 Review of Caro-Suess-el @ Islands of Adventure

Often times modern carousels just pale in comparison to classic, more traditional carousels by a long shot, as they just lack the charm and appeal of the older ones. Granted this is true with Island of Adventure’s stylistic and kid-friendly carousel, but this one definitely closes the gap considerably and actually stands out as one of the better carousels I’ve been on. In fact, it actually is a triumph over a good portion of the classic carousels I’ve been on!

Let me start off by saying that this carousel is a beauty. Located in Seuss Landing, this carousel throws out the stereotypical horses featured on most carousels in favor of the colorful, imaginative creatures Dr. Seuss featured in his various books to great effect. Just the sheer amount of detail present on each character is amazing, something lacking on almost all newer carousels. Not only are there a wide variety of characters present, but the attraction also dons colorful, wacky vehicles in place of the traditional benches found on most carousels. They not only look sleek and stylish, but they also rock as well, a really cool and unique feature.

Never at all did I see a line for this during my visit to Islands of Adventure, but I doubt lines would ever be a problem for this crowd-eater. The ride definitely captures the free-spirited atmosphere of Dr. Seuss to great effect and is very enjoyable for a carousel, as the movements are smooth and the park gives a pretty long cycle considering the park’s immense size. Also, the music featured on this carousel enhanced the zany atmosphere of the carousel significantly and was a huge plus.

The Caro-Seuss-el simply is one of the prettiest, most gorgeous carousels out there. And not only does it look nice, but it also is a pretty darn good carousel in terms of the ride, especially thanks to the unique rocking benches the ride features. If pressed for time, this definitely can be passed for bigger and more unique attractions, but carousel lovers should definitely save some time to check out this creative, one-of-a-kind carousel.
