I figured we have at least a few carousel enthusiasts on these forums so you might be interested in this.
Brookfield Zoo will open the largest non-restored, handcarved wooden carousel in the country this summer. It will feature 72 different animals and three chariots. This project is being done by Carousel Works.

So THAT'S what that thing is going to be, wondered about that. BTW that zoo is excellent and is a lot of fun year round as most of the exhibits are indoors.

You sure they aren't ripping it out of Great America? ;)

Does "non-restored" mean it is a new carousel or an old one that has seen better days? ;)

An article in a Chicago paper has the story of this new carousel.

I hope it's better looking than that ugly looking thing that Chance-Morgan put in at the San Diego Wild Animal Park.
