We had visited this attraction 5 years ago with our young daughter and thought it would be nice to return again and were pleasantly surprised the rides were still 5 cents. The carousel truly is a great asset to the area and enjoyed by guests of all ages. The sad part was the beach area adjacent is less than desirable... More

You can't beat the nickel price for a nostalgic ride on a carousel. Usually no line-ups and no pressure or rush. Family friendly.

The carousel animals look great. The music is appropriate and the price is just great. The location is nice as the lake is very close. There is a good playground for children. I like the facts that are told through the sound system.

How do you go wrong with a 5 cent carousal??? My kid absolutely loves it and so do his friends. they go on it 10-15 times in a row and that costs nothing compared to other entertainment. It is amazing they still have it going for that cost. Well worth it!

How can you complain for 5 cents a ride! The carousel is always maintained, painted and kept in amazing condition. Its a wonderful experience and i'm glad its one of the few things that hasn't changed in years, and hopefully doesn't in many years to come.

I recently enjoyed a ride on the nickle carousel in Lakeside Park, St. Catharines - we enjoyed a nice ride with the family. Good time for young and old - 3 generations were with us that day!

I posted that there is 'no fee' for the carousel simply because it only costs 5 cents a ride. (to me that is not a fee and is as good as free! :) (I didn't want people to dismiss it simply because of a 'fee' ) Kids love it and so do the parents and grandparents! Well worth a visit... More

It is no surprise that the Lakeside Park Carousel continues to be this city's #1 attraction. The big selling point is the price at the gate - five cents. Out-of-town visitors must just giggle when they climb on a 100 year-old restored carousel animal after flipping a nickel to the gate keeper. Lakeside Park is the ideal spot for this... More
