    The Enchanted Forest welcomes you to breast feed anywhere in the park except on rides or ride loading areas. Baby changing tables are located in all restrooms. There are no plug-ins available for breast pumping in the restrooms, except for plugging into the closet in the family restoom in the Timber restrooms across from the Log Ride exit. Please talk to any team member and ask them to contact the office/management to unlock the closet for you. The following areas are the most often used areas for breastfeeding: Women’s entrance area restroom - This area is closest to the parking lot, has a chair and is heated and has a baby-changing table. Individual Picnic buildings - These are covered with tables and located toward the south end of the picnic area by the Ice Cream Parlour. Long John’s Lookout in the English Village -This building is covered and you can watch the Ice Mountain Bobsled Roller Coaster as the cars pass. They go fast enough that they cannot “watch” you. This area is covered with benches with arms but has stairs. This area is across from Sir Newton's Gravity Factory. Theatre seating between shows – During the summer this area is not used between shows and is often a quiet, peaceful place to sit away from the crowds. This area is not covered if it rains except for the back benches. The theatre is located up the hill by the Kiddie Rides.
  • CASTS/MEDICAL RESTRICTIONS I have a cast/medical brace/support boot, etc... Can I ride any rides?
    Let us know at the admission booth that you need to get a Rides Cast check. Our medical supervisor will be called to talk with you about the cast or other medical situation and let you know which rides are okay and will communicate that to the ride operators. Some rides are gentle, such as the Challenge of Mondor and okay for most medical situations. Some rides are not okay for any broken bones at any stage of healing, such as the Ice Mountain Bobsled roller coaster and the bumper cars. Our medical supervisor will be able to let you know exactly which ride restrictions will apply to you.
