It’s hard to pick a centerpiece of Wisconsin’s House on the Rock.
The 200-foot whale? The giant hall filled with organs? The corridor of coin operated machines? The infinity room that Frank Lloyd Wright considered an architectural abomination?
However, the carousel may best capture the extreme scale of the curious complex of wonders.
Considered the largest indoor carousel in the world, it includes 182 chandeliers, more than 20,000 lights, angels soaring on the ceiling, and 296 animals — but not a single horse.
