The magic starts here

The Carousel at Thanksgiving Point is unlike any other carousel in Utah. The horses were hand-painted and most feature designs of the world-renowned ride company Bradley & Kaye. Featuring motifs near and dear to Thanksgiving Point’s heart, like butterflies, flowers, waterfalls, and more, each of the hand-painted horses is one-of-a-kind. No other merry-go-round has elements like those at The Carousel at Thanksgiving Point.

From the Imagination of Barbara Barrington Jones

When notable philanthropist Barbara Barrington Jones presented the idea of a carousel at Thanksgiving Point, she spoke of a ride that inspired her in her youth to explore her passions and develop curiosity. The Carousel at Thanksgiving Point highlights her vision – and brings it to life so other kids and families can be inspired. Thank you, Barbara, for your love and dedication to our community.
