The Carrousel is the first hand-carved carrousel to be built and operated in the United States since the 1930’s. The exciting Gift Shop and Boutique attached to the Carrousel has a variety of gifts for all ages, plus local and USA made products. We are located in the heart of downtown Mansfield,and have become the centerpiece for redevelopment and restoration. The Carrousel is opened 7 days a week all year around (do check our web site for the 5 holidays we are closed and our hours) and is handicapped accessible to accommodate a wheelchair.

The Carrousel area is an idea place to have Birthday Parties, Family Reunions, Showers, Get Together s,Church Groups, Women's Groups, Weddings, and Company Parties. We also have Night Time Rentals with an Operator and Hostess just for you.. Please call our friendly staff for more details.

Do stop by and see the 52 figures: 30 horses and 22 menagerie figures including four bears, four ostriches, four cats, four rabbits, a goat, giraffe, lion, tiger, zebra, and a mythical hippocampus (part horse, part fish).

  • Stopped here while in downtown area of Mansfield. Large covered area around the carousel was big enough for a birthday party the day that we were there. They have some rocking chairs for people to sit...  more »
  • A group of seniors went and we all rode the carousel. It was fun for everyone. They also have a gift shop with lots of nice things for sale. It is clean and safe. The horses are all wood and hand pain...  more »

  • Very pretty carousel with a nice gift shop attached. Several childrens parties going on when I visited. Parking lot right across the street. Band organ not operating due to parties and cool weather, but during warm weather the building can be opened up and band organ, which is very loud, will then run so I will have to return. Nice little town with nearby places to eat.
  • Very nice family place. Prices are cheap and affordable. They have a beautiful carrousel with rustic wooden rocking chairs all along the outside for parents and grandparents to watch. This is a great place to take kids of all ages.
