CW Parker Carousel

Pick your pony and hold on tight. This group of hand-painted wooden horses (along with an exotic dragon chariot) will transport you back to an era when small-town communities eagerly awaited the arrival of traveling shows, and the familiar tunes of a band organ filled the warm summer nights. You can relive that same magic on our authentic 1912 Charles W. Parker Carousel.

CW Parker Superior Wheel

    Just next door, you’ll find our CW Parker Superior Wheel, which came to the Village in 1991. In fact, Crossroads Village is the only place in the world where you can find not just one, but two working Charles W. Parker amusement rides together, and our Superior Wheel is one of four known to still exist. 

    The Superior Wheel was constructed in 1910 and has had a long and colorful history, surviving a century of use and the floodwaters of Hurricane Agnes in 1972. Its ten original gondolas are hand painted and adorned with scrollwork frames and mirrors. From the top of the Wheel – 50 feet up – you’ll get a spectacular treetop view of Mott Lake and the Village.

    CRV Fall Ferris Wheel

      Rounding out our collection of vintage amusement rides are the Mott Lake Flyer, Venetian swings, wheelchair-accessible swings, and pony carts that provide plenty of old-fashioned fun for your little ones – and you.
