We enjoyed the ride on this old carousel. The animals are beautiful and the music is suited to the ride. I also liked the dancing girls on the calliope. Only 5 cents, too.

Adults enjoy the carousel as much, if not more than children. At 5 cents a ride, you can entertain your family for hours. It is like going back in time to more simple days and that is always a very good feeling. Worth a trip to Port Dalhousie.

Old Fashioned carousel which has been completely restored. Complete with the music that sounds like it comes from a music box. The best part....5 cents per ride.

A real old fashioned carousel for 5 cents a ride. Completely restored. Improve the music and it would be even better.

A classic day out in Niagara. Walk the shores of Lake Ontario, check out the shops and ride the carousel. A dedicated team of crafts persons keep the carousel in great condition and the price is so right. Everyone loves the ride. The most fun you can have for a nickel.

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.
