Evermore also encourages guests to come in costume so they can feel like they are part of the experience. The Evermore Creative Studio can help you build your armor. It will be tailored to your measurements and can be made with a variety of different materials like thermos plastics or leather.
Your family will have so much fun exploring and pretending that they won’t want to leave. Luckily, there are hotels near Provo to choose from. The Hyatt House Provo/Pleasant Grove is within walking distance to Evermore. It’s also located near Brigham Young University, Utah State Park, restaurants, shops, and more. You could also consider staying in Utah if you have your own house there. That way, staying for a bit longer might not be an issue. However, for those who are planning to move to Utah, they can look for new homes in Utah where they can settle down. After that, they can explore and visit beautiful locations like Evermore Park and many more in the state.
Coming back, the Holiday Inn the Express & Suites American Fork- North Provo is also within walking distance of the park. The budget-minded hotel is a bit bare-bones, but its proximity is what counts. After a long day of exploring, being able to walk to your hotel and sleep in peace is a wonderful feeling.
