Thanks to winning a grant from American Express the Paragon Carousel replaced all twelve doors to the building that houses the Paragon Carousel with beautiful wooden doors that replicate the original doors from 1928. The grant also allowed us to renovate all the windows above the doors so that now light streams into the building. Thank you!

Birthday Parties at the Carousel

Children of all ages return year after year to celebrate birthdays and experience the good old-fashioned fun of our vintage merry-go-round. For the duration of the party, each child enjoys unlimited rides on the horses and chariots with their guests while the Carousel operator plays special birthday and sing-a-long songs.

Very special memories are made at the Paragon Carousel — reserve a party for your child today for a birthday that will be remembered for a lifetime!

Birthday Party Package Details
• Your own party space inside the Carousel building for 1.5 hours.

• Area will be set up with tables, chairs and balloons for each child. 

• Unlimited rides for 1.5 hours.

• One complimentary old-fashioned wooden token for each child, good for a future carousel ride.
These tokens are a favorite to include in goodie bags.

Birthday Party Prices
Birthday party prices start at $120 for a party of up to 10 children and an adult for each child. There is a charge of $12 for each additional child, with a maximum of 20 children total. Special arrangements can be made for parties larger than 20.

Each child attending the party is allowed one supervisory adult at no extra charge. Additional adults will be charged $12 per person.

Call and speak with our Operations Manager to ask about party add-ons including pizza, ice cream and face painting. We now offer a special princess package that includes a visit from the Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, Cinderella, Tinkerbell, and the Snow Queen. Please call for details.

We also have a “forgetful host” package that includes birthday candles, a plastic cake knife and matches...just in case!

Additional Information
There is a service charge of $6 for each child that does not attend the event. This charge covers our setup costs while reducing your costs for guests that do not arrive. You may change your confirmation up to 48 hours prior to the event to avoid these charges.

For proper supervision, we require one adult for every four children 42” and taller. Children under 42” require their own supervisory adult.

We require the party balance to be paid in full no later than the day of the event before your party begins. Please call to confirm guest count and any other details at least 48 hours before your event.

Birthday parties are scheduled during the Carousel’s regular hours of operation.
