Enchanted Forest in Oregon Fundraising to Survive

Enchanted Forest in Oregon Fundraising to Survive

  Located just off I-5 in the rural, wooded area around Turner, Ore., Enchanted Forest is a family- attraction owned and managed by a family: founder and builder Roger Tofte's children Susan, Mary, and Ken co-manage the park, and three generations of family members work there. But, like so many businesses, it has been shuttered or had operations severely limited during the pandemic. If COVID-19 wasn't enough, the park, once it opened to reduced capacity, had to close altogether in September due to devastating forest fires in the area.The park hopes to reopen in 2021 and celebrate its 50th birthday on August 8th but in the meantime, its owners are struggling to survive, relying on fundraisers and park fan generosity.

Some older riders looking for more of a thrill enjoy the Kingdom Coaster and Merlin's Mayhem, the two largest rides in our park.

  Illinois Governor JB Pritzker announced a new phase for the state's mitigation plan on Thursday, a new "Bridge Phase" between Phases 4 and 5, that positively impacts events.   Illinois is currently in phase 4 of the Governor's restore Illinois Plan which places restrictions on outdoor events, gatherings, restaurants, amusement parks, and other businesses.  In phase 5 of the Governor's plan, all restrictions would be removed, and businesses would be able to open at full capacity without restrictions. Original gating criteria for the state to advance from phase 4 to 5 stated that “Either a vaccine is developed to prevent additional spread of COVID-19, a treatment option is readily available that ensures health care capacity is no longer a concern, or there are no new cases over a sustained period.”  Rather than advance directly from phase 4 to 5, the Governor introduced a new phase called the “Bridge Phase”, which is intended to be a ...   [read more]
