The Merry Go Round auto ride in what now is called Fiesta was designed and Built by Bud Hurlbut these cars were driven by electric powered the cars were added to Knott's Berry Farm in 1958.

  1. Geez, Knott's went from having three car rides, to zero car rides! I loved all of these!

  2. I worked on this ride in the late 70s. I would LOVE to see higher quality pictures of this ride. Great memories. Great job.
