That’s a lot of horse rides.
More than 275,000 people have ridden the Salem Riverfront Carousel ever since it opened in June 2001.
The carousel features wooden hand-carved horses and plays old-time music. The cost of a ride is $1.50.
The attraction is open year-round and is decorated in the spirit of each season. It is located just blocks from the Oregon State Capitol on the banks of the Willamette River.
