The Grand Carousel

With a new location for 2018, The Grand Carousel is the oldest ride at Carowinds. Riders get to choose from 68 hand-carved wooden horses and a couple of chariot seats before they embark on a whimsical journey. Among the many leaping horses is the lead horse, who can be distinguished by his golden hooves. 

The Grand Carousel is a family favorite! It even provides a great place to cool off in the shaded line area. 

Height Requirement: 46" minimum, or accompanied by a supervising companion. Hand-held infants must ride in a chariot.
