After closing for the season on October 26th, the carousel at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park was partially disassembled and the horses were put to bed for the winter. Luckily, ATZ happened to be there to snap a few shots. Who knew that the ponies spend the off-season hibernating inside the dark ride Spook-A-Rama?!
Past the twists and turns of the Pretzel track and beneath a row of scary-looking props, the painted ponies were gently tucked in for a long winter’s nap. Deno’s Carousel and Coney Island’s other rides will reopen on Palm Sunday, March 29, 2015.
