Built in 1890, the 89 foot wide Eden Palais carousel is one of the grandest carousels in the world. Imported from Paris, France by Magic Mountain of Golden, Colorado shortly before Magic Mountain declared bankruptcy. The carousel was purchased by the Sanfilippo Foundation for their Place de la Musique museum in Barrington, Illinois where it was restored to its current state.

When I was a kid, I LOVED TO RIDE THE MERRY GO ROUND. Love the music and the horse going up and down and the colors!!!! :) Let's go ride one!!! ;)
