Seaside Heights Historic Casino Pier Carousel to take its Final Ride
After this weekend, a piece of our childhood will be gone forever as we sadly say goodbye to the historic Casino Pier Carousel.
Built in 1910, the eventually made its way to the Seaside Heights Boardwalk during the Great Depression. The antique Dentzel/Looff carousel was acquired from Casino Pier in 2017 with the intent to refurbish and relocate it into in a carousel museum. The building is planned to be located next to the boardwalk between Carteret and Sampson avenues.
The Casino Pier Arcade and Carousel will be open Saturday and Sunday. The ride will remain shut down inside the arcade until the fall when it is moved into storage.
