We'll be able to visit one of the province's most magical areas very soon. B.C.'s Enchanted Forest is reopening this weekend, after being closed over the COVID-19 pandemic. While they've made a few adjustments, you'll still be able to frolic with some of your favourite fairy-tale creatures.
The Enchanted Forest in Revelstoke B.C. is opening back up to the public starting Friday, June 26. But while all their attractions and fairy-tale inhabitants are staying the same, they've made some big changes to keep you safe.
For example, they've installed a ton of hand sanitizer stations all over the park, and are asking visitors to wear masks if possible. Washrooms will regularly be disinfected, and they've removed all water bottle refill stations.
And, like many other attractions that opened up recently, the traffic will be one-way only — meaning no going backwards and bumping into other people on the path.
They also wrote that anyone who is experiencing symptoms or lives with people showing symptoms of COVID-19 should stay away and only return after self-isolating for 14 days.
If you've been before, you might notice that they'd also built an entirely new entrance and exit to the park. But other than that, this is still the same magical forest we know and love.
The forest is probably one of the cutest places in B.C., full of over 350 charming sculptures and many whimsical buildings.
They also claim to have B.C.'s "tallest, grandest treehouse" that spirals up like a wizard's tower to a height of 50 feet.
If you're a fairy tale fan, this is the spot for you. With tons of references to popular stories from the yellow brick road to the homes of the three little pigs, you'll be whisked away on a one-way trip down memory lane.
This magical forest definitely deserves a spot on your bucket list if you're still stuck on what to do this summer.
