Carousel, photo by jnhkrawczyk. She writes: A carousel (or carrousel) is an amusement ride consisting of a rotating platform with seats for passengers. The “seats” are traditionally in the form of wooden horses or animals, which are often moved mechanically up and down to simulate galloping. This leads to one of the machine’s alternative names, the galloper. Other popular names are merry-go-round, roundabout and flying horses. Usually, music is looped while the rides spins. (Wikipedia)
