Enchanted Forest celebrates its 35th anniversary

Posted Tuesday, August 8, 2006 9:26 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Thirty-five years ago, you could get into Enchanted Forest for $1; today, it's a few dollars more. But the park, which celebrates its 35th anniversary today, is a bit bigger, growing from the Storybook Trail to encompass 20 of the 25 hillside acres owned by the Tofte family, and it still is growing.

Ice Mountain Bobsled is one of the best Steelies Around! (I rank it No. 4 in my Top ten Steel Non-Looper under 100' high list -Behind Seabreezes Bobsled, Disneyland's Matterhorn and Magic Kingdom's (Florida) Space Mountain! :) )*** This post was edited by Borntocoast 8/8/2006 3:01:23 PM ****** This post was edited by Borntocoast 8/8/2006 3:01:44 PM ***

Their walk thru haunted house was possibly the best I've been thru at a park.

The park itself is amazing, or at least it was in 1999. The whole place is essentially a figment of Roger Tofte's imagination, and while it doesn't have a whole lot in the way of rides, it is a really neat place. It would be even neater for a very young kid, but even for a jaded coaster nut like me, it was a really cool place.

Many congratulations to the Tofte family on 35 imaginitive years!

My pleasure, 'gator! :)

I've introduced many family and friends to this park, all of whom were surprised at how much fun they had there, and that was before their new dark ride. With the addition of another major ride in 3 years, and the re-working of the children's ride area this winter, this is surely "the little park that could"!

Have you posted to youtube yet? ;)
