 Review of 1911 Looff Carousel @ Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
2 Rating Posted by: biosciking on 12/5/2004 11:57:00 PM
Let me begin by saying that I almost never ride carousels or merry-go-rounds. Its not that I dont appreciate them, as I know they are historic and nostalgic, but I appreciate their nostalgia from the sidelines. In all honesty, its because I just dont find merry-go-rounds all that fun. Now, having said that, let me say that this ride was an absolute blast, one of my groups favorites at the boardwalk. We went on because these reviews recommend it so highly, and we sat on the outside horses. Just grabbing the rings from the slot was fun and challenging enough, but then trying to throw them into the clowns mouth made this a real hoot. You only had a split second to grab and throw, so you couldnt take great aim. You could, of course, hold on to the ring for one circle and then throw it the next time around, but I wanted as many chances as I could get! Whatever you do, sit on the outside horses. You dont get to participate in this fun from the inside, and the ring-throwing is what made this carousel such a great time. Whereas normally I dont want to get on a merry-go-round, in this case I didnt want to get off!
