 Review of Carousel @ Playland Amusement Park
0 Rating Posted by: Ri_L on 8/18/2007 9:05:00 PM
This has got to be the worst carousel mojo Ive ever felt. Regardless of age, they belt you in -- who approaches a girl in her 20s all by herself and demands she buckle up on a carousel that barely moves? The carousel is beautiful, and the Gavioli band organ is a treasure. The figures out in front of it are gorgeous. But the carousel isnt as well taken care of as it should be: the ears of the horse beside me were worn to the wood and its neck seam was visible. Its obvious Playland only cares for their larger, flashier rides that provide more thrills. Playland feels like a dead park; its staff is surly and lifeless, and the overwhelming overconcern for everyones safety stifles any joy to be had in the beauty and history of the park.

I can understand where that can go a pain. But its a sign of the time especially at a park that has had the Problems this one has. Though on this and the bumper cars The adults were allowed the ride without the belt while children were required to use it. but after looking at your Biography I can see why you were disappointed in this ride.

Howdy, Ri - adriahna here, from the CI History Project... anyhow, I can understand your feelings on this one - the machine does need help, to say the least. And the seatbelts suck big time. I tend to review carousels with a focus on their inherent integrity, thus my slightly higher marks for this machine. Darned if you can find Carmel carvings quite like these anywhere else, you know - that sort of thing. But I can surely see where youre coming from. Great to have you on the site, and be sure to drop by our forums!!! And really good to meet you and your fellow!
