Magical Forest at Opportunity Village, A Local’s Review

Last updated:

The Magical Forest at Opportunity Village is celebrating over 30 years and is the perfect festive, all-ages theme park right here in Las Vegas.

The best part is, every dollar spent at the Magical Forest goes towards programs and services for over 3,000 people with disabilities at Opportunity Village. I love that they give back to the community in so many ways throughout the year and during the holiday season, the public gets to experience the impact even more!

Tips For Your Visit

Dress Warm

This is an outdoor event and it gets cold out so make sure you dress warm and in layers! So many families underestimated the cold when we were there!


The Magical Forest at Opportunity Village is stroller-friendly. We do recommend a stroller versus a wagon as it can get busy.

Diaper Bags

We brought our diaper bag with no issues. They did search it. You aren’t allowed to bring outside food and drink in, but we had a few small snacks and drinks for my son and had no issue.

Diaper or childcare bags are allowed, but other larger bags such as backpacks and duffle bags will not be allowed inside.


There are food trucks on-site and the prices can add up. Most places a cheeseburger or chicken strips start at $9-11. Fries are $2-4. Funnel Cakes are $10-16.

Their hot chocolate comes from one of those industrial machines and I personal would not recommend the hot chocolate. Also go to the Food Court area for additional food options besides the Dan’s Diner and Funnel Cake area. More drink and food options are in there.

Visits with Santa will be available on the dates and times listed below (2022). Photos will cost $25.
