  • The carousel is powered by a motor located under the platform. The motor is connected to a series of gears and pulleys, which help transfer the rotational energy to the platform. The motor is controlled by an operator who ensures the smooth and controlled operation of the merry go round.

  • One of the features of a carousel is the beautiful horses. They are attached to the platform. These horses are mounted on vertical poles. Each horse is mounted on a pole, which allows it to move up and down as the carousel rotates. The up-and-down motion is achieved by a mechanism called a crankshaft. The crankshaft is connected to the pole of each horse, and as the platform rotates, it causes the crankshaft to move in a circular motion. This, in turn, causes the horses to rise and fall, simulating a galloping motion. To enhance the experience, some carousels also feature other types of ride vehicles besides horses, such as chariots or carriages. These vehicles are fixed. They provide a smoother experience.

Safety Measures of Carousel

Safety is paramount when riding a merry go round. To ensure the riders’ safety, carousels have safety features such as handrails and safety belts or bars for securing riders in their seats. These measures help prevent accidents and keep riders securely in place during the ride.
