About Flying Horses Carousel...Located on Oak Bluffs Avenue in the heart of Oak Bluffs, this treasured carousel has been enjoyed by Vineyarders and visitors for more than a century. Acquired by the Preservation Trust in 1986, the Flying Horses Carousel is the nation's oldest operating platform carousel and a National Historic Landmark. It is one of the two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876. In 1884, the Flying Horses were brought to Martha's Vineyard. Rides are only $1.50, and if you are lucky enough to catch the brass ring, you get a free ride! In addition to the carousel, video games are available as well as refreshments, including popcorn, cotton candy, slush, and soft drinks.

A Vineyard tradition for the young and old at heart

Each year for the past 5 years my family has traveled and vcationed in different towns on the Vineyard. No matter how near or far from Oak Bluffs, we ALways made a special trip to take a fun ride on the flying horses carousel. It has become our families tradition. We have taken our ticket, waited in the lines (short or long)...its worth it! We have each been lucky emough to win the gold ring once ot twice and recieve a complimentary ride. Well worth the travel or wait in line to take aride on this fun, historical, whimsical ride...your dream of capturing the" gold ring" just might come true!
