Coney Island Fact Check: Two-Story Carousel at Freehold Mall

A read sent us an email about that two-level carousel that Thor Equities has said it will build in Coney Island, proclaiming it the first multi-level one in the Northeast. Not so, says our reader, and he's right. He writes:
Thor claims to be building the first multi-story carousel in the Northeast, uhh, there is one in New Jersey at the Freehold Mall (double decker). What a unique attraction. Can't wait to see the tattoed elephant.
The Freehold Mall's carousel was manufactured by a firm called Bertazzon, which is located in Tennessee. One of their products is something called the Venetian Carousel 12.5/2P Double Decker. That would be the two-level carousel at the New Jersey shopping mall pictured above. We know--picky, picky.

If my memory serves, there's also a double-decker carousel at the Plymouth Meeting mall in suburban Philadelphia.

There's also one at the Danbury Fair Mall in Connecticut right next to an arcade and a corn dog stand that did not help my seven yr old thighs.
