In October, one of Greenville’s top events for safe trick-or-treating is the annual Enchanted Forest at the Pavilion. Our Kidding Around Greenville Facebook fans came to the rescue with lots of great information on why Enchanted Forest is one of the top spots for trick-or-treating in Upstate SC.

Trick-or-Treating at Enchanted Forest in Greenville, SC

What Is Enchanted Forest?

A unique fairytale trick-or-treat experience awaits kids ages 2-12 at the Enchanted Forest. Wear your costume and discover the magic of the forest, where you’ll encounter characters like Elsa, Shrek, and Snow White. You can visit Ariel under the sea, discover a whole new world with Aladdin, and meet the beautiful Princess Tiana. Then, stroll over to the village for carnival games, bounce houses, face painting, balloon animals, treats, and a costume contest each night.

Don’t forget to dress up, as each night will have a costume contest.

The Inside Scoop on Enchanted Forest

We asked other Greenville parents what they thought about Enchanted Forest, and the answers started coming in quickly! Here are some of the comments that they had about this annual trick-or-treating event:

One of our favorite events! Trick or treating in the forest is fun, and so are the games. If you participate in the costume contests, be prepared to wait. It takes a while to put lots of cute kids on stage for judging.


The characters in the forest for trick or treating were fun and there were bounce houses and little games to play with prizes for playing. There was a costume contest too.


My kids love trick or treating in the Enchanted Forest that is full of storybook characters, like Shrek, Snow White and Robin Hood.


We love the trick or treating in the Enchanted forest with all the story book characters.


And several readers asked, “Where is this? We’ve never heard about it!”

If you want to ride George the train (he’s open most years) then plan to get there early. They’ve tried lots of strategies for accommodating riders, but it usually ends up that if you get there early, you can get a ride in, but otherwise, you’ll probably have to come back another day to redeem that activity on your ticket.

We’ve been to Enchanted Tracks in the past but stopped going when George went out of commission. Now the boys are asking to go again even without the train ride! So yes, great time and lots of fun. Don’t forget cash if you want to partake of the concessions…
