The carousel was beautiful and we really enjoyed riding it. Strangely they were not playing the organ that was meant to go with the carousel and were loudly playing hip hop. Do be very careful and go during the day. The neighborhood it was in...More

I stopped by Danzel Carousel Because it is a reminder of my Childhood, I love the beautiful colors, and music playing, it is a cheap ride on fifty cents a ride, even adults like it. A great place for children birthday parties.

It's a carousel. You get on and it goes around, surprisingly fast. There are seats as well as animals, so people with babies can ride. There's also a tiny snack bar.
