Can you handle Screeemfest at Canobie Lake Park?

I have been going to Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH since I was a little kid. Now it is so much fun to take my kids. We recently went for Screeemfest and had so much fun.
It was a perfect fall day. The lines weren't bad throughout the park and at night there is an option to experience scares. If you don't want to go in the haunted houses or be scared that is ok too even if you are there are Screeemfest starts.  You can also buy a necklace to keep spooks away and you can avoid the haunted attractions.  But if you like to be scared it is the perfect place!
We went to the park near opening time at 1 pm to get a jump on all the rides.
 Star Blaster was a big hit.
We also went on one of the newest rides, Ice Jet.  It was so much fun.  It goes forward and backward.
We also rode the Caterpillar which is one of my childhood favorites.
What gorgeous views from the Sky Ride.  You can see all the rides here.
  It may look very quaint and pretty but just wait till the darkness begins.
 There were haunts at every turn.  But don't worry they were all stationary.
 The haunts that don't move are fine with me.
So cool looking.
 
I like this guy.
 
If haunts aren't your thing not to worry, there is also a petting zoo for the kids.  It is tucked in the back corner of the park behind Untamed.  It is open on Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 pm.

I love these two!  They are so adorable!
 There were also some non scary characters hanging around and they did a show.
 Molly the mouse was even dressed up.
But then night fell...da da da!  There were spooks that came out too scaring people.  We mostly saw them at the front of the park and near the haunted attractions.  One guy had a chain saw and it was funny to hear people running as he came near them.  You can buy a glow necklace at the front of the park for $5 so that the spooks won't come up  to you.
There are 5 haunts at night.  You can see the details here of all of them.
 We took a walk around the park at night but the kids were too scared for the haunted houses, and if I am honest so was I! The Village looked like another spooky area that would bring the scare.
So many scares.
They even have a little parade of haunts at night that we saw.
 Here is some video when they made it to the front of the park.

You can have a spooky good time.  If kids are too afraid make sure to buy the necklace and just don't go in the scares.

Enter if you dare!
