A magical ride for the young and the young at heart
Giddy up! For generations, galloping wooden horse carousels have been a favorite of young and old alike. And a worthy representative of this line of magical carousels is unquestionably the Galopant, the oldest merry-go-round for galloping wooden horses in the world!
Sculpted in 1885 by Jules Moulinas, this beautifully restored carousel, which has been lovingly maintained, repainted and preserved, is now the joy of a whole new generation of families. The 24 splendid hand-sculpted saddle horses in majestic, colorful armor are ready to gallop and take fans of all ages on a journey down memory lane. Choose your favorite horse for this moderately leisurely ride or take a seat in one of the beautifully decorated carriages. In addition, the music and lights reminiscent of the carnivals of yesteryear will transport you to another era.
Share the magic and be part of the story. Come take a ride aboard Le Galopant, which celebrates more than 130 years of service. A carousel ride is a must on a child’s first visit to an amusement park. Adults on their side will want to take advantage of this carousel ride to relive the privileged moments of their childhood.
