Taking my son on our annual birthday trip. We stopped at the Enchanted Forest on the way to Bend, Oregon.
The Enchanted Forest is a small amusement park near Salem, Oregon. But’s it is quite unlike any other amusement park to which I have been. It’s smaller, built in a forest, less focused on rides, and more focused on something unique.
And, it was the vision of one man, Roger Tofte, back in the early 70’s, who wanted more fun things for his kids to do. Here’s the history.
Kudos to Mr. Tofte for an inspired vision, a unique idea, and dedication to giving something to the children of western Oregon.
Talk about believing in your own dream despite the odds! What an inspiring story.
Yes indeed. The park is quite well done. He and his family have certainly put their all into it. My son and I were quite impressed.
