First opportunity for a complete carousel ride with our granddaughter. A bright sunny day in Salem. We shared our extra ticket with a family who just walked in. Outstanding carving talents here at the Salem Carousel. Be sure to sign the guest register.

This carousel was hand carved by a group of local people and it is absolutely beautiful. it is open most days and doesnt cost much to ride. I love it. I always try to ride it whenever I am in Salem, and I am not even a kid.

The Carousel in Salem is a nice family outing. The staff is very pleasant. The Carousel has a variety of characters from which to choose when picking a favorite one to ride on. Some go up and down as the Carousel goes around, others do not. Refreshments are available. We have taken our grand children on several occasions and it is an outing they really enjoy. We have been to a birthday party at the Carousel for a friend's grand child and the staff did a nice job in supporting the party. The room for the party is very nice. Also there is a great play ground just outside the Carousel building. Great fun, reasonable and nicely kept. Recommend it.

The Riverfront Carousel is a must-visit for our children every time we are in Oregon. This year, our 15-year-old son found a new thrill with the Brass Ring challenge, which he won twice over and enjoyed free rides for. Our 2-year-old daughter loves to try different animals on the carousel with her brothers and daddy. As a great bonus, we always adjourn to the adjacent playground where she plays to her heart's content!

Always a good sight but can be insane crazy, chaos. The carving and work put into the animals is fantastic. Price is reasonable, gift shop is great and there are events and snacks available.

Our kids really enjoyed getting to ride the carousel. We bought a punchcard for discounted rides, and it paid off.

Lovely Carousel, very reasonable and long rides. They also sell popcorn and cotton candy. Drinks available by machine. They have a birthday room for parties and it was kept very clean. Very well cleaned after each event. Very kind and accommodating to the disabled. Just outside is a fun park for the kids too.
