Fantasy Forest Amusement Park & Forest Park Carousel

Fantasy Forest at the Flushing Meadows Carousel is a family amusement park in Queens.  We are located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park near the intersection of 111th Street and 55th Avenue.  Walk down the stairway into the park and we are 200 feet on your left.  The park is right next to the entrance of the Queens Zoo and a two minute walk from the New York Hall of Science.  We have no entrance fee and guests pay only for the attractions they want to ride.
