Have been coming here since my kids were little, and the rides are still 5 cents! It is a memory-making experience. I still go for a ride when I am there. The typical carousel music plays. Love it.

Who doesn't love riding the carousel? Perfect for all ages. At 5 cents a ride, the kiddies can go again and again and again. Take a break, walk the beach, play in the park, and ride again. Love this historical attraction.

Great fun for kids and kid-like adults. Where else can you have a ride on an old-fashioned carousel for 5 cents? Always a good time

We have enjoyed this old carousel with our kids and now grandkids for many years. Still only cost a nickel to ride. The little ones and older kids as well have a great time. After the fun ride you can walk the boardwalk along the beach. Or walk the pier. Visit old Port Dalhousie for an ice cream treat .Then... More

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.
