Canobie Lake Park's opens and one-Day Sale Set For April 27th

Canobie Lake Park’s 2013 Grand Opening and One-Day Sale Set For April 27th

Preview of the Park’s 111th Season

SALEM, NH – If you’re thinking about summer already, here’s some good news: So is Canobie Lake Park. The big gates swing open for 2013 on Saturday, April 27th, weather permitting.

One-Day Sale

The Park’s Annual One-Day Sale will also be held on Opening Day when 2013 admission passes will be sold for the reduced price of just $27 each. This represents a savings of $8 off the regular season general admission price. One-day sale purchases may be made either at the Park on April 27 (with a rain date of Sunday, April 28) or, new for this year, one-day-sale passes are available for purchase online by visiting the online store link on Park’s website between 3:00AM April 27 and 3:00AM April 28. There is no limit on how many passes can be purchased at the sale price, and each pass is valid on any one day during Canobie’s 2013 operating calendar.

Canobie’s Newest Thrill Ride, EQUINOX

The Park surprised guests last October when it launched its newest thrill ride, EQUINOX. The ride is ready and waiting to elicit plenty of screams from those daring enough to climb aboard this season, taking them on a breathtaking flight of almost 75 feet into the air. A huge boom lifts 24 passengers into the sky as they sit 8 apiece on three huge “arms” that revolve around a center hub. The thrills increase exponentially as the boom rotates and each arm in turn begins to flip independently. The only way to describe EQUINOX is intense and a perfect complement to Canobie’s other thrills like their newest roller coaster, UNTAMED.

One of New England’s Best Values for Family Entertainment

Canobie Lake Park is a short gas-friendly trip from most points in New England, and parking is always free. A single, low admission price includes over 85 rides – including thrill rides, family and kid-friendly rides – attractions and scheduled live shows. Castaway Island, Canobie’s water play park that opens Memorial Day Weekend, is also included with admission. Visit the Park’s website for hours and full information about attractions and scheduled events.
