 100% unsafe

    If you live in New England and have not been to Canobie Lake Park, you must be living in a glass bubble and pretending to be a bad windshield wiper rubbing up against it. Way closer and BETTER than Disney World! What??? How???? (1) No Lines; (2) Close; (3) Less expensive; (4) Rides are just as good if not better; (4) DID I MENTION IT IS RIGHT HERE IN GOOD OLD NEW HAMPSHIRE!!!!

    My experience was awful. I am a nursing mom and went there with my 5 month old, 7 year old and my mom. I thought at first how wonderful they have a nursing station. I used it. In the meantime another mother was ranting and raving that I was in it without using a key. I had ni idea what she was talking about until I came out and two employees were waiting for me. The girl had such an attitude and told me I needed a key to use it. I tried to explain to her that it was unlocked and she told me it didnt matter there was signs posted. I brought my compliant to guest services who refunded me and my party but also had to escort us our like a criminal.

    Fun rides, amazing, family fun, good time to spend around friends and family. A bit pricey but cost doesn’t matter when it comes to making peoples faces happy. I really love the performances because they are amazing and full of talented people. Keep up the good work.
