“Stupid policies”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We are from out of state and took our kids there over the weekend. The pricing/ticketing is confusing and we bought too many tickets. We realized after we left the park that we had tickets left over and we could have sold the extra tickets back, but the management said it was too late. You have to sell back the same day and can't use them on another visit. Waste of money on an already overpriced park! Btw - the rides are the same ones they had there 40 years ago - probably not the safest place!

“Great Diversion for the Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

My friend and I both love Disney theme parks, but living in Oregon it is not always practical to get to them all that often. As such we decided to take a day trip to the Enchanted Forest. Let me start by saying we are both in our late 20's and have no children. We loved it! Hokey? Yes. Blatant rip off of some Disney rides? You bet. Cheap entertainment? Yep. Would we go back again? ABSOLUTELY!!! It was amazingly well done for what it is, a side show theme park. The cement work is fabulous, the animatronics were hilariously hokey. As long as you go in with an open mind, and a good attitude, you will have a blast. Legends of Mondor was our absolute favorite, we rode it probably a dozen times as trying to beat the high score is addictive.

“Graduation visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is a great place for kids under 6. Lots of walking and very cute themes. The rides were kind of a rip off, especially the height requirement for the kiddie train. They just want to get the adults to pay...which was ridiculous. Our grandson had a great time.

Haha what a day. The floating log ride and small roller coaster were very fun. Beautiful cement work everywhere.

“What place could be more fun?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Lovely and charming place to take the children. The rides and areas to walk through are so fun and terrific setting especially on a warm day walking around under the shady trees. I was surprised at the good performances in the plays we have seen there, the kids enjoyed them as did we adults.
The western town is fun to run around in and the rides are safe and fun as well.
I enjoyed watching the dancing water show, it was entrancing to watch the movements to music and the changing colors. It was also nice and cool inside on a very hot day which made it all the more enjoyable. You will need at least four hours to take it all in but can easily spend the whole day.
Food prices are reasonable and as you exit you go out through the shop, most of the novelty items are also of modest price so that children may have a nice remembrance item. This is our favorite place to take family who have children 12 and younger when they come visit.
