Spring Wonderland invites families to an interactive performance peppered with magic tricks, duels, and visits by fairies, hobbits, elves, and wizards. Snow White begins the tour by dubbing her guests as knights, before sending them on a journey through the forbidden forest in search of a magic castle. Along their adventurous path, kids can compete in a sword-and-feather dueling competition, meet Starina the fairy chihuahua, learn the mythical origins of fairies, and get a peak at 4-D miniatures depicting scenes from popular sci-fi films such as Lord of the Rings. Participants also receive 20% off gift-shop purchases and two carnival-game tickets. Showtimes are at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4 p.m.
Good Knight Child Empowerment Network
A nonprofit castle-themed adventure land created by The Good Knight Child Empowerment Network, The Good Knight Enchanted Kingdom & Family Museum is an interactive fairy-tale realm designed to teach children about safety. Founded by a coalition of retired federal officers, The Good Knight Child Empowerment Network's mission is to empower kids and their parents through education, using the fairy-tale format to bring awareness to such hard-to-talk-about topics as child abduction. Through special events, shows, summer camps, and onsite adventures, costumed fairies and brave knights lead their young charges on themed challenges and quests to encourage them to fulfill socially responsible roles and build their self-esteem. The shows also teach children how to employ the ABCs of protection and how to recognize the 10 basic physiological deceptions that criminal predators often use to manipulate their victims, giving kids the skills to defend themselves and their peers.
