Carrousel was used to describe the rides on the Continent; the British changed carrousel to merry-go-round, a term that came into common use by 1729.
Amusement-park operators would eventually go back to the ornate merry-go-rounds in 1947, when Los Angeles amusement-park operator Dave Bradley purchased from the Santa Monica Pier an original Parker Silver Anniversary Carrousel built in 1916.
