Roaring Rapids Carousel

Back in 2019, the owners of Roaring Rapids commissioned the Barrango Manufacturing Co. of San Francisco to build a beautiful custom carousel for the restaurant. The process began with Barrango’s skilled artists carefully casting molds from the finest designs with authentic detail, including cornices, horses, menagerie-style animals, and scenery panels.

Renowned carousel carvers of the past, such as Dentzel, Looff, Carmel, and Illions, are represented in our collection of horses and menagerie animals. The detailed process of hand painting the animals and panels alone took many months. Each piece is a true work of art and represents the magic of the original carousels popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

We are proud to offer such a unique, elegant, and artistic attraction so full of history for our younger visitors to enjoy.
