Enchanted Forest: A retrospect

These are the remains of a 1950s pre-ride-having amusement park. It was fairy tale themed so every building belongs to a different character. It was open from the 1950s and closed in the late 80s. I actually went here at least 2 times probably only a year or so before it closed when I was a little kid. These pictures are from 2005 to 2008 (about 2 months ago). They have since tried to remove a lot of the structures and rebuild them on a private farm where you can go see a remade Enchanted Forest. I went a while ago. Nothing beats the original though. This place was used briefly in the John Water's movie "Cry-baby" starring Johnny Depp for those who have seen that.
