Have You Taken a Ride on the "Underwater" SeaGlass Carousel in Battery Park?

Opened in 2015, the SeaGlass Carousel is a cool attraction in Manhattan's Battery Park, yet many locals don't know it's even there. Open seven days a week from 10am to 10pm, the carousel has a unique "underwater" feel, allowing you to sit upon 12 different types of fish instead of horses and barn animals.

Each of the 30 massive fiberglass fish was custom designed and fabricated for SeaGlass by Show Canada. Internally illuminated with color-changing LED light fixtures and outfitted with integrated audio systems, each fish is designed to recall the bioluminescence found deep in the ocean. The show’s underwater atmosphere is created through LED color-changing lighting combined with “water effect” light projectors hung from a custom-designed helical light ring.
