Things to Do
The Magical Forest is a large forest of trees decorated in gorgeous lights and fun holiday decorations. As you walk through the forest there are areas sponsored by different local companies and it was so fun to see their unique decorations.
They also have five amusement ride options including a train, carousel, huge slide, spinning rides, plus mini golf. There is no additional cost for the rides — it’s all included in your ticket price.
Santa is at the Magical Forest on select dates.
They also have lots of food, treat, and hot chocolate options available.
Get there when it opens at 5:30pm (we like to get in line at 5:20pm) and go straight to the rides. We went on every ride twice with no wait times. Then, at 6:30pm when the ride lines started getting longer we walked through the Magical Forest.
Things to Note
It’s stroller friendly. The magical forest isn’t too big so it is walkable, but you can bring one if you would like.
