Canobie Lake does have a wide variety of food options. Dancing Bear Canteen (hot dogs, burgers, BBQ, chicken), Portofino (Italian), Poncho Cantina (Mexican), and Pizza Ria (pizza, subs, salads) cover must of the traditional foods you will find at parks. However, Minuteman Clams is a must for the seafood fan, including a fresh and made-to-order Pint of Fried Clams.
Weekend operations from late April to Memorial Day and from Labor Day to Halloween. Daily operations in June, July, and August.
Established Seasonal events
Screeemfest occurs on weekend in October.

The park has a couple of music/dance shows but nothing on a grand scale.
Canobie Lake Park is one of America's oldest parks with nice landscaping and well-established foliage. The signature coasters are a woodie that has its good and bad days and the Untamed Eurofighter. While the coasters are not abundant, there is a varied assortment of flat rides, including a well-done indoor scrambler in PsychoDrome. The park gets props for being one of the few where you can get fresh seafood. Many of the traditional flat rides can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Canobie is the park I visit a lot. They have fireworks every Saturday, and have lots of good rides. My favorite was Equinox, which is a KMG Tango. it got removed, though ;(. My new favorite is the Xtreme Frisbee, which is a Fabbri Frisbee. Definitely worth the visit.
Although it isn't bigger than six flags, this park levels off for thrill seekers and families. Amazing thrill rides like Equinox, Psycho-Drome (New and improved), Extreme Frisbee (run at an insane speed),Starblaster(Powere little S&S). They're are a lot more than that. Two coasters at the park stand out. Yankee Cannonball is a very smooth wooden coaster. packed with airtime. It also has buzz bars! Untamed is the only Euro Fighter in the North East. The park is packed with traditional and fun flat rides, some you can't find in most parks. This is a very clean park, free parking and the most friendly employees you can find. If you are in New England, make a trip here and enjoy a day on the lake!
Canobie Lake is a cute, traditional park. I went on a weekend in October and crowds were light; most rides were walk-ons, and I didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes for anything. The front and back seats of Yankee Cannonball were giving good airtime, and Untamed is a fun Gerstlauer with nice theming. The Caterpillar with a working canopy is also worth riding, as are a number of the park's traditional flats. The park is also pretty cheap and has free parking, and it has a great on-the-lake, wooded atmosphere. Definitely worth visiting.
This park is always underestimated. This is my #1 favorite park. As you can see from my name. Great coaster line up, fantastic flats for everyone,good water rides and prices that are very easy for your wallet. Also, FREE PARKING!
I want two hot dog stands and one drink stand. This park was the inspiration for RCT and walking around you can tell, but thats a good thing. They have an awesome but screwed up dark ride, a cool looking catepilar ride, and a variety of other flats you wouldn't expect. They also have indoor dining, old school arcade games, and a great laid back atmosphere. Truly an underated park.
I Love Canobie! I Go Every Year, And I Think It's Pretty Nice For A Family Run Park. It Has Some Great Rides (Starblaster, UNTAMED, etc.) Is Really Clean, Has Real Friendly Staff, And Has A Great Halloween Theme In October!
Before visiting, I hadn't heard too much about Canobie Lake, but from what I had heard I wasn't expecting too much. However, the park ended up being really nice. Not only does it have two above average coasters (a rarity for a small park), it also has a number of old-style traditional flat rides, one of the wettest water rides anywhere, and a very bizarre dark ride. The park is a traditional park, and this can be felt just by walking around and absorbing the atmosphere, and also has a little bit of quirkiness in it as well with the RCT-style food stands. It may not be worth a full day, but Canobie Lake is definitely worth a visit.
I really like the side of the park near the lake. It is beautiful, and the chair swings are amazing looking. Other than that the park is fairly average, although on the small side. Untamed adds a nice area to the park, but it still feels tiny and not worth the $32 admission price.
I have gone to canobie lake park about once a year and it has been great everytime. The rollar coasterss are nice, they are building a new one for the summer of 2011 that one looks great. The food is amazing and the rides are fun. It has its own small water park and a very cheasy but fun dark ride called the Mine of Lost Souls. The park is well kept with nice landscaping and a nice new renovated main entrence, the only bad thing is that in the summer it gets very crowded and the lines can take 15-30 mine especially fot the Log flume, Yankee Canonball, and Mine of Lost Souls.
After 5PM special.
Lots of rides for families.
Great old school classics.
Could use another signature attraction - "Untamed" was a good addition, but we feel the park needs one more ride like this.
