We Were Made for Summer (and You)! Why our Outdoor Party Spaces are AWESOME.

We can't wait for sunshine and weather so hot you'll want ice-cream for breakfast (our personal favorite meal of the day). But mostly we can't wait to enjoy the outdoors since our amusement parks and carousels were made for the shade!

As you plan your summer stay-cations, school's-out field trips, day camp outings, date-nights and birthday parties, we hope you'll add one (or all!) of our parks to your fun-things-to-do-in-NYC list.


Where: Flushing Meadows - Corona Park

Great for: Day trips, Summer / Day Camps, Special Events & Private Parties

Age Group: 0-12

Admission: Free. Pay per attraction.

Hours of Operation

One of the best things about Fantasy Forest is that it's a mini-amusement park nestled conveniently beside The Queens Zoo and The Hall of Science. You can plan an entire day of fun with this amusement tri-fecta! End on a high note and stop by right after the Zoo or Hall of Science for an amazing assortment of rides and games, cool prizes, and delicious snacks.


Where: Woodhaven Blvd. & Forest Park Dr.

Great for: Summer / Day Camps, Special Events, Private Parties (especially birthdays for 1 year olds!)

Age Group: 0-12

Admission: Free Admission. Pay per attraction.

Hours of Operation

Fun Fact: In 2013, Forest Park Carousel became a Designated Landmark of New York City and is the only carousel that is also a New York City landmark! We're proud of its rich history and fine craftsmanship - something our guests also appreciate and love sharing with their family and friends.

You also can't beat the heat any better than hanging out here; it's surrounded by large, beautiful trees to keep you cool! Another fun fact: young, rising pop star, Demiana Esposito, will feature the world premiere of her video editorial for her latest hit song, Butterfly, during the park's official season opening on March 25th!


Where:  next to Chelsea Piers & The Hudson River Park

Great for: Day trips, Summer / Day Camps, Special Events & Private Parties

Age Group: 0-12

Admission: $3.50 for one ticket. $10 for three tickets. $30 for 10 tickets.

Hours of Operation

The best word to describe a carousel with a unicorn you can ride? Whimsical. Plan your summer day with a picnic at the park, overlooking the Hudson River, and having your kids ride the unicorn as well as the other animals based off the Hudson Valley wildlife.


Where: 215 Schmidts Lane 

Great for: Older kids & adults, Summer / Day Camps, Sports teams, Large Groups, Special Events & Private Parties

Age Group: 12+

Admission: Free Admission. Pay per attraction.

Hours: Opens officially on April 1st!

While our other parks are great for younger kids, we've also got an amazing venue for older kids and adults. Opening this spring, Staten Island FunPark boasts an incredible set of attractions: an 18-hole mini-golf course, go-kart track, and batting cages (perfect for honing that fast pitch!). Enjoy an array of snacks and beverages at the 19th Hole Snack-Bar or ask us about hosting your birthday party or special event at Staten Island FunPark (mini-golf tournament, anyone?).
