Carousel

No amusement or theme park is complete without a Carousel!

Kings Dominion’s unique Carousel has been a part of the park’s family of rides since the park officially opened in May of 1975. The Carousel , also known as PTC #44, was built by the Philadelphia Tobbogan Company in 1917 and was first located at Riverside Amusement Park in Massachusetts from 1917 through 1938. It was then relocated in 1938 and operated at Roger Williams Park in Rhode Island until 1973. Kings Dominion’s Carousel is one of three Carousels that was completely hand carved by John Zalar, who died in 1925, and is one of the last wooden Carousels left in the world! The Carousel features 16 standing horses, 50 jumping horses, and 2 chariots (or sleds). The horses are arranged around the chariots in four rows across the Carousel platform. Old fashioned songs are played on the classic, old band organ as you race to the finish. Kings Dominion’s Carousel is loved and treasured by the young and the young at heart and will be a part of Kings Dominion’s history for generations to come.
