1909 Illions Carousel

Giddy up! For generations, the carousel has been one of the most magical and cherished rides for young and old alike. The 1909 Illions Carousel carries on that very special tradition with 68 lovingly hand-carved saddle horses, dressed in colorful, regal armor, all with real tails. Some horses gently rise up and down, while some stand still for a more stable ride! Horses aren’t the only friends you’ll find on the carousel; there is also a lion, tiger, and zebra making the trip! Choose your favorite animal and climb onto this beautiful, slow-moving circular ride, or have a seat in an ornate dragon chariot. The old fashioned carnival lights and music will transport you to another time.

This carousel was originally built in 1909 and is celebrating more than 100 years of galloping service! Share the magic and be a part of history on this beautifully 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. A ride for the whole family.
