There are two types of men: Men who enjoy amusement parks, and men who emphatically do not. The latter group is considerably larger than the former and also wrong. Categorically disliking amusement parks is like categorically disliking restaurants or parties. There is such a wide range of options that the blanket statement is ridiculous. This is especially true in America, which boasts an incredible variety of parks. We've got the big ones – Disney, Six Flags, Universal Studios – but we've also got small ones, old ones, weird ones, and unexpectedly beautiful ones. Here are the spots that will change your mind about amusement parks.
The Enchanted Forest, Oregon
The family-owned-and-operated Enchanted Forest amusement park in Turner, Oregon, is fairy tale themed, which makes perfect sense given its forest setting. Because the Brothers Grimm inspired so many of the rides, the whole place – even the "English Village" – feels vaguely Bavarian. The Big Timber Log Ride and the Ice Mountain Bobsleds ride are particularly popular and thrilling attractions, but the real draw is the openness of the park and the young families it attracts.
