Very disappointing!!! We called ahead and even emailed to make sure they were open but after driving 3 hours to get there they turned us away! They decided to close to the public and only open for school groups. So even though the Magic Forest...More

This is a great place to take young kids and spend an afternoon. Just ignore the shopworn figures, which make great photo ops, and let the kids ride the rides, which are from days gone by but great fun for them. We took our 5...More

Yes, it's an old venue. We prefer to call it "kitschy". There are things here you can't find anywhere else: old, cool rides...a DIVING HORSE...a great magician...decently priced food..and best of all: SHADE. FInally, you won't be dragging home kids with sunburns and heat exhaustion....More

We came for the put put. Course was excellent but items were dated. That being said they were repairing any issues as they came. Good course with a food challenge

The park is nice and clean. Most of the park is shaded under the trees. Great park for young kids. You don't have to wait in long lines for the rides. Our family went several times when our children were younger.

Took our granddaughter and great niece there in July. So much fun to watch them enjoy the rides and my husband to reminisce of his childhood visits there.

Very old and scary rides, dioramas that seem untouched since the 60's(not in a good way)... be warned. Go on a boat ride, or anywhere else. Brought out of town family here and were most alarmed at the shoddy conditions. Save your cash money. Even...More

Yes, they have quite a few picnic tables and I believe you are able to bring a cooler in. We brought food, not in a cooler, and didn't have an issue.
