2013 is Record Year for Le Carrousel

Despite some poor weather throughout the year, Le Carrousel set yet more records for attendance and revenues last year.

For the year, Le Carrousel at Bryant Park had 112,108 riders – that’s 3,583 more than 2012’s record of 109,525. We also set a new record for revenues, continuing Le Carrousel’s status as a self-sustaining park amenity. In August, we also set the all-time one-month attendance record with 16,080 riders.

We look forward to another great year at Le Carrousel. The price of a single ride is $3, but a frequent rider card is a real steal, giving you 10 rides for only $15. Le Carrousel is open every day through January, 11:00am - 9:00pm on Sunday - Thursday, and 11:00am - 10:00pm on Friday and Saturday. In February, we will be open Thursday - Sunday, 11:00am - 6:00pm. Then in March, we return to daily operation. March starts off with a bang, by the way, as Le Carrousel celebrates Mardi Gras with a bash on March 1 from 1:00 - 2:00pm. The event is free, and all kids and their parents are invited to attend.    

If you’re stumped as to where to hold your kid’s birthday party this year, look no further. Le Carrousel is the perfect spot for a celebration. With unlimited rides on Manhattan’s most charming carousel as the focal point, your child will remember a party at Bryant Park for a long, long time. The best part is we’ll do all the work, so you can actually enjoy yourself. Click here to see which of our three party packages best suits your needs. It’s never too early to book, so act now to make sure you get the date of your choice.
