Ghost Adventures: Enchanted Forest
Zak and the crew investigate strange phenomena at a beloved amusement park in Turner, Ore. The discovery of a bloody battle on the grounds of the park leads Zak to believe a residual energy could be responsible for the manifestations.
Enchanted Forest, near Salem, Ore., has cast a spell on millions of children and families over the past nearly five decades.
Stroll Through the Park
The theme park is home to storybook-themed attractions and some very disturbed spirits. Take a stroll down the winding pathways, and who knows who (or what!) you'll encounter.
Enchanted Forest was the dream of Roger Tofte. In the 1960s, with four young children of his own, he realized there was little to do for families in the Greater Salem, Ore. area, so he purchased land off of I-5 and began construction on the park in 1964. He worked by himself at night and on weekends, and it took seven years to construct. On August 8, 1971, the park officially opened, and as thousands flocked to the theme park, the empire grew, eventually adding new sections, rides and attractions.
The entire property is about 20 acres, so there’s plenty to explore. Bonus: the team has it all to themselves.
Meet Roger Tofte
The man behind it all: Roger Tofte, the creator of Enchanted Forest, still rolls around the park on his moped, doing whatever he can to keep his park running smoothly.
Aaron and Amy
This place is deeply personal to Aaron, because he and his sister Amy used to come here as kids. They both experienced a presence they can’t explain.
In 2014, Humpty Dumpty took a great fall after a couple of men tried to climb it. Roger did what none of the king’s men could: put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
Enter if you dare: The Witch's Head is a favorite among the numerous attractions.
Try to stand up straight in the Crooked House! When the park is quiet and closed, employees have heard strange sounds like growls and disembodied footsteps. They’ve seen apparitions, and felt something touch them when they know they should be alone.
The Big Timber Log Ride is a crowd favorite — but are park patrons the only beings occupying this ride?
The park’s Haunted House may be more than just a spooky attraction. Aaron remembers feeling an odd presence every time he entered the house.
Ghost Adventures Crew
This place is unlike any amusement park you’ve visited before — that’s a promise.
