Founder’s Circle was a retheming of Carrousel Circle, and opened in 2005. The principle change was the removal of Giant Wheel, and the addition of Balloon Flite and Starship America in that location. The roller coaster Turbulence was intended to be installed in that location but that project was cancelled.
Dinosaurs-Go-Round was added to the area in 2006, and Tiny Tracks was placed in storage and Tilt-A-Whirl relocated to that spot in 2012.
Founder’s Circle was merged with several other theme areas to form Founder’s Way in 2014.
