Flat rides

  • Carousel (1995-2020; formerly Confederate Carousel until 2010, relocated from Confederate Memorial Park where it operated from 1933-1994, since 2008, it now has 4 warnings about the artwork containing Confederate flags and how it doesn't represent the brand's modern views, relocated to a Civil War museum)



In 2003, an employee who was intoxicated from the alcohol located in the employee lounge dressed up like Mario was caught stripping out of the costume and running around naked screaming "Look at me, i'm a birdie!", afterwards, the employee was banned and alcoholic drinks in all places in the park were perminately banned.

Confederate display controversies thru the years

In 2017, shortly after the Unite the Right rally, protesters came to the park to protest the inclusion of the Confederate flag on several of the carousel artworks, some attempted to vandalize the nearly century old art, but were tasered by park security and their fingerprint was no longer valid for entering the park. Out of fear, any person wearing any politically charged-attire, whether it be left or right-leaning, are refused admission until they go back home and change their shirt. Chris Carwardine permanently banned the words "KKK", "Confederate" and the combined word "Hate Speech" from c/Alabamas_Backyard on Carwardine Forums.
