- When are the best days and times to come?
Although anytime is a great time to visit Canobie Lake Park’s Screeemfest, our experience has been that Fridays and Sundays (non holidays) tend to be less crowded than Saturdays. We also recommend arriving before 6 PM.
- How do I have the most affordable trip possible?
Look for our $4 off Friday admission discount coupons available soon at participating McDonald’s® Restaurants and Market Basket® Supermarkets.
- Do you have Group Rates?
Yes! For 25 or more attendees, we have great group rates and specials.
- Is there a parking charge?
Parking is always FREE at Canobie Lake Park.
- Can I bring food and beverage to the Park?
Unfortunately, no. Outside food and beverage is not permitted through Park gates.
- Can I wear a costume?
Although this is the Halloween season, we do not permit costumes or make up through our gates or in the Park. Don’t worry… we have plenty of monsters & zombies, but please leave the haunting to us.
- Are the haunts wheelchair accessible?
Our haunted attractions are designed to accommodate conventional wheelchairs and Electric Service Vehicles – although certain elements/effects will require the use of an alternate pathway.
- Do I have to pay extra for haunted attractions?
There is no additional charge for UNLIMITED visits to any of our haunted houses (The Canobie Lake Hotel, Carnivus, the Village, Facility 235 and The Culling, as well as our family Petting Zoo). We do have scary thrills that may have an additional fee such as the “Last Ride.”.
- Are the haunts scary?
The short answer is, yes of course they are – that is the idea, after all. We suggest parental guidance for children 13 and under.
If you wish to enjoy the haunted attractions without the worry of everything jumping out at you, you may elect to purchase a “Monster B’Gone” necklace at the entrance of the Park or at the entrances of the haunted attractions.
- Are the haunts for kids?
Certainly not the little ones. We recommend parental guidance for children 13 and under.
- What is there for kids?
We have plenty of kid-friendly fun, including our Petting Zoo on Saturdays and Sundays thru October 28, 2018 from 1:00 to 5:00pm! We will also be operating a majority of our “kiddie rides,” including our Kiddieland area. Don’t forget to watch for our monster parade on Saturdays and Sundays (no parade on Fridays) which begins at 5:30pm through the Park.
- What types of special effects are in the haunted attractions?
Our haunted attractions are designed for all five of the senses. Carnivus and the Village have a “Claustrophobia” effect where the “walls” are literally pushing against you. The Canobie Lake Hotel has a “claustrophobia” effect where the “ceiling” pushes you towards the floor. Strobe lights and Fog effects are used in multiple areas throughout each haunt and throughout the Park.
- Haunted houses are too scary… what else is there for me to do?
If you wish to enjoy the haunted attractions without the worry of everything jumping out at you, you may elect to purchase a “Monster B’Gone” necklace at the entrance of the Park or the entrances of the haunted attractions.
If haunted houses are just not your style… you still have come to the right place! We have plenty of rides (including our wild roller coaster, UNTAMED, and our cool new ride ICE JET), games, food and live entertainment for you to enjoy, plus our live shows and popular Rocktoberfest celebration in the middle of the Park! That’s a lot of fall fun all in ONE location!
- If I get scared, can I get out?
Yes. If you are inside of a Haunted Attraction and feel that you cannot continue, approach the nearest actor and request to exit the attraction. The actor will direct you to the nearest emergency exit and will escort you out of the attraction.
- Will the actors touch me?
No. And we also ask that you DO NOT TOUCH THE ACTORS.
- What live entertainment do you have?
Don’t forget to watch for our monster parade which begins at 5:30pm through the Park.
- When do ticket sales, rides, and haunts close?
The last ticket will be sold at approximately 1 hour before the scheduled Park close. Please note that the earlier that you arrive, the better opportunity you’ll have to take advantage of your favorite attractions. All rides and haunts close at the published closing times, weather permitting. This means that ride and haunt lines may close earlier than Park closing based on crowd conditions.
