Giddy up! For generations, the carousel has been one of the most magical and cherished rides for young and old alike. In a beautiful early 1900’s pavilion in Carousel Hill, the Riverview Carousel carries on that very special tradition with 60 lovingly hand-carved horses.

Choose your favorite and climb onto this beautiful, slow-moving circular ride. Some horses gently rise up and down, while some stand still for a more stable ride. Or, take a seat in a stunning chariot carved with cherubs. All are lit up by old fashioned carnival lights and music, which transport you to another time.

This carousel was originally built in 1908 and is celebrating over a hundred years of delighting the world. Share the magic and be a part of history on this beautifully maintained and restored 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.
