For more than a century, the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan has been the subject of thousands of exploits that are treasured among generations in the United States. At Enchanted Forest Water Safari, “Tall Paul” has been the subject of millions of snapshots that are treasured in family albums and now countless social media posts. The 19-foot-high statue has greeted visitors to the park since its opening in 1956. “We have guests come to the park with their kids and even their grand kids because their parents posed with them when they were kids. We’ve seen photos that include at least four generations of families creating this wonderful family tradition,” said Katie Wojdyla vice president and director of marketing. So why not continue the tradition or start one this year?
