  • You know I went in not expecting much ( Oregon's major attractions are natural typically) but I was very surprised with what they had to offer. I won't lie and say the place is amazing or state of the art but that's half the charm at this point. The other point they nail is the pricing. Everything is relatively cheap when you consider what traveling carnivals and larger theme parks charge for entry and refreshments. Basically you get what you paid for and no less. The only downside is the crew operating the log flume needs to have better sop's it seemed the log ahead of us was ahem overloaded... and it was unable to move up the elevator to the top causing a shut down of the ride. Not saying they(staff) did anything morally wrong just maybe the folks would have felt much less awkward being told to ride separate due to erm.. ride restrictions... instead of being the fat couple that bogged the log. Sorry but not sorry. Otherwise the kids liked it and that's the point
  • We had so much fun here!! My grands were in awe of it all. The adults had just as much fun as the kids. We only spent and hour and 45 minuets here and felt like we did most of what we wanted to do.
  • Pretty pricey for such a run down place. But, there's something magical about an old amusement park in the forest. My kids and I loved it, but I wished it was cheaper. However, it's cool that you can re-sell any unused tickets for full price on your way back out.
  • Charming and delightful! Great place for kids and kids at heart. Lots of shade and beautiful landscaping, plus fantastic building. Very hilly, though, so wear sneakers. Some parts are not handicapped accessible (due to the age of construction) but there is plenty for everyone to do. Rides do cost extra, but you could easily spend hours enjoying the park without the rides. (But the log ride is awesome!) Had a great time and will be back!
  • Wonderful enchanted world. If your on I-5 near Salem, you must go. Kids will love it. Adults as well. And it's not that expensive.

Where to stay in Salem

Catering to travelers stopping overnight en route to other destinations, a cluster of accommodations lines Route 5, which runs through the eastern suburbs of the city. These options consist mainly of chain motels and inns, which offer comfortable rooms and a free breakfast, but not much in the way of character. Accommodations in central Salem are few and far between, although you can find a mid-range hotel and a handful of bed and breakfasts along State Street.
