Daniel Muller carousel

Business Hours


Nestled within the 544 acres of Forest Park is the jewel of Woodhaven, the Forest Park Carousel. Carved in 1903 by Daniel Muller, it is a rare work of art and has been an anchor of the park since the 1970’s. This beautiful piece of history was shuttered for a few years, but we are proud to operate this great carousel and open it once again for the people of New York.
We invite you to visit and bring your family and friends for a ride.
Ticket prices (1 ticket to ride):
1 Ticket is $3
2 Tickets are $5
10 Tickets are $23
Groups of 10 or more are $2.25 per rider


Even on a overcast day we made it out to this wonderful carousel in Queens. The carousel is a city landmark and all it's items are hand carved. You really see the intricate art that goes into each piece. The lil one loved her first carousel ride and being around other kids. There is a snack bar in front and a decent sized event space for parties while today there was a kid party going on. Also a games booth too to win prizes. Carousel rides run only a few dollars. A magic show also occurs in the afternoon. Wonderful carousel in Forest Park with nearby parking. You can always go into the park and playgrounds as well. Makes for a fun afternoon. You'll hear about other bigger name carousels in the city but this one really is a gem and shows the great restoration work that was put into it. Tigers, horses, even family seating on the carousel. Kids loved it.

My kids absolutely love this carousel. We have been on many together but this is one of their favorites. Cannot wait to have a birthday party here.
