Satan’s Enchanted Forest

Even the antichrist loves Santa’s Enchanted Forest (7900 Bird Road, Miami) — hey, switch a couple of letters in the fat man’s name and you’re talking about the lord of the underworld anyway. Twenty-eight years into Tropical Park’s festival of a million lights, “Let’s go to Santa’s” is still a rallying cry across the county for amazing pizza, to head for the Ferris wheel, and scream through the thrill rides. Whether you’re there with a church group, your girlfriend, or her girlfriend, you’re bound to have a good time. Between bungee jumping, the Mega Drop, the Extreme Ejector seat, and roller-coastering, there are enough adrenaline spikes to keep even the most war-jaded Marine with a smile on his or her face. And with more games and shows than you can throw a bucket of turkey legs at, wimps prone to rideaphobia are covered too. The carnies at the ring toss are honest as the day is long, and the Adam Burke Tiger Show probably won’t end in disaster. Santa’s Enchanted Forest is open every day through January 2 from 5 p.m. to midnight. Tickets at the door cost $24.30; an unlimited-entry season pass bought before November 4 costs only $30.75.
