Which amusement park in Oregon was the largest in the nation when it opened
in 1928? Which
amusement center is the longest continually operating park in the country
and features a roller rink,
carousel and dance pavilion? Do you have memories of crawling through the
rabbit hole at the
Enchanted Forest or enjoying the rides at Pixieland in Lincoln City? At the
next Edgefield Oregon
Encyclopedia History Night learn about the history of amusement parks and
how they evolved
into the entertainment attractions we enjoy today. Through photographs and
video footage you
will have the opportunity to learn about little-known amusement parks such
as Council Crest
Park and Lotus Isle. Take a ride on an entertaining and informative journey
through more than
half a dozen historic and current amusement parks in Oregon.
