“Choo choo is running again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Always visit this attraction with the grand kids. They love it and so do we.
The carousels are very well maintained and it's a delight to ride them especially the Canadian Animals one.

“Great place to bring kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

North Bay has done a nice job of fixing up the beach. The waterway is nice but the train is for very small kids

“Did you know that the Adult Kids sometimes outnumber the Kid kids?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Amazing hand-crafted carousels! Local artisans have carved, painted, polished and assembled the myriad of animals to make these carousels on the North Bay Waterfront a 'must' to see and a definite 'must' to ride! Volunteers man the ticket booth and run the carousels. I've been to many a country, but nowhere have I seen such carousels as these.
Now, that is not all. There are trains! These reduced-guage trains are both steam and diesel and built and maintained, again, by volunteers, and, like the carousels, often have more adults than children riding the rails.
A trip to, or through, North Bay in the summer is not complete unless a visit to the waterfront Train and Carousels is on the agenda.
For a neat meal experience, go across the road to The Boat, the old Chief Commanda, for a fun meal either indoors or out, right in the harbour.
