Evermore Park is an amusement park located in Pleasant Grove, Utah. The park is meant to be an immersive experience, with buildings and costumed actors that evoke a medieval fantasy world. Ken Bretschneider founded Evermore and funded it with much of his own money.
Evermore Park is unique among other amusement parks; it has been described as more of a theatrical experience than a theme park. The main attraction is not rides, but rather interacting with the park and the actors inside it. Park guests can interact with Evermore’s actors and learn their characters’ backstories and receive quests. There are few other similar amusement parks that provide similar experiences.
Evermore Park offers seasonal events throughout the year, so the guest experience stays new and fresh. Evermore Park hosts Mythos, a mythological fair, in the summer; Lore, a haunted festival, in the fall; and Aurora, a Christmas celebration, in the late fall and winter. Each comes with new creatures, quests, and activities to enjoy.
Admission to Evermore Park is relatively inexpensive, compared to other amusement parks.
Children under 5 get into Evermore Park for free. Tickets for children 6 to 11 years old cost $14 online or $16 at the gate, while tickets for those 12 and older cost $19 online or $21 at the gate. In comparison, tickets to Disneyland start at $100+ per day.
