Carousels & Merry-Go-Rounds

The carousel, affectionately known as the merry-go-round or the gallopers, is undoubtedly the most iconic fairground ride of all time. This true family favourite holds a special place in the hearts of both young and old. The carousel’s galloping horses have been charming fairgoers for a long time: the first version that our family had was in fact powered by a real live pony that trotted around the centre! 


A Ride Through History

The steam-powered carousel was invented in 1860, and soon after, the Irvin family acquired this thrilling new technology and began touring with a carousel very much like the ones that we offer today!

One of our carousels even appeared in Disney’s classic film, Mary Poppins. When you choose Irvin Leisure, you’re not just renting a ride; you’re investing in a timeless tradition of fun and entertainment.

With over 150 years of experience, Irvin Leisure is your premier source for carousel rentals. Whether you’re planning a corporate event, a magical wedding, a memorable family fun day, or a private gathering, our carousel rentals will ensure that your event goes merrily. 

Children's Carousels

As well as our full-sized offering, we also offer carousels just for children. For those with limited space or looking to cater to younger riders, our kids’ carousel is the perfect choice. It’s a scaled-down version of the timeless fairground attraction that is perfect for little ones. With its galloping horses and charming design, the kids’ carousel adds an eye-catching centrepiece to any party or event.

The compact size of our kids’ carousel makes it ideal for events with space constraints. Children can enjoy the fairground experience independently, making it a delightful addition to your festivities.
