Enchanted Forest Theme Park

pening in 1955 (a month after Disneyland), The Enchanted Forest was a roadside amusement park in Ellicott City, Maryland that featured figures from nursery rhymes and fairy tales.

Visitors paid less than $2 to clamber through Cinderella’s castle, ride through the caves of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and take a teacup ride to the underground scenes from Alice in Wonderland. On a large excavated pond, guests rode the Little Toot tugboat and visited Mount Vesuvius and Jungle Land.

More pictures at Atlas Obscura but damn, that’s one creep looking place right there.

    1. My father grew up in Conneaut Lake, PA. It had an amusement park that was home to one of the oldest working roller coasters in America, and one of the few carousels around as well. They Filmed The Road with Viggo Mortensen there, since the park was shut down and had an electrical fire. The place looks like this in many parts now.
