Magic Forest, Lake George

Located in the heart of the Adirondacks, Magic Forest features 25 rides and themed shows aimed at entertaining younger children and sparking their imaginations. Lead your little one through the Fairy Tale Trail, which tells the stories of Hansel and Gretel, the Three Little Pigs, and other classic tales. Take a tractor ride on the Mile Long Safari and make your way through make-believe animals and their habitats, or watch a magician perform tricks during a magic show. On your way out, stop for a photo with the giant Uncle Sam statue, the largest in the world at nearly 12.4 m (40 ft). Keep in mind that the park is meant for toddlers, and adults will not be able to go on most rides.

  • This place has an old time carnival feel. The entire park is shady and there are never any lines. The admission is cheap for an entire day. The shows are included. If you want to avoid the crowds at Great Escape, check this place out. We love it and go here every summer.
  • This place is great for toddlers! The park hasn’t changed in the 25 years I’ve been going to Lake George but it’s still perfect for young kids! They have a lot to offer for toddler which is hard to find at most amusement parks.
