The carousel operator walked around the carousel to inspect it before energizing it to rotate. That operator wore a Hawaiian shirt that day.

The carousel was a popular ride because even one year old children could ride with the help of parents.

A spherical safety mirror was alongside the fence next to the carousel. Its convex surface provided a view of the entire carousel in context.
