This slower-moving, traditional carousel (PTC #79) was built in 1926 and is painted with more than 20,000 sheets of 23-karat gold and 1,000 sheets of sterling silver. It is the park's oldest ride, having opened at Cincinnati's Coney Island in 1926.
I rode this with my little sister and she enjoyed it very much. Little kids will enjoy this merry go round. - Michael Hurley
I'm disappointed every time I ride this carousel due to it's Bad condition machine and paintings and lack of a working band organ. It's Wurlitzer 157 hasn't played sense 2005. - Mike Mills
