Enchanted Forest %28Oregon%29

The Enchanted Forest is an amusement park located in Turner in the U.S. state of Oregon, next to Interstate 5 just south of Salem. Creator Roger Tofte opened the park in 1971 after seven years of construction. Today, the Tofte family still owns and operates the 20-acre (8.1 ha) park.

History

In 2006, the Challenge of Mondor ride was added featuring dragons and monsters.[1] The original 1968 Humpty Dumpty display was damaged in July 2014 and was replaced in August 2014 with a new sculpture of the character.[2]

Attractions

The park is divided into various districts. Storybook Lane has attractions inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Mother Goose, and Grimms' Fairy Tales. Also featured are the English Village and its lighted fountain show, the Tofteville Mining Town, and a food service court featuring Bavarian architecture. Augmenting the park are attractions such as the Ice Mountain Bobsleds roller coaster, the Haunted House, and the Big Timber Log Ride, the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.[3] The Challenge of Mondor is an ETF Ride Systems indoor trackless interactive ride featuring dragons and monsters.[1]

Enchanted Forest also features a "Summer Comedy Theater," which showcases original musical plays based on classic fairy tales, written by Susan Vaslev (Daughter of Roger Tofte).

The park is open on a seasonal schedule: opening in late March, weekends only in April, daily from May to Labor Day, and then weekends only through September.
