This castle serves as a hotel for anyone to visit. This concept sounds a little unusual, but the experience it brings is like nothing you’ve ever had before.

The creator of the Enchanted Castle and Enchanted Highway, Gary, is so creative for being able to turn simple things into magical things. The highway was at one point just a boring drive, but he transformed it into something awesome that holds world records today. The Enchanted Castle is the same – once just an empty school now turned into a truly enchanting castle. And he’s exceptionally nice to talk to while on your trip here!
