Muffler Man Forest

This could be a duplicate report, but there's a whole forest full of muffler men at the Magic Forest on Rt. 9 south of Lake George Village. There's a Bunyan at the entrance, a clown, a couple others in various disguises throughout the park. Add the rides from the 50s and 60s and you have great fun for ages 1-10 and 35 and up...

Yes, we've had earlier reports, but it's good to hear they are still lurking in Magic Forest, also home to a diving horse.

Muffler Man Forest

Six in all. There are four at Magic Forest: "Pecos Bill," in chaps with lariat; Amish Farmer (a "Halfwit" type); a clown, with his left arm twisted; and the Paul Bunyan.

There's a Bunyan about ten miles west of that, on the north side of the road. He's missing his right arm and leaning up behind a tree. His sign says "Campsites. Swiss Trail," but I was told it's the Lake Luzerne campground. There is another Bunyan back in Lake George, at the Around the World Golf Course, standing near a mini pagoda and a mini Kremlin.

Muffler Man Forest

I believe there are 3 M-Men in the Magic Forest amusement park, located in Lake George, NY. One, near the entrance, is like a Paul Bunyan type. One is dressed up in clown garb with "billowy" pants - this one's near the center of the park. The last one is off to the side with no major changes done.
