Tour of Utah: Evermore Park

If you have an inner medieval knight, just waiting for his chance at a noble quest; if you’re a damsel in a dress, seeking an archery lesson to deter beaux; if you are a DND nerd inside and out, and wish for the ultimate LARPing experience….

I give you: Evermore.

“Themed like a European village with its own buildings, citizens, and epic story. Guests interact with characters, go on quests, and become a part of the world of Evermore. The village of Evermore is a growing entity with changing themes, buildings, citizens, and quests.”

-From Evermore’s website

We heard about its opening a few years ago. The great Tracy Hickman told me he’d been hired to help create it*. Friends went. My former supervisor went and wrote about it. Yet, we’ve not tried it.

They have themes and special events. They also list:

  • Archery
  • Axe throwing
  • Bird & Reptile Show
  • Evermore Park-Themed Cuisine
  • Guild Memberships
  • Horse & Pony Interaction
  • Themed Train Experience
  • In-park Exclusive Merchandise
  • Mini Productions of Evermore’s History & Storyline
  • Musical Character Performances
  • Games & Quests
  • Storyline Discovery
  • Gothic Antiquities

It’s located in Pleasant Grove, about 40 minutes south of Salt Lake City Airport. You’d better go quickly; I just read a followup article that says they’re facing lawsuits on unpaid construction projects….

Those cursèd knaves.

*Tracy Hickman gave me that information back when the park first opened. I haven’t spoken with him since.

    What a unique place. I have never heard of it before. Yipes! Lawsuits and unpaid construction projects. Hopefully, they can remain in business.

    That was a roller coaster of a read! I was excited to go, remembered the pandemic, then figured I’d visit when it calms down, but then the lawsuit…

    Still neat to know it exists. Hopefully things get straightened out.

    Well, this does sound fun for people who can get there! We’re pretty much tied down to Work and Groceries if we want to visit my husband’s 90-year-old grandmother.

      That’s how I felt about my last grandparent, but he’s been hosting people and attending parties lately! 😀

        Phil’s grandmother lives in a retirement center, so giving it to her means pretty much giving it to hundreds of elderly… even if she is fine, it’ll be bad news for so many.

        But I do feel terrible that elderly people often feel imprisoned right now. It’s such a horrible thing for them, all around.
