Town Pass:

 $25 each

Town passes are available for purchase online at checkout or from the ticket booth in the front circle.  Must be in the town by 11pm

Fast Pass:

A “Fast Pass” allows patrons to enter one of the trails without waiting for their “number” to be called. This gives patrons the ability to skip the long wait in our front circle area. However there is a short line in front of the trail necessary for spacing that “fast pass” patrons must still wait in. To upgrade to a “Fast Pass” you must purchase your ticket online, then visit one of the restaurants below to purchase your upgrade. These are only available to patrons that sit down and eat dinner at one of the listed restaurants. Due to limited seating, a call or reservation is recommended.

  • Bassetts Restaurant
  • House of Poolesville
  • Cuginis Restaurant & Bar

Front Circle Tickets:

Tickets for all front circle activities can be purchased through the checkout or once inside the front circle.   Tickets are $3 a piece or a 10-pack for $25.  Front circle tickets are available for purchase at the concessions stands or ticket booth.

Come Prepared!

  • Wear shoes suitable for hiking through uneven trails.
  • While you wait, enjoy the other Events (tickets sold separately).

Rain Policy:

MHF is usually open rain or shine ~ you never really know where the rain is coming down!?! If the Forest is closed due to extreme weather, news will be posted here by 4pm. If we are forced to CLOSE EARLY due to extreme weather, all patrons who are on-site will receive a rain check. Just like any theatrical performance, if you don’t come out on a night we are open, you will NOT get a refund! TICKETS ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE TO ANOTHER NIGHT.


Reservations can be made for groups of 30 or more. EACH PERSON in the group will need to sign a waiver. The group leader will need to complete a GROUP FORM, and send a contract and deposit to Calleva IN ADVANCE. Contact  ( for more information.
