Ride the World’s Largest “Magic Carpet Ride” in New York City

If and when snow returns to the area, skiers and snowboarders will have the chance to do something no one else in the world can do.

Ride the “World’s Largest Magic Carpet Ride” without leaving New York State.

When the ski slope opens at Emery Park, the world’s largest “Magic Carpet Ride” will also reopen.

The “magic carpet” is the automatic moving walkway that skiers and snowboarders use to get to the top of the hill and it was installed at the park in 2019. It is 920 feet long and takes about 5 minutes to get from low to high.


Installing the moving walkway cost the county approximately $850,000, and the system replaced the old T-bar system used at the park for the past 50 years.

Emery Park also offers free skiing and snowboarding on three different hills. The hills are perfect for people just learning to ski or snowboard, or someone who just wants a few quick descents.
