Amazing, spectacular, colourful and well worth visiting. Food and drink stalls are there and yeah costs but no complaints as well stocked and very tasty. Especially the marshmallow firepit, just a big kid at heart. This year will be out 3rd time

Hello yes you can visit the forest all year round, there was a sign for enchanted forest saying you had to be away for 4pm for the enchanted forest to begin though. There is a place to leave your car at the bottom too x
