The Cass County Dentzel Carousel
July 7, 2011
I first heard about the Cass County Dentzel Carousel in
Logansport, Indiana about a decade ago as it's one of a handful of very
rare (and fun) ring machine carousels in the United States. In
July of 2011 Bond and I headed to
for a two day visit and we decided to work in a drive half an hour east
of of the park for a spin on this classic.
The Cass County Dentzel Carousel has several horses that date back to
1885 while the carousel itself dates back to 1902 when it opened in
Robison Park in Fort Wayne before moving to Logansport in 1919.
As you can see that not only us amusement park geeks appreciate a
classic ride like the Cass County Carousel as it's been declared a
National Historic Landmark as well.
Keeping this classic treasure so that it'll still be entertaining riders
of all ages for another hundred years and beyond the Cass County
Carousel is located in a climate controlled carousel house in
Logansport's Riverside Park.
