A theme park unlike any other, Evermore transports you into a fantasy adventure Renaissance Faire filled with dwarves, goblins, elves, witches, wizards, and even dragons.
Since I’ve not had the chance to be transported to another realm since Evermore’s opening weekend in 2018, I decided this past weekend was the perfect time to see what’s new and revisit some old favorites.
Every Fall, the magical Village of Evermore is transformed into a Halloween wonderland — called “Lore” — and it is, to put it bluntly, Heaven on Earth for me. A lifelong fantasy and Halloween enthusiast, it often feels as if the architects and storytellers of Evermore looked right into my brain to build the perfect theme park just for me.
There are dozens of fun things to do and experience while at Evermore; such as embarking on Quests, an archery and knife throwing range, magic shows, aerial silks, fire dancing, juggling, a bird and animal adventure straight out of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fortune-telling mystics, and themed shops and markets. There is also the Evermore Express Train Ride, a medieval-style Battle Arena, and the LORE Haunted Adventure, which is my personal favorite.
The immersive atmosphere the cast members and performers at Evermore cultivate can make one forget what time they are in or even what realm. Evermore offers unique and exciting experiences for all ages, no matter how much or little you want to play into the fantasy adventure element. My top two tips, however, are to turn your phone off before you go in and to dress up in your best High Fantasy costume.
Happy haunting, friends!
