So much fun!

The carousel is great and you can't beat the price (although i always pay more to keep it going!) The staff are friendly and the park itself is great!

We thought the price was a mistake but they legitimately charge 5 cents for a ride. It was a lot of fun but had several crying kids once the ride stopped.

We live by the Lakeside Park Carousel. We visited this park in the years prior to moving to the area. We often bring guest to the carousel as its is a beautiful antique carousel. People of all ages ride the carousel. The kids like putting coins in their pockets and buying their 5 cent tickets.

This is a wonderful spot for an afternoon with your grandkids! Take a picnic lunch, ride the carousel several times, while listening to nostalgic music playing on the calliope (even when there's a long line, it only takes a few minutes for your turn), play on the adjacent playground, walk along the beach, and stroll out on the pier. It's... More

A lot of fun for kids and adults. The price of a ride is only 5 cents ! Where else can you get 20 rides for a buck. The carousel is right near the beach, fun for the whole family

A must see if travelling to Port Dalhousie. A great place for kids and adults alike. At just 5cents for a ride on the true to original, historic classic carousel, it will put a smile on everyones face.

This carousel, due to its age, is housed in a wooden building, but it still works great. The animals on it include horses, but also goats, giraffes, and lions. I wanted to ride a lion, but the kids in front of me beat me to them, so I rode a goat. The staff at the carousel were very knowledgeable about... More

This is a beautiful carousel, and we have been taking our grandchildren here, and going ourselves, since we moved to the Niagara region. The ride is 5 cents, and it is located right next to playgrounds for the kids, and a lovely beach on Lake Ontario. Ride, play, picnic.
