Enchanted Forest Theme Park (Our First Weekend in the PNW)

Happy Friday everyone! Even though the weekend is almost upon us, I can't help but reminisce about our past weekend adventure because it was THAT awesome and way less hot.

Last week was our first official time riding solo in the PNW, my parents were the last ones to leave us Tuesday, it's weird not having them around anymore but nice at the same time knowing we can start our own adventures and traditions in our new state! If you don't know this about me already, I am a HUGE fan of the strange and outdated, teeter tottering on the verge of creepy so of course as soon as I found out about this place calledEnchanted Forest Theme Park I was obsessed! During our last visit to Portland they were unfortunately closed for winter season so we knew we had to visit while they're still open - I refused to pass up an opportunity like this again! This place reminded me so much of my beloved Rock City but times a million.

I did some research prior to our visit and what I really like about this park is it was just created by an average guy who one day thought to himself, hey, I'm gonna build a magical theme park on top of this mountain! And for that, I salute him. The park is still family owned to this day and it is quite apparent that a lot of love was poured into the making of this place.

The park is actually pretty sizable and is divided into themed sections including: Medieval, Wild West, Fairy Tales, and even a haunted house! you pay a flat admission fee of $11 and then extra for tickets to ride the rides.

There's a list of free shows throughout the day and we decided to catch Possibly Irish and they were AMAZING. It was the kind of music that made you wanna jump up and do a little Irish jig while simultaneously raising a pint of frothy Guinness.

I am already fantasizing about coming back here, I really wish they sold season passes because I would be all over that! (<= Psssst hey owners I am serious about this one).
