Cedar Downs Racing Derby

Jockey for first.

And they’re off! Jockey for position in the most intense carousel race that you’ve ever been a part of, when you step foot on the Cedar Downs Racing Derby track. You’ve never rode a horse like this before. Guests will take turns galloping ahead of the pack on hand-carved horses in a ride that always keeps people on the edge of their saddles. Challenge your friends and family to experience the rush of a race, and choose your horse carefully because all 64 steeds are all sprinting neck-and-neck for victory. And as one of only two racing carousels in the United States, it’s an experience as rare as winning a Triple Crown. It’s a good thing this race is guaranteed to put smiles on faces because it always ends in a photo finish. Now get yourself to the starting gates and mount your steed because when the trumpet plays the race is on.

Height Requirement: 48" minimum
