About This Dentzel Carousel

Castle Amusement Park, in Riverside, California, has one of the oldest and most beautiful carousels in America today.  Almost 100 years old, it is a rare Dentzel Carousel, a Menagerie-Jester Head model. It has 52 hand carved animals and two sleighs that are circa 1904. The Carousel is 25 feet high, 52 feet across.

The Carousel was originally built for the Hershey Chocolate Company and the Hershey Amusement Park in Hershey, Pennsylvania.  It was moved to Knotts Berry Farm in Buena Park, California in the mid 1950's. In 1985 it was moved to it's present location at Castle Park.
