Lots of different animals to ride from Buffalo, river otters, bears, wolves, and of course beautiful horses. Fun atmosphere and the ice cream is great - good place for kid parties.

Great fun for my niece and nephew. They loved trying for the brass ring and selecting a different mount for each ride. Inexpensive treat.

What's not to like about this place? Ice cream and a carousel. On a cold winter day, when you can't be outside, it's a nice diversion.

Kids paradise, and adults enjoy it too. Must see the carousel animals, truly a work of art. Ice cream inside building is a definite bonus.

The Great Northern Carousel is a Helena gem. The handcrafted animals are so beautiful and fun. They are all native to MONTANA! Don't miss the stained glass scenes of Helena lining the top of the carousel. There are also great sundaes and a fun gift shop!

Was very empty due to the cold. Grandson loved riding the carousel and I had a great Bannana Milkshake.

It was "our" first time riding on a Carousel together! I felt like a kid again! :) Be sure to stop here and take the kiddos or just go yourself!! Lots of cool shops and great restaurants too! If you have time, you can check out a movie too!

The carousel is very entertaining and the lines are never long. It is my favorite place to take my grandchildren and children I babysit. The staff could smile more and interact with the children more, but they are never rude.
