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.

Magic Forest reviews
The amusement park is dated. However, that's what I loved about it. Such a cute little charm to it. My 3 year old son and 4 year old nephew went on every single ride, multiple times. We were there..... more »
The park was clean and everyone friendly my 3 year old had a nice time. Train ride was interesting could scare small children. more »
Went for the first time in 35 yrs in 2018, revisited again in 2019. Magic Forest was purchased by a new ownership group, and was very noticeably cleaner, kept up, friendlier than in 2018. No more diving horse show, but now diving people from a really high platform. Worth every penny and the food is inexpensive also. A great dose of old time Lake George kid fun. I'd recommend for kids 6/7 and under.
It was pretty awesome. More for children than adults, but I would visit again with children. Small petting zoo (there were machines to get food for the animals, but they were covered when I went, so you couldn't feed the animals. But some of them were actually near the fences, so it could have just been today), some rides (free as far as I know of), train ride around the area (free, it was pretty good ride). Overall would recommend. Ticket prices weren't that bad either.
