Love the price (5 cents) and the long rides. The carousel is beautiful. The building that it's in isn't so beautiful, but that's ok. I only wish they would open more of the side doors to let in some light and air flow.

This is a great little carousel that is just flat out fun to visit. And at 5 cents for a ride it's great fun. What more can you say than 'it was fun being a kid again!'

This lovingly restored and meticulously cared for Carousel delighted the children and was a throw back to the children in all of us. The only unfortunate part was the surrounding area, where demolition of all the historic buildings has devastated the once quaint community and left it baron. The Carousel is as wonderful today as it was 25 years ago... More

Back in time to 1914 - where else can you go on a merry-go-round for 5 cents? We bought a bunch of tickets and just gave the remaining ones away when we were done. It takes you back to the thrill of your first ride on a carousel, the sensation of flying along on horseback while dreaming of where you... More

Children and adults alike enjoy a whirl on this restored Carousel riding the hand-carved horses, lions, camels, goats and giraffes and four chariots. The accompanying music is played by an antique Frati band organ. All this for only five cents a ride ! Right by the beach at Lakeside Park in Port Dalhousie, the Carousel is only open in the... More

Visited Lakeside Park to spend some time just relaxing in the evening and came across the Carousel which is honestly still just 5 cents! It was a fun activity and so inexpensive! If you have kids, they will definitely enjoy it.

We were just recently on this attraction with my granddaughter , I will say for one nickel you can have fun and children love it. She went on 5 trips and wanted more. I would recommend it to everyone, it is a work of art and a treasure for all.....

Having grown up when Lakeside was still operating ; I well remember the crowds of people that hung out on warm summer evenings. Now the only thing left is the old carousel; and guess what? Its still only 5 cents a ride, that's right 5 cents! Bring the kids , you will enjoy this but check the hours of operation... More

We walked out on the pier. Carousel was closed as it was Friday. I assume it is only open on weekends (?). I have enjoyed riding the carousel many times before and highly recommend it for all ages. Still only 5 cents a ride!
