Its not some crappy little carousel with outdated machinery and broken down horses, its well taken care of, and its free! You dont have to pay admission to the zoo to ride the carousel! Its a very good size, and again its free! you cant get any better than that!

Ross park is a good place to relax. The carousel was fantastic also. The park is great for families as are the trails. A nice day getaway.

I didn't ride the carousel this time, but I have many many times in the past. You haven't lived until you've ridden one of Binghamton's old-time carousels. That's all I can say!

One of the nicest carousel you will find anywhere (in original condition, but well maintained), The zoo does not have many animals, but the walking trails up the mountain are great.

The Triple Cities (Binghamton, Endicott & Johnson City) is known as the "Carousel Capital of the World" for their six original carousels. They are all free of charge to ride. In Ross Park there is also the Binghamton Zoo and the Discovery Center for kids. A lot of attractions for children in one park.

The penguin area was filthy as well as the otters swimming area. The water was green... More

Awesome traditional carousel that everyone gets to ride for free!! Located at the front entrance of the zoo. Also there's a beautiful playground and a covered area with tables for a picnic lunch!
