Lions and tigers and…ostriches? Oh my, indeed. This beautiful menagerie carousel features 52 animals including everything from bears to rabbits, donkeys and two grand chariots. Being just one of the three carousel’s featured at Cedar Point, it has been serving fun to riders of all ages since moving to Kiddy Kingdom in 1968. The craftsmanship put into designing this classic ride is undeniable, evidenced by the Armored Horse’s inclusion on a 1988 U.S. Postal stamp. Built by the legendary William H. Dentzel in 1924, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. Take a spin on your favorite animal, whether it is standing or jumping, and find that this carousel isn’t like any other. Though it is said to be one of Dentzel’s favorites, we know Kiddy Kingdom Carousel is a favorite for all ages. After all, riding a lion is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone.
