On my recent trip to New York, I made it a priority to see this beautiful carousel! Opened in August of 2015, the carousel was created by Warrie Price and took over 10 years to make. It’s located on the southern end of Battery Park near the water! You definitely don’t need to be a kid to enjoy this ride, I loved it so much I ended up going twice while in the city. This is nothing like your normal carousel, the entire atmosphere is different. The music makes the experience even more fun along with every fish being unique. Each fish is facing a different way and with the seats being inside the fish it makes it feel as if you are swimming through a school of fluorescent fish!
The colors of each fish change as well throughout the ride!
Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting NYC! It’s great for everyone whether you’re 5 or 50. If you are planning a trip to this charming carousel, it is even more special at night! With every fish glowing a different color, it really adds to the experience. Whether you go at night or during the day, you are bound to have lots of fun.
