Dive In!

Climb atop a magical marine creature and ride a wave of fun through a whirling backdrop of color and sound.

Make your way beneath a colorful aquatic-themed canopy and select one of 56 ornately-sculpted sea creatures—or 2 water chariots. Accented in glittering jewels and vibrant sashes, each hand-carved and painted animal is posed in a fanciful swimming position. Once chosen, hop atop your ocean creature and prepare yourself for a seaside ride.

Immerse Yourself
As a jubilant tune echoes around you, rise and dip on your majestic watery creature. Spin around and around and feel a cool breeze brush across your face as you spot none other than King Triton, Ariel’s father in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, on painted murals next to the carousel.

Command your swimming sea creature as the prince or princess of your underwater fairytale by day or go for a dive at dusk, basking in the magical glow of the carousel’s shimmering lights.

A Sea of Creatures
When choosing your ocean animal, keep in mind that King Triton’s Carousel is made up of 7 different types of underwater critters from California’s coastal waters. The aquatic menagerie includes flying fish, sea horses, dolphins, sea lions, whales, sea otters and Garibaldi fish.
