About


PTC#30, the thirtieth machine made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC) in Pennsylvania, USA, was built in 1913 on order for the White City amusement park in Sydney. This park closed in 1918 and the Carousel was later purchased for £15,000 and moved to Luna Park, Melbourne. In 1999, the carousel was completely taken down and rebuilding began from the footings up. The whole restoration process took over fifty skilled people two years to complete and cost $2.2 million.
