Goldray's Digital Ceramic Printing is a technology that applies ceramic ink directly onto glass in much the same way that an inkjet printer prints onto paper. This solution allows the designer to create multi-color or photographic images for either monolithic or laminated installations. Ceramic frit designs are fused on to the glass surface during the tempering process.

The carousel was made possible from a $1.4 million grant, which was funded by former City Councilman James Oddo's office. It was designed to engage children by combining a timeless amusement ride, with education. The visitors are provided information regarding conservation efforts on saving the endangered animals. Some of the animals featured on the carousel include the Komodo Dragon, Koala, rhinoceros, polar bear and Tamandu.
