Now that winter is officially behind us, the Boston Common Frog Pond is getting ready for its newest arrival—a new Carousel that will open mid-April. The Carousel will be located adjacent to the Frog Pond, and will provide a new destination for kids of all ages. In a world that often moves too fast, people are still captivated with this 19th century amusement—children experience delight, parents and grandparents revisit their youth, and teens forget their inhibitions.
The Carousel is an American masterpiece, built by the Chance Morgan Ride Company of Wichita, KS. It features a variety of Bradley and Kaye horses, made from the molds of the legendary Los Angeles amusement company, wildlife figures, and a chariot. It has the style of a classic carousel with an oak floor, beveled glass mirrors, and a standard pie top with lighted crown.
The Carousel is handicapped accessible and has height limitations. Anyone 42” or taller can ride alone; anyone under 42” requires the presence of an adult. Admission for the ride will be $3.00, with 10 ticket strips available for $25.00. Hours of operation will be Sunday-Thursday 11:00am – 6:00pm; and Friday and Saturday, 11:00am – 8:00pm.
