The Adventurous Magical Forest

The Adventurous Magical Forest

Alejandra Padilla

Magical Forest in Las Vegas is a must if you want somewhere to have a good time during the winter; it’s a great place to get together with friends and family. Magical Forest is like a winter wonderland with a forest full of millions of sparkling lights, a mini train ride through the forest, a carousel, an avalanche slide and many more fun attractions for all ages. This year, 2016, will be their 25th anniversary.

This event takes place at Opportunity Village located at 6300 W. Oakey Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89146 between Rainbow and Jones. Parking is behind the Magical Forest in the CSN parking lot. The doors are open from November 19 to January 1, 2017 and the park opens at 5:30 nightly.

The prices for this event vary from age, adult admission (+13) is $11.99 and children (under the age of 13) are $9.99. The price does not include any rides, attractions, or food.  These prices might seem a little much, but it is totally worth it because all the money goes to a non-profit organization that provides men and women with all levels of disabilities the chance to lead a life that had previously been unattainable.

When it is not time for the holidays, the Opportunity Village provides the opportunity for mentally disabled people to live the lives they have never had the chance to. It trains men and women in the art of business and how to succeed in a normal lifestyle. The Opportunity Village is a great place for mentally disabled people and their families to get a chance to do something great and it should definitely be supported.

Hopefully you will have the opportunity to join in the celebration of  their 25th anniversary and helping out with this great cause, all while getting into the holiday spirit.
