Make A Wish Foundation finds new home in castle

MONROE TOWNSHIP - The Make A Wish Foundation of New Jersey has a new home, located on 14 acres in Monroe Township. The Disney-like fairy tale castle is called The Wishing Place and was built with ailing children in mind.

The 20,000 square-foot, $7 million castle allows kids, among other things, to see themselves in stained glass windows, the ability to be a beautiful princess in a royal gown and the chance to be a wizard, complete with a wand.

Kids of all ages were able to take a sneak peak today, with the college students commenting on how they wish the castle was around when they were sick.

The castle even comes complete with a Wishing Room, a secret room only for the ailing children.
