The Magical Forest is a winter wonderland with millions of sparkling lights, exciting rides, great food and endless holiday cheer.

In 2024, the Magical Forest will celebrate its 32nd season. For more than three decades, Opportunity Village has welcomed families and friends from across the globe. With every dollar spent at the Magical Forest, visitors are helping Opportunity Village fund programs and services for over 3,000 people with disabilities. So while you warm your hands on a cup of hot cocoa from Camelot Hall, you can also warm your heart knowing you are making a positive impact on someone’s life.

This is an outdoor event, so please dress for the weather.


There is something for everyone at the Magical Forest. Opportunity Village’s theme park  offers a variety of rides for all ages, food, shoppes, midway games, and more.

Santa Visits

Visit with Santa Claus at the Magical Forest. This is your opportunity to tell the big guy all the reasons your name should be on the nice list! All proceeds from photos with Santa benefit Opportunity Village.

Avalanche Slide

Are you brave enough to race down the Avalanche Slide with your friends and family? This snow-covered mountain stands 50 feet tall and only the brave will hop in their sack to experience this exhilarating decline.

Cheyenne’s Enchanted Carousel

Cheyenne’s Enchanted Carousel is a cherished ride for the young and young at heart. The carousel is a must for all attendees and it’s brighter than ever before with all new LED lighting! All riders must be 42″ tall unless riding with a guardian.

Beer Garden and Food Options

Food options are plentiful inside the Magical Forest. Peek inside Camelot Hall for specialty items, or enjoy carnival-style eats in the middle of all the action outdoors. Don’t forget the Cookie Cabin inside the forest itself, which sells our famous Dessie’s Table Cookies. Revelers 21+ can enjoy alcoholic beverages inside the Magical Forest Beer Garden nightly.

Midway Games

The Magical Forest will bring out the kid in all of us! Midway Carnival Games, such as Ring Toss, Duck Pond, Goblet Toss and Ball in the Bucket, are set up outside the forest for attendees to enjoy and get those competitive juices flowing! Each game is just $5.
