No cost for a nice ride with my grandson. Thank you !!!! Very nice people and just about no wait. So very nice to be able to do something nice at no cost. Great for a family on a budget.

Old time carousel. Boys rode it four times when we arrived and two more times before we left. Enough said

Its not some crappy little carousel with outdated machinery and broken down horses, its well taken care of, and its free!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.
