Magical Fish Tale Carousel
Lenny and Joe's Fish Tale Drive-in
Madison, CT
The Magical Fish Tale Carousel was built in 1999. It is a modern, all-wood Dentzel carousel. It is only 20 feet in diameter with eight figures suspended from above - a "flying horse" type where the figures swing out when the carousel is in motion. The figures included are: a hippocampus, a frog, a giraffe, a lion, a horse, a cat, a seal, a whale and a lobster chariot. The panels were painted at a community painting party. There is also a brass ring machine and some posted information and photos about Dentzel history. For more, see this website.
