Canobie Lake Park has sent us a press release about the return of the park's SCREEMFEST Halloween event!
Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire, is the place to be for “screeems,” thrills and chills during the Park’s SCREEEMFEST event, each weekend from September 24 through October 30. Canobie offers one of the best varieties of fall entertainment in all of New England.
There’s fun by day with rides, games and plenty of family-friendly options, including a petting zoo on Saturday and Sunday afternoons through October 23rd. Then at night, SCREEEMFEST adds fear to all that fun through October 30th with five terrifying haunted houses, including two NEW haunts this year: Carnivus where evil clowns still rule the long-dead carnival, and Virus: Quarantine, where no one is immune. There are roaming “monsters” and a monster parade throughout the park, Halloween-themed games and much more.
You can also enjoy a variety of live entertainment at no additional charge during SCREEMFEST. Canobie’s ROCKtoberfest event features a different legendary rock tribute band each weekend during SCREEEMFEST featuring professional touring bands. Also appearing is the live and freaky “SwingShift SideShow,” performing strange feats of physical daring that are truly not for the faint of heart.
A “Tribute to the Life and Legacy of Prince” show will be presented from September 24 to October 10, while “Tribute to Michael: Ghosts,” will thrill audiences from October 14 to October 30.
One low admission price for Canobie Lake Park SCREEEMFEST includes all haunted houses, operating rides, ROCKtoberfest, the Petting Zoo, live entertainment and more. For Park hours, show schedules, directions and information about group discounts, visit canobie.com.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
I'm shocked not to see it posted here, but Canobie submitted plans with the Town of Salem two weeks ago to build a river rapids ride in 2017 called the New Hampshire Explorer! The ride will be located next to Untamed and will fill out that section of the park nicely. Based on the plans submitted, it looks like the ride will have some pretty good theming with it as well.
I'm really excited to see a new river rapids ride. I was almost certain the park's next addition would be a water ride, but I was dead wrong what kind. I was expecting some water slides by the park's Castaway Island water play area.

It will give me more reasons to ride the Boston Tea Party for one. I like that ride, but hate getting soaked for that one drop. If this rapids ride gets me drenched, which if it's anything like the one at Compounce it will, I've got nothing else to lose at that point.
