Carousel Park

3834 W. 7th St., Joplin, MO

East < GO > West

The former Route 66 Carousel Park was located on W. 7th just west of Tri-State Rd. This was truly a family entertainment center with everything from bumper cars to a Ferris Wheel. It's closed and much of what was there, including the ferris wheel, seems to be missing now.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
