Beachside to Boardwalk Family Fun in Carolina Beach
Built by the Dentzel Carousel Company, the Carousel has 46 hand-carved animals, three to a row. One lion, tiger, giraffe, and reindeer; four each of pigs, rabbits, ostriches, cats; and 26 horses. There are only 14 Dentzel Menagerie Carousels remaining intact in the world. The Dentzel carvers were famous for their realism and attention to detail which is evident by the facial expressions and muscle definition. The horses have real horse hair tails and all the animals have shiny, round glass eyes. No two animals are alike.
