You might think that amusement parks are full of carnival rides and games, so how was one made for pinball lovers? Well, let me start off by saying yes, there are carnival rides and games, but this amusement park has a whole air-conditioned room just for spending time playing pinball.

Canobie Lake Park in New Hampshire offers a day full of family fun. There’s a water park, slides, a variety of rides (for all ages), live entertainment, arcades, and more. However, whenever I go to Canobie Lake park, I always have to stop by their pinball room.

In case you don’t know about this piece, I’m here to fill you in, as it’s somehow hidden.

In the building between Untamed and the Skater, you can find fast food, restrooms, and a place to escape the sun (we all need to sit in the shade at some point in the day). At the back of this building (next to the restrooms) there is a room full of pinball machines.

Canobie Lake Park has a wide variety of pinball machines, old and new. So you and your family (or friends) can enjoy a little friendly competition during your day. Unfortunately, I haven’t counted how many machines they have, but I can tell you there are a lot.

Choose from a newer pinball machine, like Stranger Things, or go old school and play Bugs Bunny.

Another advantage of the pinball room is that it is air-conditioned, so you won’t even sweat while playing. There are even a few comfy chairs for others to sit and watch you play.

If you choose to spend the day playing pinball, you don’t even have to worry about your devices dying, as there are special sockets throughout the game room.

Canobie Lake Park is full of fun, but my heart will always stay in their pinball room.
