Paul Bunyan Land

17553 State Highway 18
Brainerd, MN 56401

218-764-2524

Paul Bunyan Land has been in the Brainerd Lakes Area almost 60 years.  Starting on the Corner of 210 and 371, this attraction soon grew to fill 6 acres with amusement rides and buildings.  In 2003 Paul Bunyan Amusement Center was relocated and moved 6 miles East of Brainerd (12 miles West of Garrison) on State Highway 18 due to technology, innovation and plain old industrial growth.  Similar the story of Paul & Babe v. Steam Locomotive & Chainsaw, it was time for Paul and his trusted sidekick to move on.   Kohls shopping center now resides in the original home of Paul Bunyan Amusement Center.   With a new name and much larger location (23 Acres), Paul Bunyan Land coupled with an existing attraction, This Old Farm Pioneer Village, to widen the appeal to all ages.   The Pioneer Village is the largest one man collection of antiques from the late 1800's to early 1900's in Minnesota.
