Two friends and I visited on Sunday, June 12. After riding on the carousel, the lovely young attendant took our pictures on the carousel and provided a step stool to make it easier for us to get on and off. Wonderful experience.

The carousel has brought back many memories from my youth! It's a great ride and the horses look great! I went during the Christmas ride. The place was decorated to the hilt. It was beautiful.

There are 5 (or ?) free carousels in Broome County. All are well taken care of and free. They were donated with the promise that there would be no charge.

This is a great place to start your way around the County to ride all the carousels. Free ride, as long as you want. Highly recommended for kids.

Go get the brass ring. There are six carousels in Broome County given as gifts by George F. Johnson of Endicott Johnson Shoe fame. And riding them is free for all.
