About the Show Info Box

American Puppet Theater is a children's puppet show held at the Chapel. It appeared in 2017. The shows are focused around the "Little Adventurers" and usually have some connection to something within the park.

In 2018, a new, much larger theater, and new sign, was added.

  • In a tree nearby, you may stop a tiny door, leading to the home of some of the "Little Adventurers." According to a comment on the American Puppet Theater's Facebook page, there are at least three doors like this in the park, usually near children's rides.
