Silver Star Carousel

A Magical Merry-Go-Round For the Young and Young at Heart.

Giddy up! For generations, the carousel has been one of the most magical and cherished rides for young and old alike. The Silver Star Carousel carries on that very special tradition with 50 jumping horses, 16 standing horses, and two beautiful carved benches. Choose your favorite and climb onto this classic, slow-moving circular ride. Some horses gently rise up and down, while others stand still for a more stable ride. All are lit up by old fashioned carnival lights and old time music which will transport you to another time.

Everyone who passes through the front gate of Six Flags Over Texas has seen this iconic merry-go-round, and generations have been delighted by its magic. It was originally built in 1928 and has been meticulously maintained and restored, holding a treasured place in the hearts of countless visitors to the park. Share the magic and be a part of history on this beautiful attraction. It’s a must-ride ride for couples falling in love, a child’s first amusement park, or simply friends galloping around with laughs and good times.
