    Abstract: A carousel comprises turntable (10) mounted for rotation about a vertical axis on a frame (12, 13). The turntable (10) carries a plurality, and typically four, see-saw arrangements (11), each of which comprises an arm (43) pivoted centrally to a support (40) and carrying seats (44) at its two ends. Hydraulic rams are arranged to effect movement of the arm (43), as the turntable rotates. The movement of the arms may be linked to the rotation of the turntable. The see-saws may be aesthetically configured to add appeal to young children.
