“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

and Joe the shortest man!
They are all super excited to  escape to a different place, a place where the sunset is a big deal everyday!

Where the woods are cool and the scents in the air swirl about with a combination of  sugar and fresh popcorn!

Woods that could be haunted!Take my hand, don't be afraid....
Just get out your ticket and all will be well...here's the ticket taker
