Agreed. The water park has proven to be a big success for the park, it would be shocking to see them not announce the corkscrews closure either this coming season or next. That spot could easily house another lazy river, pool and a couple water slide towers. I think the best place for their next coaster is the Tall Timber Splash spot with it flowing into their side parking lot.

^ I agree Tall Timber Splash is sort of redundant now with the water park. Although I wouldn't be surprised if their next big dry park addition goes on the other side of the park where the river rapids ride was supposed to go.

That would be plausible but at the same time the property line back there is right next to the neighborhood. It will be interesting to see if they'd put another roller coaster back there or go with something completely different.

Canobie is targeting to reopen on Thursday July 16 per their Facebook page. Reservations will be required. And all season passes were extended through the 2021 season.

I did notice that Canobie dramatically cut their hours. They don't appear to have Screeemfest planned this year and the park is open 10:30-6 pm everyday. Typically Canobie closes at 9 or 10 pm daily. The biggest issue with the shortened season is that the basic season pass is blocked out all weekends in July and August. I'm hoping they revisit this policy for the 2020 season since the reservation system should cut down on their fear of overcrowding the park. For people such as myself that planned to visit after work or early/late in the season, the modified hours could make it hard to use the pass in 2020, but I get these are unique times.

WE HAVE AN OPENING DATE! That’s right folks, we’re back! Canobie Lake Park is targeting Thursday, July 16th as opening day for 2020! We are spending this time preparing the Park for our new normal. Please understand that this will include new policies, procedures, online reservations, and health & safety protocols designed to create a safe space where families & friends may enjoy their time together in an open-air, outdoor environment.

That's a shame, Canobie is wonderful at night. I guess technically less hours=less exposure but if you're already over 7 hours then what's a few more going to do

^ I think it's more from a staffing perspective.

No one who traveled outside of NH/VT/ME in the past 14 days will be admitted. Guess the state two miles to their south is out of luck.

^ Where did you see that? The site I've been using doesn't mention any quarantine entering New Hampshire.

My biggest issue is the self quarantine upon returning to Massachusetts from any state. I'm willing to do it for a more distant park/longer trip, but I'm not willing to do that after a daytrip to my local park. So I'll wait until Massachusetts lifts that restriction.

It's in the amusement park reopening guidelines from Sununu that were sent out yesterday. That and rides have to be deep cleaned every two hours and riders have to sit 6 feet apart, so that means Cannonball will probably have like 6-10 riders per train lol.
