The Eagle-Tribune

---- — 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.

The Canobie Institute: Over 15 New Educational Programs for School Groups

This spring, the Park launched The Canobie Institute which provides over 15 educational programs with real-world projects, physics and science experiments, live educational presentations and course work designed to complement what students learn inside the classroom. Canobie becomes an interactive learning environment that provides teachers with some rather unique tools to reinforce a variety of math, science, creative, history, biology and many more principles. Complete information about the programs offered can be found at institute.canobie.com.

Corporate and Other Group Discounts

For corporate, small company and summer outings for camps and other groups, Canobie Lake Park offers a variety of discounted programs designed to provide employees or group members with a memorable summer experience. There are catered and non-catered offerings, a Consignment Tickets program, as well as an “e-Ticketing” store option which provides a turn-key way to offer Canobie Lake Park discounts to employees. Complete details are available on the Corporate/Group Outings section on canobie.com.

Specials Throughout the Season

Canobie Lake Park also features special discount event days, including Mother’s Day and Father’s Day specials when Moms or Dads receive free admission and a free lunch on their respective days. Armed Services Appreciation Days will take place over Memorial Day Weekend when armed services members can purchase Park admission for just $10. Canobie also has special days for Scouts, sports and other teams, and seniors. Details about these specials, as well as upcoming availability of discount coupons at partner locations, will be available on the Park’s specials page at canobie.com.

LIVE Entertainment: SuperStars Return for 2013 Season

Canobie’s Summer of SuperStars live tribute shows will rock the Park’s historic Dancehall Theater and Midway Stage once again this summer. The new Tribute to Katy show makes its debut this year and the enormously popular Tribute to Michael and Tribute to Bieber return along with “Forever Kings,” a show combining Canobie’s legendary Tribute to Michael and Elvis. The Park’s “Wildlife Encounters” family educational show, featuring live exotic animals, also returns. Visit canobie.com for details on the complete 2013 live entertainment line-up and schedule.
