A really neat old-time carousel built and maintained by volunteers. Rides for 75 cents for children and seniors, $2.25 for adults. Ride it and see if you can catch the gold ring.

Beautiful horses on the carousel. Our children (ages 10 and 8) loved the ride! It was speedy enough for them to enjoy and they has a lot of fun trying to grab the rings. Can't beat the price either- 75 cents per kid! Added bonus was a great playground just outside to let the kids burn off more energy!

When was the last time you sat on a horse on a merry-go-round and reached for the brass ring? I remember as a boy, I found this to be magical! Well, when you visit Missoula, Montana, there is a carousel that must be seen and enjoyed. Imagine if you will, horses and animals all hand carved and hand painted with... More

This carousel is so fast! I love their pricing structure. 75 cents for kids and just an extra 75 cent for an adult that will share a horse with a child. The young adults working the carousel and concessions were friendly and helpful.

loved the carousel in Missoula. It is housed at a really cute park downtown, and the price to ride is amazing under 2.00 a person :)

A really beautiful and fun attraction for kids, and in a great location to go view the kayakers in Brennans Wave on the Clark Fork river which is in the park beside the carousel.

The carousel staff are all very good with the kids. The Carousel is open year-round. It features real organ music and locally hand-carved and hand-painted ponies. Each pony has its own name and story. The Carousel is situated in the heart of downtown Missoula, right by the river, a beautiful walking path and serene scenery.

Very nice attraction downtown. Kids had a blast; beautiful carousel and workshop where you can see the horses/animal being carved/maintained. There is a snack bar, small gift store, ATM and a pennycollector machine.

Beautiful horses, all works of art, and a wonderful green dragon too. Price is right at 75 cents for kids and seniors over 55. Nice long ride, and one of fastest moving carousels we've seen. If you're a big kid, take an outside steed and try to catch a plastic ring from a dragon's mouth on each circuit--win a free... More
