Create Fairy Tales with The Enchanted Forest

“The Enchanted Forest is no ordinary forest. No, this forest attraction is writing real life fairy tale stories thus creating a library of childhood memories. During the adventure the “eh Team” brothers caught themselves being little kids in big kid bodies.”

The “eh Team” of ehCanadaTravel.com were greeted at the entrance of the Enchanted Forest (www.enchantedforestbc.com) by “Humpty Dumpty Sitting on the Wall” and then welcomed by the fire and brimstone of “Merlin” as he waved his magic wand from his fairy tale castle. The “brothers of eh” felt they had died and had gone to fairy tale heaven.

The forest and fairy tale attraction, affectionately known by children from around the world, as the Enchanted Forest is located in the Kootenays of British Columbia, Canada near the communities of Sicamous and Revelstoke.

The Enchanted Forest is no ordinary forest. No, this forest attraction is writing real life fairy tale stories thus creating a library of childhood memories. The forest itself is a playground for the imagination complete with 350+ hand crafted fairy tale figurines – most heroes and some villains – surrounded by interactive fantasy huts, castles, dungeons and more. The castles, homes and huts are so interactive that little ones can climb on, enter into and snoop around as their curiosity grows. During the adventure the “eh Team” brothers caught themselves being little kids in big kid bodies on many occasions.

The “eh Team” walked the paths and talked the talk with their fairy tale hereos. Colin sat down with the “3 Bears” and had a bowl of porridge. He then meandered over to the “Old Lady and the Shoe” and attempted to go down a slide. Greg tried to shmooze a “Leprechaun” for some of his lucky charms and, we are pretty sure, we caught him trying to put the moves on “Snow White”. Both brothers enjoyed a debate about their favourite “Winnie the Pooh” characters. Colin went with “Eeyore” and Greg was a self confessed “Tigger” fan.

Included in the Enchanted Forest attraction is a “Nature Boardwalk Trail”. The walking trail leads down to a wetland area and – from there – a boardwalk trail takes you out onto the wetlands. Located along the walkway are many interpretive signs identifying the various species of flora and fauna local to the Kootenays. Along the trail and throughout the Enchanted Forest one can not help but notice the giant 800+ year old cedar trees surrounded by their cousins – fir, hemlock, white spruce and cottonwood.

The “eh Team” were in no rush to escape the forest of fantasy. In fact, when the “eh Team” came in contact with “Canada’s Tallest Treehouse” they felt so good they explored even more. Greg is not one to be shy so he put on his best little kid face and entered the tree house climbing the spiral staircase to the top. From the top Greg shared his excitement with those nearby, “How many friends of ours can say they have climbed to the top of Canada’s Tallest Treehouse!”

Most of the creations of the Enchanted Forest are all hand crafted by artists like Doris Needham, Charles Hanzler and Adel Clark. Doris and Earnest Needham started creating the figurines for the Enchanted Forest back in the 1950s. The attraction opened its doors on July 1st, 1960. Today, the forest attraction is owned by Rocky and Juliet Ehlers and their children.

The Enchanted Forest is open from mid-May to mid-September. When you have completed your fairy tale exploration make sure to visit the gift shop for your fantasy world keepsake. And… on your way out make sure you sign the guest book. The brothers did with their Enchanted Forest pen. It was a magical pen full of surprises. When the “eh Team” went to sign the guest book the pen had a mind of its own and started writing, “EHMazing” when describing their experience.
