Carousels: A Joy for the Young and Old Alike
A carousel or merry-go-round, one of the oldest carnival rides, is the very face of any carnival anywhere in the world. It is not the most exciting, heart-pounding, and thrilling, and some might even argue a bit boring. However, this evergreen ride touches the deepest portion of the heart for most adults out of a sense of nostalgia and is also one of the safest rides for your kids.
Before we go into why you should hire a carousel, let’s discuss the difference between a carousel and a merry-go-round.
Essentially, they are almost the same with a few modifications, so most people consider them to be the same.
- A carousel generally has only horses, whereas a merry-go-round has both horses and other animals, including fictional ones. It can even be a fish or a mermaid, depending on the ones who designed it.
- Carousels generally display only white lights, whereas merry-go-rounds have a multitude of colourful lights.
- In the UK, they are called merry-go-rounds, whereas they are called carousels in the United States.
These are minor differences, but it’s interesting to know what sets them apart.
5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Carousel
This is a powerful tool that never gets old. For any event or fete you organise, the carousel will be one ride that you can ensure that people know of and have been on. After all, who hasn’t ridden on a carousel at least once in their lives. This emotion can ensure that everyone depends on it at least once, if not more.
Carousels have always been the centre of attraction wherever they are put up. The lights and the design along with the cute horses or other animals will capture the eyes of every kid around and, in the process, the adults as well.
Perfect for Kids and Young Adults
At any event or fete, you need a ride for the kids, if not for anything else but to give the exhausted parents or adults a break. With their blend of excitement, attraction, and safety, Carousels manage to be the perfect pick. They are also a good ride for entire families to go enjoy together. Additionally, mini carousels are available that cater to even younger kids, in case you have a birthday party or a small school fete. It’s lovely for small children because it was designed specifically for them, but it’s strong enough to let the slightly older kids join in as well. The frosting on the cake is that these rides are easily portable and can be carried into position, even through large rooms or back gardens, given enough prior notice.
