Carousel- Opening Soon
Come down for a ride on Sonny’s Place’s historic 1925 Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel! This ride is sure to delight people of all ages as they choose a horse and take a spin through history. Some horses jump, while others don’t. All are hand carved and on their way to beautiful restorations! There’s even chariots for a more relaxing ride.
Our carousel has had a few different homes since it’s construction.
1925-1928: Delaware Beach, New Castle, Delaware
1929-1945: Lakewood Park, Waterbury, CT
1945-1951: Refurbished at Philadelphia Toboggan Company Factory in Philadelphia, PA
1952-2009: Kiddieland Park, Melrose Park, Illinois
2009-2017: In Storage, Chicago, Illinois
2017: Sonny’s Place, Somers, CT
Since arriving at Sonny’s Place in May 2017, considerable work has been done to prepare this ride for years of service. We are in the process of having the 48 horses on the carousel restored by the New England Carousel Museum. When our carousel opens, approximately half of the horses will be restored, with that restoration continuing after opening until all 48 have been completed.
Riders under 42″ must be accompanied by an adult.
No handheld infants.
$2 per person per ride
