A Unique Carousel Experience

This 36-foot beauty isn't your average carousel.  Hand-painted and brimming with charm, Cowtherine's Carousel features a unique menagerie, including 21 majestic horses, each adorned with colors that reflect Young's famous homemade ice cream flavors; 6 adorable Jersey cows (a nod to the farm, of course!); plus, a pig, a goat, and a rooster!

The carousel is also designed to be inclusive, featuring two chariots and a wheelchair-accessible seating option to ensure everyone can enjoy the experience.

The construction of  the carousel has generated considerable excitement on social media. One recent comment perfectly captured the community's enthusiasm when Debbie Hall posted, "Omg!!! I'm super excited!! Opening on my birthday!!! I love it ❤️❤️❤️ I can't wait!!!"

Cowtherine's Carousel will be open daily from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm starting July 12th, 2024, and will operate year-round.  Carousel rides will also be included in Young's Club Cowvin memberships, Family Value Wristband events, and will be available for corporate outings and special events.
