Fantasy Forest, a new family attraction at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, will fully open later this month.

A carousel will spin and a coaster will hurtle later this month when Queens gets its own amusement park.

Fantasy Forest, a new family attraction at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, has already opened most of the five rides there, including a train and the borough’s only roller coaster.

The amusement park’s grand opening is slated for May 25.

The small facility will feature the historic Flushing Meadows Carousel as the main attraction.

The classic ride, made from the merger of two Coney Island carousels, was created for the 1963-1964 World’s Fair, officials said. It is the largest carousel in Queens.

“We are truly thrilled to introduce this wonderful family attraction where our guests will come to make great memories and have lots of fun,” said Director Ami Abramson of NY Carousel, which runs the carousels at Forest Park and Flushing Meadows.

“We hope Fantasy Forest at the Flushing Meadows Carousel is home to the first coaster every child in Queens ever rides,” Abramson added.

The park is at 111th Street and 55th Avenue. It is open daily at 11 a.m. through August and will remain open for certain days in September and October.
