Information on:

Cafesjian's Carousel

1245 Midway Parkway

Cafesjian's Carousel was built in 1914 by Philadelphia Toboggan Company. It is known as PTC 33 because it is the 33rd machine they made. The company employed German immigrants to do most of the carving and painting. The word "toboggan" in the company name is an old term for roller-coaster, which was the company's original product.

Magical!! ✨ I was so excited that the carousel was running the day I went. Loved reading the history posted. The horses are gorgeous and I'm so pleased they have been so well taken care of.

This is a beautifully restored carousel right next to the Como Zoo. For a carousel, this moves pretty fast, and the ride is nice and long. The price isn't too bad, but they do require adults to pay even if they are just standing next to a small child. My daughter loved it.
