The Magistery’s grand carousel was built in 1917 by the C.W. Parker Amusement Company and delighted riders in San Antonio’s Playland Park from 1943-1980.
This fifty-foot carousel is a rare four-abreast "Grand Jubilee” model and boasts fifty-two “jumper” figures and two chariots. It's one of only two that still exist today,
Sold at auction in 1988, this historic machine was put in storage for over three decades.
Soon to be meticulously restored for the enjoyment of all, The Magistery is honored to offer rides on this majestic carousel’s blended menagerie of original hand-carved wooden horses and newly crafted mythical horses from cultures across the globe.
From a Parker Stargazer or Armored Jumper to a Unicorn, Slepnir, Pegasus, Kelpie, and many more, this carousel is truly one-of-a-kind.
