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.

This is an authentic carousel with Montana animals. Kids and adults enjoy it. You can have an excellent ice cream cone after your ride.

There may not be a ton of things for kids to do in Helena but this is a must. My kids loved the carousel and ice cream next door. The carousel is inexpensive but even a better deal if you take your hotel key card with you (one free ride for the little ones).

This wonderful carousel had the most delightful, local wildlife to ride on - bear, antelope, otter, even a salmon! The ride was long and you could try to catch the brass ring. We finished our visit off with a delicious ice cream. All four of us are over 65 and we had a great time.

Simply too much fun for young and old. There is the brass ring grab for a free ride, and snacks to be had

You can't beat this for families with very young children. Attached to an ice cream parlor and next to a children's museum.

Nice old carousel. Ice cream and candy sold on site. Just like old times. Located just off the entrance to our hotel...the Best Western. Also, there is a mini outdoor theater outside where performers put on plays and acts.

My wife and I discovered this attraction while taking the Tour Train...you get free admission when you purchase your tour. I looked it up on-line and heard it had unique animals...I did not want to spoil the surprise so I did not look at any pictures. We drove out and went into the building. I was really impressed! I had... More

Who doesn't love riding on a carousel? This one is in excellent shape and still has the brass ring grab. You owe yourself a ride on this one.
