Canobie Lake Park has sent us a press release regarding their special offerings for the Summer.

It’s summertime and the coasters are rolling at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire. The Park’s newest roller coaster, UNTAMED, is living up to its name and thrilling riders from all over New England, while the ever-popular Castaway Island water play complex provides over a hundred ways to get wet. And that’s just for starters.

Canobie’s “Summer of SuperStars” live tribute shows are appearing now and continue through Labor Day. The Park’s historic and recently renovated Dancehall Theater will host the return of two enormously popular live shows, a “Tribute to Michael” as well as “THE KING LIVES®” tribute. New for this season is the “Tribute to Janet” show featuring signature songs and dance moves on the Park’s Midway Stage, while country fans can enjoy a “Tribute to Tim” appearing on Canobie’s Village Stage.

Granite State Zoo’s “Wildlife Encounters” brings a menagerie of exotic and interesting animals to the Park in an interesting and educational show for the entire family. Complete show information and performance times can be found on the Park’s website at

To celebrate the Fourth of July weekend, Canobie Lake Park will present three consecutive nights of dramatic fireworks displays that will be choreographed to music over Canobie Lake. The fireworks begin at approximately 9:30 PM on July 2nd, 3rd and 4th, weather permitting. Fireworks displays are also scheduled for every Saturday night at the Park through September 3rd, weather permitting.

In addition, the crowd-pleasing Canobie Talent Search will be presented every Thursday night as well as weekly Friday Night Dance Parties.

Canobie Lake Park is a quick trip from most points in New England and one low admission price includes all rides, attractions and live shows all day, and there are reduced evening rates. For an even better value, Canobie Lake Park discount admission coupons can be found at participating McDonald’s® Restaurants, Market Basket® Supermarkets, and Tedeschi® Food Shops all over New England while supplies last.

Canobie Lake Park has sent us a press release regarding their upcoming events for the Fall.

If you’re not ready to let summer go just yet, Canobie Lake Park has some good news for you. The Park remains open every day and evening through Labor Day with their full complement of rides, games, attractions and live entertainment. It’s your last chance to catch Canobie’s live tribute shows, including the extremely popular Tribute to Michael, since the curtain comes down for the season on September 5th.

The fun doesn’t stop at Labor Day, though. Canobie is open weekends during September and October with the Park’s seven-weekend Oktoberfest celebration kicking off on September 17th. The festivities include a beer garden, traditional German fare, music and live entertainment. Canobie’s newest live show, a Tribute to Madonna, also begins on September 17th and runs through October 30th.

Then SCREEEMFEST adds some fear to all the fun, haunting Canobie Lake Park every weekend from September 30th through the end of October. And there’s plenty to “screeem” about. Just when you catch your breath from the excitement of Canobie’s newest roller coaster, UNTAMED, which will be open throughout both events along with many other rides, there are four terrifying haunts to keep you screaming.

There will also be Halloween games, zombies and monsters lurking about, “haunted” fireworks displays every Saturday night in October, and even more live entertainment. The one and only MINI KISS, a nationally known act, will be performing a tribute to the legendary rock band all during Screeemfest.

Canobie Lake Park is presenting both major events for one, low admission price that includes all haunts, live entertainment, operating rides, fireworks and more. For Park hours, more information about events and directions, visit

Canobie Lake Park has sent us a press release regarding their SCREEMFEST event held this October.

Canobie Lake Park SCREEEMFEST will be haunting Salem, New Hampshire, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening through October 30th. The Park’s seven-week Oktoberfest celebration with traditional German food, music and seasonal beers also continues along with SCREEEMFEST, providing visitors to the Park with quite a variety of entertainment – and food – options.

According to Chris Nicoli, Canobie’s Marketing and Entertainment Manager, the SCREEEMFEST scare factor has been ramped up this year. There are two new haunts, the Cannibal Lake Haunt Zone and the Demons of Darkness haunted house, along with the Dead Shed, The Village and Merriment, Incorporated. "We offer quite a unique Halloween experience to our guests. Where else can you scream in haunted houses then scream even harder on rides like our new roller coaster, Untamed?" said Nicoli.

Canobie has added a "haunted" fireworks display each Saturday night, weather permitting, named "Terrify the Sky." Live entertainment this year includes the national act MINI KISS, the Park's new Tribute to Madonna show, Alan Kaye as Ozzy at the end of October, as well as walk-around monsters and characters, a nightly monster parade and Oktoberfest "oompah" bands. For the younger set, Canobie has transformed its Kiddieland area into the Pumpkin Palace with pumpkins, cornstalks and family-friendly fall decorations, along with many kiddie rides.

One low admission price includes all haunts, rides, live entertainment, fireworks and entrance to Oktoberfest. Discount coupons to Canobie Lake Park SCREEEMFEST and Oktoberfest are available at participating Tedeschi Food Shops®, Market Basket® Supermarkets and McDonald’s® Restaurants throughout New England while supplies last.

I've noticed that just like last year, the Cannonball is only running one train--this is just from what I've seen, maybe others have been on days where both are running.

Is there a reason that one train operation for this coaster has become the norm? I mean, the ride itself isn't very long, so even if the queue is full, it's not *that* bad, but still, I don't get why they haven't been using the 2 cars. It's almost always one of the longest lines from opening til closing, so it would seem to make sense to use both. This may sound like a dumb question, but could it be that using one train causes less stress to the ride since it's so old?

^Wasn't there a collision some years back? I did hear that the cost to replace the brakes would be exorbitant due to all the necessary changes, unfortunately.
