Flat ride

Opened in 1959, Derby Racer is a traditional merry-go-round attraction with a difference: it races around at high speed. The circular carousel consists of 56 horses arranged in four rows, with the outer rows moving faster than those on the inside. One of three of its type left in the world, the ride is accompanied by a 72-key Belgian Organ.
