All are lit up by old fashioned carnival lights and old time music which will transport you to another time.Fun facts: the Galopant was sculpted in 1885 by Jules Moulinas. It is a beautiful restored carousel, which was maintained, painted and preserved with love and was brought back to La Ronde in 2007. This carousel is the oldest wooden carousel in the whole World! Come and take a seat aboard Le Galopant, celebrating over 125 years! Please note that this ride has been specifically made for children and everyone who wishes to ride it must be accompanied by a child.
