“Great Northern Carousel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Great Northern area is a nearer spot in Helena. A great little area to walk around. Carousel is a fun spot for children and they have delious ice cream cones too. Several restaurants & hotels in this area.....although most are on the more expensive side but there is a Subway sandwich stop in the area. Also the Cinema is located just a couple blocks from the Carousel. On Thursdays during the lunch hour, they have musicians playing music outside the Carousel. Plenty of spots to stand or sit and listen to the music.

This is a great way for young children and their care givers to spend an hour. Very friendly, patient, accommodating staff and good ice cream.

“Difficult to find, but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We had a difficult time trying to find this carousel, as it is hidden away a bit. The parking lot is of medium size. To just go and see the carousel is free, but to ride on it costs money. There is a lot of detail in this indoor carousel. Every animal you can ride is different, so you can really pick the one that you most like - fish, otter, buffalo, antelope, Posedon's horse, wolf, etc. There is stained glass all along the top of the carousel. Very cool to see!

“Buffalo Chip Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The ice cream is excellent! The coffee was fresh. The kids who work there were really friendly and they were working hard.

The Carousel is lovely - very charming, very well kept. Very old-school, you just don't see them any more. Definitely worth a visit.
