Paragon Park
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paragon Park circa 1914
Paragon Park was an amusement park located on Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts. It closed in 1984.

Rides
Among the amusement rides in operation during Paragon Park's history was a traditional style carousel with hand-crafted horses, a bumper cars ride known as ''The Scooters'', a Ferris wheel, a horror themed dark ride called ''Kooky Kastle'', and a giant rollercoaster known as ''The Comet''. There was also a ski lift type ride called the ''Sky Ride'', an automobile themed ride known as ''Turnpike Cars'' (later improved and re-named ''Indy 500''), and a water ride called ''Bermuda Triangle'' (later revamped as ''Congo Cruise'').

Today
Today, the only surviving remnants of Paragon Park on the boardwalk are the historic carousel and clock tower. The rest of the site is devoted to condominium development.
