There are 6 Hershell carousels in the Greater Binghamton area. You can ride the carousel at Recreation Park and the other 5 for free. If you ride all 6, you get a pin that is a cool souvenir of your visit. 3 adults in our family ages 48 to 70 enjoyed our tour of the area and rode all 6... More

Nice to ride an old carousel. The fact that it is free is great. The horses were mostly in very good condition

If you're looking for a classic old-school carousel, you've come to the right place. Located at the entrance to the Ross Park Zoo, this vintage ride will be sure to please any carousel aficionado. There's nothing particularly unique or trendy here, but that is part of the charm of this wonderful "merry go round". Highly recommended.

I am not a big fan of zoos, but this Zoo i grew up with and is a small Zoo with big heart. It has changed and down sized through the years and almost closed. It has one of the old and famous Binghamton Carousels there and free to ride. Plus it is right next door to the Discovery center.... More
