Giddy up! For generations, the Carousel has been one of the most magical and cherished rides for young and old alike. The Grand Ole Carousel carries on that very special tradition with 68 lovingly hand-carved saddle horses, dressed in colorful, regal armor. Some horses gently rise up and down, while some stand still for a more stable ride. Choose your favorite and climb onto this beautiful, slow-moving circular ride, or have a seat in an ornate lion chariot. The old-fashioned carnival lights and music will transport you to another time.
The Grand Ole Carousel was originally built in 1915 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Co., now know as Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters. The Carousel made its debut at our park in 1972. Now the Grand Ole Carousel is getting a well-deserved detailed makeover after over 100 years of galloping service! You can read more about the Carousel’s restoration here.
