Giddy up! For generations, fairground carousels have been one of the most magical and cherished rides for young and old alike. At Six Flags Great Adventure, the magical Carousel carries on that very special tradition with 24 beautiful horses and 12 giant roosters!
Choose your favorite horse or clucker and climb onto this charming slow-moving circular ride. Some horses gently rise up and down, while others stand still for a more stable ride. All are lit up by old fashioned carnival lights and music which will transport you to another time. Overhead, beautifully painted portraits of animals add to a rich and elegant design. Everywhere you look you’ll find lavish and colorful historical detail.
This English-style carousel was originally built more than a hundred years ago! You can tell the difference because English carousels traditionally move clockwise, unlike North American models. Share the magic and be a part of history on this lovingly restored and beautifully-maintained attraction. It’s a must-ride ride for couples falling in love, a child’s first amusement park, or simply friends galloping around with laughs and good times.
