Character Carousel

Enjoy a timeless classic

Throughout the ages, this popular amusement park ride has gone by many names – carousel, roundabout and merry-go-round. But one element never changes – the world’s love for a simple ride that goes around and around to a soundtrack of cheery music. The setting is a treat in itself: when you step onto the carousel’s platform, you’re engulfed in amazing artistry with hand-painted murals overhead and intricately crafted characters just waiting to be chosen for a ride. After taking special care to choose the host ride that’s perfect for them, guests young and young at heart will experience pure joy and delight as they spin on this timeless ride. What’s more, it’s a great place to grab a bit of shade on a sunny day. Fun idea for parents: Ask your children what type of energy they think makes the Character Carousel go around. Solar? Steam? Magnetic?
