The Ruth Band Organ

The horses ride to music provided by a turn of the century organ that Mr. Looff imported from Germany. The organ belts out tunes like the one you are listening to now. You’ll be hearing one bell when you mount up and fasten your safety belt—that means the carousel is ready to start. When you hear a second bell,the carousel begins to turn, and when it reaches full speed—between 8 and 9 miles an hour, three bells sound—and you are off on a horse that is running and jumping and giving you a fun ride!
