Type: Old fashioned carousel with Seuss figures
Time: About 1.5 minutes
Short Take: For carousel lovers and little kids
This ride marks yet another design triumph. The old-fashioned carousel has been put through the Seuss looking glass and has emerged as a towering, multicolored confection. In place of old-fashioned horses are marvelously imaginative Seuss critters with serene smiles plastered across their goofy faces. Even if you have no interest in actually riding the thing, it’s worth the time it takes to stop and admire this imaginative whirligig in full motion.
The Caro-Seuss-El is billed as the world’s first interactive carousel. Here kids can ride on the back of a beautifully sculpted Seussian animal like Cowfish from McElligott’s Pool or the Twin Camels from One Fish, Two Fish. There are seven different characters and a total of 54 mounts on the 47-foot diameter ride. The interactive part comes when you pull back on the reins and watch your steed’s head shake, his eyes blink, his tail wag. A special loading mechanism for wheelchairs allows the disabled to experience the ride from their own rocking chariots.
