This place was great. We went with our 2 year old and she had a blast. She cried when it was time to go. Everyone (with the exception of 1 guy) was super friendly and helpful. The rides are perfect for kids to go on by themselves and parents can even go on some with them, but be careful they... More

This place hasn't changed since I visited with my family back in the 80's. Now, I have a 6 and 1.5 year old and it was ideal. The park is 90% in the forest, so we were in the shade on a hot summer day for most of it. The kids walked everywhere, there were no lines, and they could... More

After going back and forth to visit this park, we unfortunately decided to go with my 4, 2 and 8m old. I have to say it was a huge mistake. The rides were very old and safety was questionable. I did not allow my children to ride on the majority of them. Many of the rides used a small rope... More

Happy that we had a 2 and 4 year old who didn't know the difference of good and bad. It was good for them; that is the rides we allowed them to go on. 3/4 of the rides were dirty, they were strapped in with a dirty rope, they creaked and made noises. The place smelled musty it was damp... More

Place is good for small children but pretty worn out. Kids don't notice but needs some updating. Rides only for small kids.

So apparently my dad tells me he used to take us here when we were kids. And i would say nothing has changed. Nothing appears to be new and the workers are just there but... this place is perfect for young children. We were able to ride some rides with our 2 yr old so paying that $20 per person... More

This is a great little amusement park for children and adults alike. They have a magic show, and diving horses. Little ones will like the rides suitable for all of them and the interactive houses featuring different fairy tales and even a Santa Claus. They have a train and safari ride with plastic animals.

Our visit to Magic Forrest was wonderful for the two young children (2 years old) which were with us. They had a great time and the rides were an appropriate style for them. An adult was also able to ride almost all of the rides with them which was great. The theme elements of the park were showing their age... More
