The carousel located at Northgate Mall has been open since 1981. It has helped foster a nostalgic amusement for many families that have visited Northgate Mall for over 35 years. Northgate Mall is now under new ownership, and future plans are uncertain; therefore, we know it's best to find a more permanent location for the carousel so children and families can enjoy it for years to come. 

BC Inflatables and Island Carousel owners and stakeholders of the carousel want to keep the carousel here in Durham. 


Why does BC Inflatables care? BC Inflatables has been its lessee, managing the carousel for the past couple of years and we are responsible for its operations, management, maintenance and future. The current owner has agreed to release the carousel in our care, help with the transition, and relocation. Business has continued, but it has been a fight to maintain it. Help us keep the carousel here in Durham for our families to continue to enjoy in a location where it will flourish.


Please help us raise funds to make that happen!

This will costs upwards of $300,000 or more depending on location. The more funds we raise, the better prepared we will be to ensure its longevity.
