Midway Carousel

Around and around and back again.

Come one, come all! The Midway Carousel is an attraction for every generation. Built in 1912 and operating at the park since 1946, it’s Cedar Point’s oldest operating ride and one of the few Daniel Muller carousels left in existence today. You can’t miss it, as it’s the first attraction you’ll run into as you enter the park. Step aboard and pick your favorite horse to whirl up, down, around the park and back again. As you enjoy your leisurely ride, make sure you take in the ornate scroll work and artistry that went into making all 60 horses and four chariots while you listen to the hypnotic sounds of the band organ.

Height Requirement: 46" tall to ride alone OR accompanied by a supervising companion. Hand held infants must ride in a chariot with a supervising companion.
