  1. Great colors and lines. Growing up this was one of my favorite places to go. I’ve got to get back to photograph the many rides. Does the merry-go-round still have the ring toss?

    • Thanks. It’s a great place to shoot. Yes, the carousel is still there and still has the ring toss along with three great mechanical organs to provide music.

      I’ve got a bunch of video in the can and someday will pull it together into something worth sharing.

      • Great, I look forward to seeing it some day.
        I’ve got great memories of both the carousel and the roller coaster. There was a recent article or radio program on the carousel. It maybe on a website related to the Santa Cruz Carousel. Sorry no time to look for it right now. I’m headed to the beach with my grand kids.
