This ride is actually fun! It goes so much faster than a normal carousel. There arent even seat belts or anything to strap you in, so hold on! The only thing is be careful getting on and getting off. Ive gotten I few scrapes from it. A nice ride! Dont pass it up.

Alright, Ill admit, Im a guy and this was a fun ride. It goes just fast enough and if you have friends to compete against, its a good time. I went three times and didnt get bored at all.

HaHa. What a funny and fun ride! There barely ever a line for it either. You jus walk right on, hop on the horse of your pick, and name it if u want! I named mine Giddy! The ride started. Wow this is a lot faster than a boring merry go round!! The racing part wasnt that much though. All u do is slide up and down. Not really racing but who cares! If your tired of riding the roller coasters(who could but u never know) jus hop on this baby and have some fun! Got to ride this one! Itll crack u up!!

This ride is so cute and so unique! Sure the horses are chipping their paint...the center garden was very pretty though! Pick out a horse. Name it. Tell your friends riding how much better your horse is and how much your horse is going to kick their horses butt. Race! The whole race start off horn is such a great effect. Your horses are off... This is no merry-go-round....this thing goes fast! Your horses actually move and race your friends. Its a really fun ride if you let yourself get into it! I went on it about 3 times and had a blast! (and Im a rollercoaster person!) So give it a try when you dont feel like waiting in a huge line!

Wow, I gave this ride only one less point than MF! A very good ride, nice speed and the racing effect is pretty realistic. I loved my horse (a grey one with yellow saddle I believe) and it was beutifully made. Great ride for the whole family.

The day I was there it seemed to be riding slower than I thought (the only other one in existence, at Rye Playland rode much faster) but still a fun ride. This will continue to be a staple at CP for years to come.

Its rare, its a classic, its at Cedar Point, what could be better. This is a ride my grandparents grew up riding while it was at Euclid Beach.

This ride is so much fun, its the thrill seekers merry-go-round. You do feel like your in a real horse race.

Great ride but make sure you are ready for the speed. So much faster than a regular carousel. Another ride for me that is just full of memories. I remember it was one of the only two rides my Grandma went on when she traveled with us. I recently rerode and it still seems fast even with all the modern thrills. The middle area just being grass without landscape really surprises me at CPs lack of creativity.

This is a very unique ride. I almost passed it up, but it is worth the experience.
