ATLANTApix: Riverview Carousel

The Riverview Carousel
The Riverview Carousel
The Six Flags Carousel, widely known as The Riverview Carousel, is one of only a few Five-abreast carousels in the world.

Originally built in 1908 for the grand opening of Riverview Park in Chicago, Illinois, the carousel includes 70 wooden horses, four of King Arthur's armored horses (the ones I always try to ride when I visit Six Flags), and four gondolas, also called "Lovers' Chariots."

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
