Castaway Island


Cano, the Goddess of Tides and Queen of Water reigned supreme. While traveling her coastal domain, a vision appeared in a tide pool telling her that her world would soon be lost. She was to take her three children, Earth, Air, and Fire, to a secluded oasis. Cano touched her finger to the sea and created an island. Over this island she placed an octopus for protection. She then captured the sun and placed it beneath the octopus to create paradise.

Cano needed to send word to her three children to come to the island. She carved directions to this new home on the Tablet of Earth, the Tablet of Air, and the Tablet of Fire.

Cano, Earth, Air, and Fire all lived on this island for thousands of years in peaceful harmony. Cano created a water oasis, Earth created beautiful grounds, Air created a summer breeze, and Fire created the food that would sustain them forever.

Thousands of years later the tablets were found. Archeologists have been working for centuries to decipher the location of this cast away island and they are close. The Octopus of protection and the Tiki Guardians will ensure this oasis is preserved for all of time.


Canobie Lake Park’s Castaway Island is expanding into a water park for 2018!!  We are adding a tidal river (think lazy river but with waves), a 60′ tower with three water slides, a children’s tots pool, 12 private cabanas, a new restaurant, a tiki bar, new changing facilities and more!!  This is all sitting to the left of the current Rain Fortress at Castaway Island with over 180 ways to get wet!


As we progress in the construction of our brand new water park expansion, we will post updates with pictures and videos below!


Construction is well underway of our new, expanded water park… CASTAWAY ISLAND! Foundations are being poured, the river trench has been dug, and framing has been started for the new buildings. We are loving this warm weather today… getting a lot done!!! Construction photos to follow in the coming week.  We are currently anticipating an opening day around Memorial Day Weekend and will continue to update as we know more.
