Around the mid 1930s, Euclid Beach Park made alterations to the facades of many of the rides, including the carousel, by incorporating an Art Deco look. The outside of the carousel's rounding boards and inside panels were changed. The horses originally rode the carousel at an angle, heads above their rumps. So that the horses would be more parallel to the platform, a new hole for the pole needed to be drilled; these were seen when the horses were restored in 1997. This change also required the legs of the altered horses to be changed. The horses were then painted completely white, with just the trappings receiving bright color highlights. Also at this time, Euclid Beach Park added the second 'r' to the ride's name: 'Carrousel.'
