Last weekend we took the monsters on a getaway for some fall fun in New Hampshire. We headed up to Canobie Lake Park where they are holding their annual Screemfest. I honestly cannot rave enough about how much we love it at Canobie Lake. The grounds are beautiful and everything is just so kid friendly. As I mentioned in another post, there is something so awesome and adorable about being able to let your toddler ride a ride all by themselves and Canobie Lake has tons of attractions like that. There is so much to do, but you never feel overwhelmed by the lines even on a busy day. We didn’t wait more than a few minutes for any ride on a busy holiday weekend. The monsters may have a scary name but are actually kinda scaredy cats, so we didn’t get a chance to partake in the older kids Halloween rides, but just experiencing the park decorated in all its spookiness made for a fantastic day!
The park was fully decorated for both Oktoberfest and Halloween with great things like this giant spider and creepy creature below. Every time Lea saw this guy, she grabbed her face and yelled “Oh no!”
We started off our day on the racetrack per Zoe’s request. She was pretty excited to ride as you can see. I rode with Lea and Zoe with Dad. Lea awkwardly yelled “Vroom Vroom” at every employee we passed.
Next we went on the ride I hate the most….the Ferris Wheel. I hate heights and it makes me wanna die a little, so I didn’t get many pics on this ride, but we did get this awesome aerial shot of the grounds!
While I was having a panic attack in the sky, Zoe calmly read her map.
We stopped to take some silly Halloween pics next. I can’t believe Zoe managed to find a monster who matched her Tuff Kookooshka jacket!
We even found some decorations shouting out our hometown!
Two of the favorite rides of the day were the Dragon Coaster and this jungle ride. Both of these were visited numerous times.
The monsters then rode a ton of rides on their own. Canobie is amazing for us since it has so many rides that both Zoe and Lea can go on together that they both love.
Before we left, we posed for some more pics and even Zombie Bear, who we won at one of the games, got in on the action!
The monsters were getting tired after a long day, so we headed back to our hotel because at this point in the day I was hoping these guys really could beam Zoe up!
There are many more rides that Canobie Lake offers including some exciting coasters for bigger kids and adults. Screemfest also offers five spooky attractions that start at 5 p.m. with lines closing an hour before the park closes. I highly recommend you get your monsters there a.s.a.p!
