It brings joy to my kitsch lovin' heart to review the Enchanted Forest. Heck, I am pretty sure I thought it was kitschy back before I even knew that word! On our way to visit the grandparents in Salem my sister and I BEGGED to hit EF, even though it scared the poo out of me! (My younger sister was pretty brave) A giant slide in the old lady who lived in a shoe? yup. A dirty concrete tunnel to crawl through as an 'attraction' - YES! This is what constitutes an 'attraction' in Oregon, okay? Ain't no Six Flags 4-D coasters here. My favorite thing is the western town and the bad carnival rides. I actually disagree with the reviewer who said not to go here without kids. Its cheap and most certainly worth the pric...

If your kids are 2-8 years old then they will love this place. The tree shaded surroundings, fun wal...

You have to come here with the right mind-set. This is not the Pacific Northwest's "Disneyland." It is not even close to any Six Flags park you will ever visit. But what it is, is a very cute place to take kids who are open to exploring and finding the good in things. For California transplants, one of the things we miss the most are places like the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Oregon has nothing like that. But Enchanted Forest is very reminiscent of Fairyland in Oakland, CA and will remind some a bit of Happy Hollow and even Frontier Village. Think nostalgia and whimsy, let go of the shiny new roller coaster theme, and you will have yourself a good time here with your kids. (If you come here without kids, we...

For 2 adults and 2 children it's only $37.80... IF you have children that have no intention of riding anything.  Rides cost anywhere from $1.80/per person/per ride to $3.60/per person/per ride.  So if you want to ride the rides, you will probably want the ride bracelet, which brings the cost for a family of four to $137.60.  A one day park hopper at Disneyland for a family of four would be $384.00.  So no, this place does not cost as much as Disneyland, but at the same time, the park is nowhere near the quality of Disneyland+California Adventure.  Those that reside in Oregon basically have no other options for amusement parks, other than Oaks Park in Portland, or the annual State Fair.  The park is a little ...

I have to admit that I have a huge dose of nostalgia for this place, but seriously it is truly the cat's meow, the bee's knees, the schiznit! It's one of very few remaining roadside attractions that just keeps getting better. A family run amusement park that continues to maintain its original quirky charm, while adding on a few more technologically savv...

Enchanted Forest is Oregon's pinnacle of wacky roadside Americana of days gone by.  If you appreciate it for that you will not be let down at all.   I really appreciate that this place even exists, a man with a crazy dream realized.  How does it not get better? I went there recently (I had been there once before, nearly twenty years ago as a child) with a group of friends and we had a blast.  Crawled through tunnels, hung out in a teepee road down some logs and chilled out in the coolest Haunted House I've been in.   If you appreciate the bizarre and strange and have a love for quirky roadside Americana from days gone by this is your place.   The only tip I can reasonably offer is this: The Haunted House may...

Five stars for what it is - a family-run, family built, local theme park.  It opened almost forty years ago and remains an imaginative, inventive place to take the kids.  It''s hard to imagine such a place being built today - it's built on the side of the hill under huge trees, with steep twisty paths running throughout.  Many spots have little hidden passageways for kids to explore.  While entirely safe, the place was built during the era of lawn darts and kind of reflects that more casual spirit of not letting protection get in the way of fun.  Not everything is appropriate for toddlers. Very affordable - in fact, what's remarkable is how inexpensive the food and rides are.  The log ride is a lot of fun.  ...

Simply one of my favorite places on the earth.  Walking into little kitsch fairy-tales warms my soul.  I buy the whole thing... I even got the soundtrack. It is for kids and kids will love it (or 27 year olds who really love the idea of climbing down the rabbit hole... yes I did!)....

Overpriced for what it offers and is definitely in dire need of some cleaning up and TLC. BUT for some strange reason, I really think that kids like this place. If you watch the history of how this place came about, you will have more appreciation for it. Plus, there a...

Enchanted Forest is Oregon's budget answer to Disneyland. While the "Happiest Place on Earth" can cost a family several hundred dollars,Enchanted Forest is cheap,campy fun. The opening is a castle depicting Sleeping Beauty. The artwork clearly imitates Disneyland--to the point that the evil witch looks the same. There 's a cool maze,as well as a giant witch's head one can walk into... and go down a slide. The seven dwarfs' cave is cool with its glow in the dark artwork. There's a water and light show. As for the haunted house... it's creepy compared to the whimsical Disney one. That one freaked me out. Now that cheesy roadside attractions like Hobbitown USA on the Northern California coast and Thunderbeast o...
