My family has been coming here for the past 3 yrs and this place never disappoints. it is an eclectic gem of a park for kids. The rides are fun (Log ride,roller coaster and Modor) but it's the magical forest setting and the hidden nooks and crannies to explore that make it such an unique " enchanted" spot for kids. If you take the time to really look around, there are so many fun sites to see. my kiddos see new things each time we visit . make sure you don't miss the Water show ...it's very cool.

My great-nephew, now 10, looks forward to his annual trip to Enchanted Forest as a highlight of his summer. The only way to go is to buy the ride bracelet for any kids, so that rides are then unlimited. He loves the bumper cars - safer than most places with no head on crashes allowed. There are also two rides that give a minor thrill - the log flume and Ice Mountain and a 4th ride that is a dark shooting ride.

My favorite - and free with entrance - is the theater production. Always a very slapstick take on a fairy tale. The actors are really very talented.

You can bring your own lunch and snacks, though food service is available. Also lots of rides and slides for younger kids.

This is a family owned operation and is very family friendly. I highly recommend it.

I guess if the kids like it, then it was work the trip. We have driven past this place on several road trips in the past and it has always been a curiosity. I'm still in shock over how much it was just to walk through the gates and then pay again to go on some really old rides. The kids wished we had stayed longer. I would love to see this place get a make over.

A beautiful forested Oregon experience this place is a must if you have children. It is based on fairy tales and it seems like a story book land. Slides and rides and fun places to explore. It is a great break from the freeway and conveniently located just off Interstate Five. Next Door is a great winery for the adults to try a tasting or two.

Our friends set this up for us, so we didn't know what to expect and we all loved it! The owner of the park has essentially built everything from hand and you can see the love and dedication he has put into it. Our 5 & 8 year old girls loved it here. The 8 yr old went on all the rides over and over, so the wrist band was perfect for her. The littler one just did tickets for the kiddie rides, but loved seeing all the displays. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. There is a lot of walking and it is built on the side of a hill so is quite steep in parts. We spent 4 hours here and only left because it was closing. We also found all of the prices to be very reasonable from admission, to F&B to gift shop. The girls are already asking to go back! (even though we live 12 hours away!)
