Carousel Restoration - Chariots

  Return to the Carousel Restoration Main Page and Slideshow


"Chariot" is the carousel term given to bench seating. For the enjoyment of the spectators, Chariots have an elaborate Romance side that features a theme much like the other carved animals. The seating area inside the chariot can usually accommodate 4 or more people and is usually very simple. Though often stationary, some chariots may spin or rock.

Here are examples of Chariots on the Golden Gate Carousel
