Originally named Carousel Caravan, it opened with the new Timbuktu area in January 1980 and retained that name at least through 1999. It was later known as Sahara Go-Round until Timbuktu was transformed into Pantopia when it was renamed Grand Caravan Carousel.
The carousel features Arabian horses and camels, fitting in with the African theme when it was originally installed.
Additional details and images on Grand Caravan Carousel will be added in the future.
