      Nice lens. You can also have a carousel party at the real thing. Find a park, zoo, amusement park, or carousel museum near you to book a party. They are usually accommodating and your guests will love riding the carousel.

      What a great idea! This lens has made me want to have a carousel themed party. It's great because it can be used for a kid's party, or it can be adjusted a bit to make a great theme for adult parties like baby showers.

      I did have several as a child. We acquired hard sugar carousel horses from the bakery and they were used several times on cakes for us as kids.
