Chief Ranger's Carousel




The classic Thorpe Park Ranger themed carousel.

Location: Rangers County


Official Thorpe Park Description:

From the 1994 park map “The new Chief Ranger’s Carousel is unique with some of Thorpe Park’s major rides in miniature alongside traditional gallopers.”

From the 1995 park map “Whizz around with all the Rangers on this gentle carousel.”

From the 1997 Thorpe Park website “A spectacular carousel ride with 40 brightly coloured gallopers and carriages representing some of the rides at Thorpe Park, such as Loggers Leap, Thunder River, and the Flying Fish. Plus a spinning Mr Elephant and the new Rangers, Miss Hippo and Miss Frog.”



The Ride:

This carousel is unique to Thorpe Park as it is well themed featuring traditional gallopers alongside models of classic Thorpe Park ride vehicles and The Thorpe Park Rangers.

The Thorpe Park ride vehicles featured on the ride include a cartoon style (classic green) Flying Fish, a Phantom Fantasia/ Wicked Witches Haunt ride car, a Teacup and replica boats from Hudson River Rafters, Loggers Leap, Thunder River and a Viking Rower. Since the ride opened a large number of the rides featured have left the park.

The carousel also features models of Chief Ranger, Baby Bear, Mr Elephant, Mr Giraffe, Mr Monkey, Mr Rabbit, Miss Frog and Miss Hippo, with all the Rangers wearing their classic blue and yellow uniforms.
