Throwing parties is one of our favorite things to do! Whether you've hosted your party before with Fantasy Forest Amusement Park at the Flushing Meadows Carousel or are considering us for the first time, our goal is to make sure you're well taken care of. From the moment you submit your party inquiry to the day our Party Host greets you at the gate, we do our best to ensure that the entire process is as smooth as possible.
As you start dreaming about where to host your next birthday, here are some helpful FAQ's on how to throw a party with Fantasy Forest:
What is the role of the Party Host?
To help make your party as amazing as possible, we provide an incredible Party Host who will be with you throughout your entire party. Under your direction, the Party Host will help with set-up and tear-down, as well as be on-hand for any trouble-shooting or questions you may have.
How large is the private tent area & how many people does it hold?
The private party area is 22.5' x 15' and can generally accommodate between 50-60 people beneath the tent. Keep in mind that for most of your event, the kids will be having fun riding rides and playing games so the only time that guests are all gathered in the party area is for food and cake.
What equipment does Fantasy Forest provide?
Included with your Party Package are 4-8 picnic tables (depending on which package you're interested in) that can generally sit eight adults or between 10-12 kids each. Extra tables and chairs are also available as package add-ons.
Can I bring my own food & beverages? Is there a space to store my cake?
Yes! Though, please note that our facility isn't set up to store food and beverages, and we might be able to store your cake (sealed) if your Party Host is able to. Alternatively, we offer a variety of food options - just ask us!
What are your rides' height requirements? If an adult has to accompany a child, do they pay?
There are two height requirements, depending on the ride: 36" and 42". If the child is below the required height, a parent must accompany them and they do not have to pay. The only exceptions where the child must meet the minimum height requiement in order to ride are the Frog Hopper (36") and Corona Cobra Coaster (34"). Check out our Rides to confirm height restrictions.
Is there parking available? Can I drive up to the gate and unload food & decorations?
Yes, complimentary public parking is available! There's a parking lot right before our entrance. Please note that we cannot guarantee parking and if the lot is full, there generally is plenty of available street parking in the neighborhood. Guests are not allowed to drive up to the front gates to unload inventory or equipment.
What is included in the Goody Bag?
The Goody Bag includes a small plush toy, park brochure, and an additional ticket.
