The outside of the Forest of Illusion
The Forest of Illusion is the fifth world of Dinosaur Land in the game Super Mario World. The forest contains one fortress, one Ghost House, one Star Road, the Blue Switch Palace, many secret paths, and a whole lot of Wigglers. The world can be challenging, since beating the regular exits will only take the player in a circle, hence the name. To find the way out of the forest, the player needs to find the secret exit in one level. Forest Secret Area, #5 Roy's Castle, and Forest Fortress are the only levels without multiple exits. When any level is beaten, in addition to a path appearing, trees will disappear.
It is part of the same landmass as Cookie Mountain.
Appearances in other media
The Forest of Illusion was featured in several episodes of the Super Mario World animated series, though here it was renamed the Enchanted Forest and had a much more sinister appearance, being darker and with more horrific faces on the forest's trees and bushes.
The Enchanted Forest first appeared in the episode "Ghosts 'R' Us" where it is the main setting of the episode and was revealed to be owned by Wizenheimer; what could also be the Enchanted Forest was also in the episodes "King Scoopa Koopa" and "Mama Luigi".
