SCRIPT
An amusement park in the southern German town of Loeffingen said it was redesigning a carousel resembling two spinning swastikas after public criticism forced the company to close the ride. Footage that was filmed on Thursday shows the shut down attraction with a sign saying "Out of order".
A video of the carousel called 'Eagle's Flight' was posted on social media with users pointing at the resemblance between the shape of its spinning parts and the Nazi symbol. Intentional display of swastika is illegal in Germany.
