Countdown to the First Ride in 2017

America’s most famous antique wooden carousel opens Saturday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m. The Kit Carson County Carousel turns 112 this year and spins just as fast as it ever has. Though it does not go up and down…it travels in circles at almost 12 miles an hour…one and half to two times as fast as most Merry-Go-Rounds (and no, there is not a difference between a Merry-Go-Round and a Carousel…both rotate counter-clockwise in America but clockwise in England)
