"There's a ride called The Drop Zone, which is a tower ride but, instead of shooting you up, they drop you down. Total free-fall until about half-way down. Not a crowded park, there were hardly any lines. It was awesome!" - Dale Enomoto, Facebook.

"It's fun, affordable, has tons of rides, and you'll rarely be waiting in lines. It has even got a Boston Tea Party-inspired ride and a dark ride through a haunted mine. I go to Canobie at least once a year, it's a really fantastic little place!" –Courtney
