There is no difference between a carousel and a merry-go-round. Both refer to the same attraction: an amusement ride with seats, usually animals, that revolve around a fixed center and are typically accompanied by music. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word carousel comes from the Italian carosello or garosello and dates back to 1673, merry-go-round was first used in England's Daily Post in 1729. Roundabout and whirly-go-round are also terms used
