Fairy Tale Forest theme park to reopen to the public

WEST MILFORD -

A New Jersey theme park that brought fairytales to life for nearly half a century will reopen to the public.

Fairy Tale Forest in West Milford will reopen its doors this coming fall.

The park first opened in 1957. It was known for its representations of classic stories like Pinocchio, The 3 Little Pigs and Hansel and Gretel.

But the park closed in 2005 after dwindling attendance.

The owners say that renovations and a new restaurant are expected to bring it back to life.
