Actually has two carousels -- the larger one with all horses and another with a winter-y theme and all Ontario animals (including the "Trout Lake Monster" hippocampus)! Rode both - they are lovely, staff was friendly as could be. Loved, loved, loved it! Picked up a cute colouring book for me niece at the gift shop and it is all... More

For kids ages 2-5 it is perfect. My kids loved the train and the 2 carousels. Also they are not too expensive, and close to the beach.

Be sure to drive along North Bay's waterfront and enjoy the min-train and carousel. A big hit with children, and adults alike! There is a chip stand and restaurant nearby and a beautiful waterfront to walk along and enjoy.

This Carousel is unique - lovely lovingly restored horses and booths with period organ music and run by volunteers who are kind, helpful and so enthusiastic about their attraction. The train ride is perfect for families with children and the kids will also love the second carousel that features rides on animals of the north. Make this part of a... More

Of the things to do on an average day at the waterfront, these are about the best. The volunteer staff are very kind and helpful. The train is well run and a real treat for the young and young at heart. Three tickets for $5 or $2 each for each attraction.

This place is great! The cost is $2.00, or $5.00 for three. There is a train and two carousels (one regular horses and one northern animals). The train is a fun ride, but it is a little small seating. It's best if you have older children to have them sit alone.

The North Bay waterfront is a wonderful place to visit. Ride the Heritage Train and the two beautiful Carousel all done by Local carvers. Enjoy a walk and have snack you could spend a fun afternoon here.

Not everyplace has a beautiful and unique carousel like this. Local artisans worked on it led by artist Edna Scott. There are actually 2 rides plus the train. Great for kids but adults can go too. Right by the waterfront. Run by volunteers. In fact the horses and animals were all carved by volunteers with the local carving club.
