  • Trip Report The Enchanted Forest and its Storybook Land in northern Oregon

    After driving past the Enchanted Forest time and again without success to convince my friends that we should visit, I finally made it to this captivating little park and am thrilled to share my pictures with you.

    The Enchanted Forest is a little, mom and pop Storybook Land and then some. It started off small, but with a lot of love grew to hold entertainment options for the whole family. A stone's throw from the 5 freeway in northern Oregon and just a few miles outside of Salem, the Enchanted Forest was a treat.

    I knew from the moment I walked up to the main ticket booth (which looked a lot like the seven dwarfs' cottage) that I would adore the place. The staff was incredibly helpful, friendly, and so generous with their time. They told me and my partner all the attractions we should visit and sold us on a flat admission fee option with a few separate ride tickets on the side.



    We visited on a drizzly Saturday in May and the crowds were light. Signs pointed us toward the giant fairy tale castle to the left and we entered Storybook Land.

      Thanks for the trip report.

      I had heard about the dark ride and so was pleased to hear a report about it.

      Here was the only video I found of it. Looks pretty nice.

          I knew the first location looked familiar it's from the 1990 movie Cry Baby with Johnny Depp <3

          IMDb: Most Popular Titles With Location Matching "The Enchanted Forest - Route 40, Ellicott City, Maryland, USA"


          if anyone has seen the movie before the castle is the main focus for the scene...Johnny's opposite in the movie is singing mister sandman.

                Awesome report, and now sounds like definitely will have to go, judging by the peek-in's and the Haunted House description. Great stuff, thank you for sharing!

                      OMG! Thank you for posting this! I've been there as a child, and I've been trying to remember where this is and really warm memories came flooding back while reading this post! I particularly remember loving the alpine roller coaster. Very cool! I hope to make it back up there someday!

                        Wow. A trip report on Enchanted Forest. We live 20 minutes south of this sweet little park. The family makes a trip every summer that we are not headed to Disneyland. It really is a nice day. It often reminds me vaguely of Disneyland from when I was really little. In fact the gentleman that started the park worked for Walt before he moved to Oregon.
                        :lol:

                          Drove by a bunch of times and still haven't stopped there. Would definitely want to check out their haunted house.
