Victorian Gardens at Wollman Rink

59th Street and 6th Avenue
New York, NY 10065


Victorian Gardens is a traditional family amusement park with one-of-a-kind handcrafted rides, brilliantly designed to complement the historic architecture of Central Park.

Victorian Gardens first opened its gates to the general public in the summer of 2003. The idea to house an amusement park on Wollman ice skating rink was inspired by a small group of industry veterans, who saw an incredible opportunity to utilize the 50,000 square foot facility not only in the winter, but all year long. After negotiations with the Conservancy, Parks Department and the Trump Organization, these private investors established Central Amusement International (CAI), and plans to design Victorian Gardens commenced. CAI executives turned to Zamperla, the industry leader in ride manufacturing, to help make their vision a reality.

With rides that are specifically geared to ages 2-12 years old and can also accommodate adults of all sizes, Victorian Gardens has the unique ability to cater to its niche market in a safe and controlled environment. Our intimate setting allows parents to relax, while their children experience the joy of discovering the magic of an amusement park.
