The happiest place in Southwest Michigan is SO LOOKING FORWARD to reopening in July!
It has been a VERY long time since our horses have been whirling around to a rollicking tune on the band organ! All 48 figures, plus our two chariots, are anxiously awaiting the arrival of familiar visitors and new friends to make some special memories on the Silver Beach Carousel.
We really appreciate your support and patience through these 16 difficult months of closure. We constantly monitored all the Covid-19 state restrictions and modifications with your safety in mind. As CDC guidelines changed, our planning did too, until we reached the point where we could welcome everyone back for a fun, safe ride.
Due to ongoing pandemic concerns, we will be operating a bit differently when reopening. We will be open fewer days and hours than in previous years with a limited capacity in the building. Online reservations with payment will secure a 60-minute visit to the Carousel for a specific day and time. Tokens will not be used for rides but keep any tokens you have! You can use them again at some point in the future as they never expire.
Between the open sessions, our volunteers will take 30 minutes for cleaning high-touch areas while the air conditioning system circulates fresh air into the building. Our photo booth, miniature train display, and Danzini Fortune Teller will all be operating along with a new penny smasher machine with four new dies!
Reservations are non-refundable. If you or someone in your party is feeling ill the day of your reservation, we will be happy to reschedule your visit at no charge.
WEAR YOUR FAVORITE FACE MASK
Yes, face masks will be required for all ages 3 and above. No exceptions, even if you have had the Covid-19 vaccination. If you make a reservation, you are agreeing to wear a mask while inside the Silver Beach Carousel building. Face masks help us protect our young, non-vaccinated visitors so that everyone stays as safe as possible. Hand sanitizer stations are also available throughout the Carousel building.
RIDE AFTER RIDE AFTER RIDE
Your reservation allows you to ride as many times as you can get on a figure in one hour. We have streamlined boarding the Carousel to reduce wait times between rides.
TAKE HOME A MEMORY AND A TREAT
The Brass Ring Gift Shop will be open for souvenir shopping, and our Refreshment Stand will offer beverages, fresh popcorn and cotton candy along with Dippin' Dots and other treats to enjoy after you leave the building. Clear acrylic panels have been installed at both locations for maximum protection of our volunteers and staff. New refreshment order forms will allow you to place your order when you arrive, enjoy your time in the building and pick up your bagged treats when you exit.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
