Paul Titus Carousel

Take a Spin on a Carousel

What will you ride on? A rearing horse? A zebra? Maybe a tiger? Or a Pacific Northwest slug?

Take a spin on our vintage Paul Titus Carousel and add some sparkle to your Zoo visit.

Tickets: $3.00 per ride ($2.00 members) during Zoo hours.

100 years strong
(and just as fun as ever.)

Our re-created wooden carousel was originally built in 1917 and is located in the DeFalco Family Pavilion at Milgard Plaza, just inside the Zoo’s front gates.

Twirling in the lights

Don’t forget to add in the carousel during your Zoolights visit! It’s the perfect space to warm up and take a ride.

Hand-carved and painted
(with love.)

The carousel features 30 large and four small animals, a sled, and space for wheelchair riders. Hand-carved and painted, the carousel animals were created by the Washington Antique Carousel Society and Friends.

Animals galore
Which will you pick?

Washington state themed horses can be found on the outer ring; endangered species and native Northwest animals are on the inner ring. Local artists are featured on carousel murals.
