I went with family members and it was quite busy. They didn't have enough workers to run all the rides so you had to wait while the employee finished with one ride before you could ride something else. Some of the rides were pretty rough such as the roller coaster. It really throws you around and hurts if you are a little older.

It is a bit old fashioned but very young children wont see what the adults see. I don't think I will be returning any time soon but the kids do have fun.

we LOVE this place. We have 3 kids (2,4,7). This place is such a small slice of heaven for families with young children. YES things are old, and YES the rides all go round in a circle. BUT for children to be able to get onto a simple ride and more often than not even ride with MOM and DAD is special. We are season pass holders to Six Flags and if I had to choose 99 out of 100 times I would be at Magic Forrest with my kids. Clientel, Language, Dress, line waiting, food costs, etc. are all not family friendly at 6 flags. Even the gift shop at Magic Forrest has 1.00 toys for kids. WAHTEVER you do DONT miss Jimmy the Magician. He puts on 2 shows and both are fantastic. He makes your day while you are there and the time goes too fast as you are so relaxed at the forrest!!!

I love Magic Forest! I went there every year with my family when i was little. Now i bring my 3 year old son there every year. He loves it! Its never crowded, no long waits in line, its cheap, and the staff is very friendly. Yes its old and the rides close for a half hour each for lunch, but thats because the place is small and they cant afford to hire a ton of employees. Id rather spend the day there than at 6 flags where we spend 10 times more for my son to go on a few rides. Evey ride is perfect for his age group and he never gets bored!

We went here for the day. It was really reasonable priced and you could spend the whole day there. This park is perfect for smaller children, as some other viewers wrote older children would probably not have as much fun.

They had the whip ride and a nice ferris wheel which would be nice for the older ones.

There is a lot of steep walkways so it might be a bit difficult for an older person with a cane or wheelchair.

The magic show was really entertaining. The Magican picks people from the audience to help with the show so that was a nice treat for the kids. When the show is not going on we found him making balloon hats for $2.

They also had a diving horse show which we did not watch so I can not comment on that. It was nice and cool since all the trees are really tall.

As a child I use to go to this fun amusement park. It's still fun and cost efficient. It's a smaller park with fun rides. It's a nice day event.
