Enchanted Forest Water Safari, the #4 water park in the U.S., is expanding this summer with three cool new rides. Get ready for the drive to Old Forge.

And boy, are we gonna be ready to have some wet and wild fun when life gets started up again following the pandemic. It should be a banner year for the Old Forge mainstay, considering the frame of mind we're all in and the hot summer that's predicted for the Central New York region.

  1. Continuing to provide exceptional service and safety for our guests
  2. Ensuring the safety of our team members
  3. Supporting local & community efforts to limit the spread and impact of COVID-19
