Welcome to the National Carousel Association!


Since 1973 the National Carousel Association has been working to keep America's remaining carousels in operation. Through a wide range of programs and projects, the NCA has participated in the restoration and preservation of many of the antique carousels in operation in our country today.

Want to help ensure that these carousels will be around for your children and grandchildren? Join the National Carousel Association today!

We're looking forward to visiting the B & B Carousel during our 2014 Convention!

This carousel has been at Coney Island since 1932, and was just put back into service during 2013.

The carousel features 36 jumping horses, 14 standing horses, and 2 chariots. The music is provided by a Gebruder Bruder band organ.

Visit the Coney Island website for hours of operation, or better yet join us for our convention and take a spin with us!
