When my children were small I used to bring them to ride the carousel and 40 years ago it was a bargain at 5 cents per ride. Now my grandchildren ride the carousel and it is still 5 cents.

The carousel was one of my favorite activities as a kid, at 5 cents a ride there isn't much to complain about except sometimes they don't let you stay on for more than one ride without getting off an getting back in line. The ride is awesome though and you get a good 20 rotations maybe but I like that... More

I took my mom here and she had a blast from the past moment! I enjoyed how much fun she was having and the carousel was a lot of fun. Just like a little kid, she wanted to go again and again! She bought candy she hadn't seen since she was a child, and we both just loved the music... More

Affordable family destination, great for families of all ages. The carousel is located right beside a beautiful beach and a climber plays etc perfect for littles. If the weather is right you can easily spend an afternoon here!

A beautifully maintained carousel on the beach. A true hidden gem for children of all ages. We have taken many people on our "Grand Niagara Tour" - and they are a lot of "grand" things to see and do but they rate a ride on this carousel at the top! So much fun for five cents.
