Here's a tip for getting acquainted with Enchanted Forest Water Safari: as soon as you get there, head straight to Sky Ride. The attraction's balloon-like cars soar right above the Paul Bunyan statue (which has stood tall at the park since the 1950s), cresting at a bird's-eye view of the entire grounds. More than 50 attractions spread out in front of riders' eyes, all set amid the trees of Adirondack State Park. A quarter-acre tidal wave pool dominates a lot of that view, as does the Amazon, a 1,000-foot slide that send families soaring along on the same tubes dolphins use to traverse the real Amazon. Other slides reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, but not everything here requires an affinity for H2O. Enchanted Forest Water Safari is also home to classic amusement park attractions such as squirt gun games, a scrambler ride, and a ferris wheel. But the most timeless draw here may be the park's performers, who put on circus acts and bring more than 20 classic characters to life at Storybook Lane.
