The NEW Carousel on the Promenade at ICON Park in Orlando is now Open!

Today I was invited to take a ride on the new Carousel on the Promenade at ICON Park, an authentic masterpiece manufactured by Chance Rides, a family-owned company with a 60-year history of providing exceptional rides to theme parks, malls, zoos, and other attractions across the globe.

“The Carousel on The Promenade is the first ride of its kind in the Orlando Entertainment District. We’re extremely proud to introduce our second owned and operated attraction to guests,” said Chris Jaskiewicz, President and CEO of ICON Park. “Just as The Wheel has created wonderful memories for families all over the world, so will our new carousel.”

🎠 The hand crafted masterpiece is beautiful and features 30 figures of various animals. (My two favorites are the Allan Herschel Zebra and Dentzel Rabbit.)

🎠 Fun fact: did you know that every carousel has a lead horse? On this particular carousel the lead horse is The Fairy Horse.

🎠 The attraction features two chariot benches, making it suitable for guest of all ages and accessible for people with disabilities.

🎠 $5 for single rider (adult or child); adults ride free with a paid single rider child ticket; kids under three ride free with a single rider adult ticket; or $2 carousel ride with a Wheel ticket purchase!

ICON Park is at the center of the new Orlando Entertainment District. Conveniently located near I-4, Florida’s Turnpike and the Beachline, the premiere entertainment destination is easy to access and offers free parking for any Central Florida resident or Orlando tourist.
