Enchanted Forest, part 3

Here is the last part of our photo blog of Enchanted Forest theme park. At this point in the park we had exited the fairy tale land and entered what would be known in Disneyland as Frontierland. It's really well done with a main street and shooting gallery and everything you'd expect from an old ghost town type of place.

Past the "Frontierland" area, we pass the Haunted House which looks a whole lot like the Haunted Mansion. Libby wouldn't even look at it. Mae walked up to the front door, but then turned around and walked back, so I don't know if this is a ride or a walk-thru attraction.

Past the Haunted House we enter a cute area with 5 little kid rides that I can recall. There's bumper boats, bumper cars, a ferris wheel, the frog hopper, and a train.

Libby and Mae did the bumper boats 3x I think
Now, the train is very much like the Casey Jr train as well as the Storybook Land canal boats in that it winds around a miniature storybook land village.

I feel like the tiny signs could be improved, but unlike Dland, there's no narrator to tell you what's what

At this point in our trip I put down my camera because we were entering the area with the big kid rides. So I'm afraid that other than this log ride photo (there's a log in there) I have no other pictures.

The log ride is short, but typical. It's lots of fun and we did it 3 times. There's also a bobsled ride that I probably like better than the Matterhorn. The bobsleds are fully enclosed and you really do need to lay down, just like a real bobsled. The 3rd big ride is similar to the Buzz Lightyear ride, but this one is Lord of the Rings themed. Libby thought it was scary. She refused to use her laser and she got 0 points.

We ate lunch at the Jolly Roger Inn which has terrible pre-packaged food, but has a free dancing waters show that runs every 7 minutes. It was really very delightful since I loved the dancing waters show at the old Disneyland Hotel.  The kids really liked it too, but not enough to watch it twice.

Hope you enjoyed our Enchanted Forest photos!
