Top 6 most popular carousels in the world


When I say carousel I say childhood. I remember the thrill in riding one. And I have to admit I can hardly wait for my son to be big enough to ride in one – accompanied by an adult ;)

I like carousels so much that I brought a souvenir carousel from Prater, Vienna. But I’ll show it to you another time. I looked for the most famous, not to miss carousels around the world and the results are synthesized in the next top 6. Enjoy and, maybe, include them in your next vacation for carousels are fun!
