Peter the Pumpkin Eater

This family owned park has been around for years, and they slowly add to it. It is located on a forested hillside where children can go through fairy tale houses and there is usually a slide at the end. They had a silly Cinderella show with a twist. This is also home to the Ice Mountain Bobsleds, an unusual handmade roller coaster where the 'lap bar' is the plastic cover that goes over you. There is also a haunted house walkthrough, and a pretty good log flume. The new ride is a laser gun ride, which was pretty sophisticated compared to the rest of the park. The vehicles even went into a room, then backed out of it. There are also little shows here and there, such as a blackbird singing to smaller blackbirds in a pie. The theater was small and simple, but it's things like this that give these smaller parks character.

Forest shows
In the pizza restaurant was a small water show. There is also a local writer who writes fairy tales about the park's characters that you can only buy at the park. The park charges a small entrance fee, then you pay as you ride. Enchanted Forest is on a hillside, with a lot of hilly trails.

It is located right next to Thrillville USA, which is a collection of rides on a flat surface in front of a campground. Ironically, Thrillville went out of business. I guess the hills and moss covered forest filled with fairy tales beat out the fast spinning rides. Thrillsville is home to a rollercoaster, which was the Jet Star on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk until 1990.
