Covid-19 Plan – Latest Update

Thank you for planning to visit the Carousel of Happiness. This page provides the latest update on Covid-19 mitigation practices.

Boulder County Moves to Level Clear, Mask Mandate Expires

On May 16, 2021, Boulder County moved to Level Clear for the next 90 days, which is an observation period under the Public Health Order. Under Level Clear, mitigation measures and restrictions on capacity are no longer required of businesses. On June 10, thanks to the county’s high vaccination rate and low case rates, the county’s mask mandate was also allowed to expire.

Carousel Returns to Normal Operations

The Carousel of Happiness returned to its normal operations starting May 20, with the same regular cleaning, sanitizing and ventilation practices that we used before Covid-19. We will continue our staff wellness screenings and keep hand sanitizer available in our public spaces.

Once again, visitors may enter the building through the front door, purchase tickets and line up to ride the carousel along the perimeter of the Carousel House, staying as long as they wish to enjoy the art and music. After riding, visitors will exit back through the front room and gift shop.

Puppet Theatre and Party Room Reopen

Our second-floor Puppet Theatre reopened for Memorial Day Weekend, and families are again welcome to engage in creative play with our gently used puppets. New puppets are also available for purchase in our gift shop.

And our upstairs Party Room can be reserved for birthday parties. Call (303) 258-3457 or select parties for more information.

We hope you enjoy your visit!
