Get in the holiday spirit by visiting the Magical Forest in Opportunity Village and bring out the inner child in you as you walk through the park surrounded by millions of lights. It is an enchanted wonderland that is not only magical for children, but for adults as well.
There are a lot of animal characters walking around and taking pictures with many of the children. The displays are awesome and beautiful, especially the ginger bread houses, the castle, the polar bears, Santa’s reindeers, the decorated trees and hundreds of displays. It is a magical experience walking through the twinkling lights and hearing the Christmas music playing.
The express passenger train ride is popular for both the children and adults and the train goes through the entire park surrounded by the twinkling lights. There is also the Carousel, Avalanche Slide, and Mini Golf, Photos with Santa and Hot Chocolate and fennel cakes.
One display I loved was from the movie “The Christmas Story” with Ralphie (you’re going to shoot your eye out) that is shown for 24 hours every Christmas day. I have watched that movie faithfully for many, many years and I love it.

All the proceeds go to Opportunity Village, a non-profit agency that serves the people with intellectual disabilities by providing them with training and employment that improves the quality of their lives. The Magical Forest opens for the season November 21, 2014-January 4, 2015 Sunday-Thursday 5:30-9:00 pm Friday –Saturday 5:30-10:00 pm. and is located at Opportunity Village 6300 W. Oakey Blvd, Las Vegas NV.  It is the highlight of the holiday season and I enjoyed it with my family.
