Visitors may choose from a lion, giraffe, camel or other whimsical creatures for a nostalgic ride, accompanied by music from a Wurlitzer band organ. A museum offers a historical perspective, from the early years of the Philadelphia Toboggan Co. to how carousel animals are crafted. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
