First of all, it's a classic carousel in amazing condition. Second, it's 5 cents! Beautifully maintained ride for kids of all ages set in Lakeside Park. You can't walk by it without riding it a few times!

This beautifully restored Carousel is fun for the whole family and it is in Picturesque Port Dalhousie. They have kept the price at a nickle over the years so it is great fun for kids of all ages

I brought my 4 children to ride the carousel and now it is time for my granddaughters. On their recent visit my youngest granddaughter began and ended each day telling grandma-grandad that she was going to the carousel to ride the horses up and down. There is no better value than the Port Dalhousie carousel and the smiles can be... More

I have been here several times in the past, most recently with the children and grand children. Kids love it and it is a bargain. Together with a swim at the adjacent beach, makes for a great day.

We love coming to Lakeside Park to walk the piers, ride the carousel and get some ice cream (piers unfortunately closed right now due to structural engineering concerns ...) The carousel is the highlight of an afternoon spent in Port Dalhousie. For only 5 cents a ride, the young and young-at-heart can choose to ride horses, camels, giraffes and the... More

This is a wonderful place that gives you warm fuzzies when you are here. It's old fashioned fun and it should be a part of every child's memory (especially locals!) to visit this place repeatedly! At 5 cents a ride you simply can't go wrong. Although it's not wheelchair accessible, there are a variety of seating options on the actual... More

You cannot miss this! The only disappointment you may experience is the ugly building this treasure is housed in. Be sure to check the hours/dates it is opened and remember it closes at dusk. Suitable for all young-at-hearts. If you are with kids, be ready to stay a while so they can ride to their hearts' content.

I grew up with my Dad taking me to this carousel and after being away for 25 years it was nice to see again. Brought back great memories and was so happy to see it has been well maintained after all these years. Young and old will enjoy it so go make u memory of your own and when you... More

This beautifully hand-carved antique carousel is a real treat to ride. It not only has horses, but lions, giraffes, and other exotic animals as well. I've never had that much fun for 5 cents. If you like art or history, it is worth going to see. There is also a very nice playground and a beach. It's a fine place... More
