Today, there are kiddy rides, slides and storybook lane for the younger set, and a haunted house, Big Timber Log Ride (the biggest log ride in the Northwest) and a roller coaster for the slightly older bunch.<\/p>","post_name":"enchanted-forest","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"44.8321","lng":"-123.009","distance":"0.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/attractions\/amusement-parks\/enchanted-forest\/","terms":"an Amusement Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Attractions<\/a>)"},{"ID":"595","post_title":"Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge","post_content":"The 2,795-acre refuge offers wildlife observation areas, trails that meander through wetlands and oak\/ash forest, boardwalks raised above the water, interpretive exhibits and observation\/photography blinds.","post_name":"ankeny-national-wildlife-refuge-2","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"44.7754","lng":"-123.085","distance":"6.9","permalink":"\/see-do\/attractions\/outdoors-nature\/ankeny-national-wildlife-refuge-2\/","terms":"an Outdoors & Nature<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Attractions<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1200","post_title":"Salem Repertory Theater","post_content":"Located in Oregon's capitol city of Salem, this non-profit theater stages a variety of eclectic productions.
