Canobie Lake Park- Loads of Fun in New Hampshire


Canobie Lake Park is a great summer destination in New England. I took my two children and three of their cousins for a fun-filled day trip to the park. I like the fact that Canobie Lake Park is considerate of its visitors and  is a smoke-free location.

The kids were a variety of ages, but there are rides for every age at Canobie Lake Park. My kids really liked Jungle Bounce Ride. They wanted to ride it several times. The kids and their cousins also loved the Mini Dinos ride. Each seat actually has a buzzer that you can push and make the dino “roar”.

The Autobahn ride has many different types of vehicles for the kids to ‘drive’.  There are 16 vehicles including a motorcycle, sports car and the boys’ favorite- a fire engine.

While the park was fairly busy, we did not have to wait too long in any lines. There are benches throughout the park to take a break (or a photo!)  The gift shops in Canobie Lake Park had a good selection of necessities and fun souvenirs.

The whole family enjoyed the Crazy Cups ride and the Sea/Land Rescue plane ride, too. Canobie Lake Park has four water rides, including Castaway Island slides and Policy Pond Log Flumes (a cross between a roller coaster and water slide).

We took a break from the rides and enjoyed some good old fashioned carnival games like Milk Jugs, Whac-A-Mole, and Duck Pond. There are several stages throughout the park that offer live entertainment, so check the schedules when you go. A little concert breaks up the day and gives everyone a chance to sit for a little while.

While you cannot bring your own food into the park, you can go out to your car for a break – just get your hand stamped for readmission. There are many food options in the park, and the food provider, Sodexo, has a handy Food Allergy Guide on the park’s website. The kids loved having ice cream and frozen yogurt in the park.

If you want to spend a fun day out with the whole family, be sure to visit Canobie Lake Park!
