Carousels are virtually a thing of the past, found now at only a few older amusement parks. As with many items from earlier times, Carousel Animals -- horses, dogs, tigers and other figures -- are truly works of art. The phrase, "they don't make them like they used to," certainly applies to the carousel. The new rides may turn us upside down repeatedly and whip us around at neck-breaking speeds, but . . . do they have class?

Visitors here will enjoy a turn-of-the-century Philadelphia amusement park, the circus in miniature, an old-time Country Fair, and Coney Island in its heyday. All will be found at Carousel World.

Its Museum features more than 60 antique carousel animals prancing and prowling amidst life-like animated figures. Miniature amusement rides and other outstanding displays from the Golden Age of the Carousel will be found.

The entire family can enjoy a trolley ride here, not to mention the thrill of riding a magnificent 1926 Dentzel Carousel.

This is a great treat for groups of all ages, including School Groups. Lots of fun and education at the same time is a hard formula to beat.

Carousel World is located in Peddler's Village, a collection of dozens of unique shops, boutiques and eateries. Throughout the year a calendar of special events and activities gives folks a reason to return again and again. For info on Peddlar's Village call (215) 794-4000.
