Create an itinerary including Magic Forest
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.

  • **CLOSED AFTER LABOR DAY** so sad we didn't know this in advance since we hyped my 3year old up for this so much. Why!? We were in town for a wedding and the town was booming, they should keep it...

  • This place is great! Love that it is geared for younger kids and that all of the vintage rides have a brief history displayed. It’s also shady as it is indeed in a forest. We missed the magic show...

  • This is a sweet little park, the kiddie rides are just enough thrill for smaller kids and there are a few rides for older kids that are great. I dig vintage and there was a lot of that, but still maintained. It was mostly shaded which is nice on a hot summer day, the lines were short, the food reasonable. I miss the quirky characters, but the dino walk was effective and fun. I'm glad the problematic animal stuff has been removed. We would go back in a second!
  • We had such a great time here. This is a perfect kids park, with so many fun rides for young kids. We had a blast watching the kids run around and get on al the rides. It has that “old time” amusement park feel in all the best ways. We enjoyed the magic show, got our faces painted, and saw all the dinosaurs too. Would absolutely go back. (Again, just keep in mind this park is definitely for kids. Maybe up to age 8 or 9 ish, max.)
