AS THE LEGEND GOES…
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!
Note: There is currently no exact opening date for the new sections of Castaway Island, but we will update here as we know more.
As we progress in the construction of our brand new water park expansion, we will post updates with pictures and videos below!
A lot of progress now. The buildings are mostly up, the Outrigger Grill is looking great!
Water slides are up!! Plus, today feels like we should be open… get the hose! Coming this summer!
This is really starting to look like a water park! Slide towers are up, restaurant roof is being installed, river is underway!
Construction is still on target and it is starting to actually look like a water park! Plus all the water slides have arrived are being assembled as we speak. This better weather is definitely putting us in the “water park mood”!
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.
