Enchanted Forest

The "old" park is still going strong, with story book characters young children love and will remember for a long time. My children were amazed by all the little houses you could look into (some even enter) -- as I was as a child. My favorite was Peter's wife in a huge pumpkin (shell) house. A petting zoo and "Circus" are small but also fun. A mini train circles the park and is always a "must do."

The park is more known for its water park now, but admittance price is for both parks together. There are some old "carnival" type rides, including toddler rides, available, but not the main attraction. Paul Bunyan is now located inside the park just past the main gate. The park also has mini golf, bumper boats, batting cages, arcade/pizza shop and a very nice go kart track that is for older kids and adults (younger kids are allowed to ride).

Enchanted Forest

ENCHANTED FOREST theme park has a humongous PAUL BUNYAN statue in its parking lot! Much bigger than the other one listed for New York.
