There aren't any large-scale, destination theme parks (like Disney World or Universal Orlando) or huge, corporate amusement parks in New Hampshire (the nearest one is Six Flags New England in Massachusetts). But there is a nice collection of parks, many of which are family-owned and -operated (a rarity these days). Visitors to the state will find some wonderful places to visit during their vacations, including a couple of especially charming and wonderful theme parks in the lovely White Mountains geared especially for the pre-teen crowd. (That'd be Santa's Village and Story Land.) New Hampshire parks are listed in alphabetical order. 01 of 12 Block Party Social in Hookset Block Party Social An indoor family entertainment center, Block Party Social offers laser tag, a virtual reality experience, climbing walls, a ropes course, a zipline, an arcade, and billiards. There is also a cafe with a full bar. 02 of 12 Canobie Lake Park in Salem Canobie Lake Park A wonderful, traditional trolley park, and one of the few remaining family-owned, independent parks in the nation. Highlights include the Yankee Cannonball wooden coaster and Untamed, a vertical drop steel coaster. The park also offers some water park attractions and a lovely boat tour around its lake. 03 of 12 Chuckster’s Family Fun Park in Chichester Chuckster's An outdoor family entertainment center that is open seasonally, Chuckster’s attractions include mini-golf, a zipline, go-karts, batting cages, bungee jumping, a climbing wall, an aerial ropes course, and games. New for 2021, the park is offering bumper boats. 04 of 12 Clark's Trading Post in Lincoln Clark's Trading Post More a roadside attraction that's grown through the years than a theme park, Clark's nonetheless offers "Merlin's Mystical Mansion," a spinning room illusion attraction, bumper boats, an antique train, and other rides. The highlight is a trained bear show. Like a few of the state's other attractions, it's located in the White Mountains. Continue to 5 of 12 below. 05 of 12 Funspot in Laconia Funspot Billed as the world’s largest arcade, Funspot features hundreds of video games, pinball machines, skee ball, and other amusements throughout its sprawling, multi-level building. It also offers bowling, kiddie rides, bumper cars, mini-golf, bingo, and a restaurant. 06 of 12 Hampton Beach in Hampton There are no major rides at this lovely stretch of beach, but there are a lot of arcades, food joints, a couple of water slides, mini-golf, the Casino Ballroom, which features national musical acts, and other great honky-tonk attractions. 07 of 12 Mel's Funway Park in Litchfield Mel's Funway Park Attractions at the family entertainment center include bumper boats, go-karts, mini golf, batting cages, lazer tag, gem mining, bounce houses, and an arcade. Mel’s is open from April through November. In the fall months of September to November, the property becomes SpookyWorld Presents Nightmare New England and the Haunted Hayride. 08 of 12 Runway Fun Park in Swanzey The small park includes carnival rides such as a Tilt-A-Whirl, a Ferris wheel, a kiddie coaster, and a carousel as well as mini-golf. It s owners plan to add go-karts. ITs name is inspired by its location at a small airport. Continue to 9 of 12 below. 09 of 12 Santa's Village in Jefferson Santa's Village There have been a number of parks called "Santa's Village," but the New Hampshire one, which dates back to 1952, is the original. It has the perfect blend of authentic nostalgia and contemporary appeal. Young children and adults alike will find its charm irresistible. Highlights include Rudy's Rapid Transit Coaster and visits with a certain red-suited gent. Included with admission is the Ho Ho H2O Water Park (great name!). Santa's Village is open in the summer and fall as well as the weeks leading up to Christmas (of course). 10 of 12 Story Land in Glen Arthur Levine. Story Land is a beguiling and meticulous park themed to classic fairy tales. The log flume and other rides have been toned down for the under-12 set. It's loaded with charm and reasonably priced too. Highlights include a small, but especially potent wooden roller coaster, Roar-O-Saurus, as well as Dr. Geyser's Remarkable Raft Ride and the Bamboo Chutes log flume. (Don't worry; you won't get too wet on those last two.) 11 of 12 Weirs Beach in Laconia Brames, Inc. The lakeside amusement area offers a few attractions including bumper cars, arcades, mini-golf, and go-karts. Located on Lake Winnipesauke, there are scenic cruises and train rides available as well. 12 of 12 More Parks Edaville U.S.A. and Mattel Here are some resources to find nearby fun places and make travel plans: Water Country- A huge water park in Portsmouth, New Hampshire More New Hampshire water parks Massachusetts theme parks and amusement parks Massachusetts water parks Maine theme parks and water parks Was this page helpful?
