Grand Carousel is a Carousel built by US manufacturer Philadelphia Toboggan Company currently located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA.

History

Carousel PTC #21, (Grand Carousel) originally opened in 1912 at Savin Rock, where it operated until the 1960s.

In 1936, the carousel was struck by major flood damage, but was restored and continued operation in 1939, until its closure in 1967, where it was shipped to Six Flags Magic Mountain.[1]

In 1971, the carousel resumed operation in its new home. The park has done extensive refurbishment work on the ride, including replacing most of its original wood horses with fiberglass replicas.
