Hire A Mini Carousel.
No matter its age, a carousel remains an essential centerpiece for any good
The Victorian Carousel is the most ornate, breathtaking ride available on the fairground. Together with the helter skelter and ferris wheel it makes up a trio of the iconic funfair rides.
Unfortunately due to the work involved and the operating costs, it is one of the most expensive to hire for corporate events. It also isn’t as relaxed and tame as it looks, for smaller kids, they will need an adult to accompany them whilst riding it.
You can have a great alternative, why not hire the mini carousel. It isn’t really suitable for adults, but it is fabulous for kids. A carbon copy of its larger companion, this has all the same decoration and lighting just in a smaller package. This can be set up in around an hour as opposed to the 5-6 it takes for a full sized alternative, allowing you to hire it at a vastly reduced price.

Brief History Of The Carousel
The original Carousels appeared during the golden age of the fairground, when most of the larger rides were powered by steam engines. The first of the rides appearing had been much smaller, powered by a hand turned crank, and limited by the strength of the person winding the crank.
A farm engineer called Frederick Savage invented a method of powering rides from a centrally mounted steam engine. This led to a massive increase in the size and complexity of the rides, and many of them were highly gilded and decorated.
