adventure forest

Adventure Forest is closed December 30 due to the snowy and icy conditions on the structure. For safety of our guests and staff, we are unsure if it will open for Noon Year's Eve. This decision will be made by 9 am the morning of the event.

If we are able to open Adventure Forest, please note this exhibit uses timed entry, first-come, first-served. Sign up for a time slot at the kiosk in Joy Park when you arrive.

Please note: All regularly scheduled programming is cancelled during this event.
