The Enchanted Forest is not open to the public, but there is quite a bit to see from their fence line.

The Anth still has hand written cards for their card catalog and it shares which books Edgar Allan Poe read and displays a poem he wrote.

The Tower has several story versions of when it was built and who actually built it. The more you look, the more you find. All I know is it’s an amazing adventure.
