Flying Horses Carousel (The)
Since 1884, islanders have enjoyed the beauty of this magnificent carousel. Built by Charles W.F. Dare, it is the nation's oldest platform carousel still in operation. Acquired by the Preservation Trust in 1986, the carousel is a National Historic Landmark. Children (and others) may enjoy a ride from Easter Sunday through Columbus Day. Rides cost just USD1 and if you catch the brass ring, you ride for free. Video games and refreshments are also available. Open from Easter Saturday to Columbus Day (schedule varies).

Absolute must see for the young and young at heart. My niece was so excited to grab one of the brass rings! My sister is going to make a special momento of it along with pictures of our wonderful time in Oak Bluffs. So much to see and do - great meeting place if breaking into groups and across from Giordano's Pizza makes it even better!
