The Crescent Park Looff Carousel in Riverside, will temporarily remain closed to the public due to a mechanical issue, according to a statement by the ride on Facebook:
“The carousel will temporarily remain closed to the public due to a mechanical issue that is affecting the balance of the ride. We had our long-time caretaker assess the situation, and we are unable to locate the exact cause of this imbalance. We have contacted Carousels and Carvings, a manufacturer of carousels and provider of restoration services, and are expecting them to assess the carousel next week.
“Once the cause has been determined, we will be able to create a plan for repairs and will update everyone as information becomes available. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding. Our goal has always been and remains — to keep the carousel alive for generations to come. “Restore the Magic, Preserve the Tradition, Support the Carousel.”
