Your children may never forgive you if your family trip to New York doesn’t involve a stop at the Victorian Gardens. The amusement park housed within it was an inspired addition to the Wollman ice skating rink, which was only used during the winter seasons. Now, the 50,000 square foot facility plays host to family-friendly entertainment from Memorial Day weekend to mid-September.

Highlights

- Take in the garden’s stunning and unique handcrafted rides.
- Set into Central Park’s historically beautiful architecture.
- Parents can relax while children are entertained in a safe and controlled environment.
 
Children will enjoy limitless magic in discovery in this amusement park. Rides have been created for kids aged 2-12 years old: their bright, handcrafted designs will thrill young ones while creating a sense of nostalgia for parents. Rides like Happy Swing will bring back memories of childhood swing sets while the beautifully crafted Mini Mouse is a miniature version of a rollercoaster. It’s the perfect place to train little ones up for one day experiencing the real thing.
 
Older kids will love rides like Kite Flyer where they can lay down and experience the sensation of free flight. Or if they’re looking for award-winning entertainment, they’ll have to look no further than the Rockin’ Tug. Up to 24 riders can take to the sea as a whimsically- themed tug boat takes them for a trip on the high seas. And when young guests have had their fill of rides, Victorian Gardens’ nostalgic games and enviable schedule of entertainment will keep them amused until the park closes. Packed with laughs, magic, and surprises for all, kids will delight at the live performances and interactive shows.
