“Nostaligic Carousel and Wonderful Mini-Train”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The two carousels located at North Bay's beautiful Waterfront are well worth a visit with children or for the young-at-heart. The workmanship of the carvings and the painting are exquisite, particularly when one realizes that all of the work was undertaken by local volunteers. The larger carousel is traditional while the smaller one features local animals. The price of the ride is more than reasonable.

The carousels are located adjacent to the mini-train, again constructed and operated by volunteers. It is a delightful ride.

The attractions are open in the summer, beginning in late May.

The supervised beach is nearby, with an activity park for children. Picnic tables are also nearby.

“Your little ones will love it!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Took my great nephew who is three years old to ride the train and the carousels this summer. He is so captivated by trains and the Heritage Train ride did not disappoint. He rode on it four times and each and every time he was so in his glory! The "conductors" are so great with the little ones. I would recommend it for children 8 & under. Older ones might want more adventure. But for little guys this is just perfect. And who doesn't love a carousel. The two at the waterfront here are simply works of art. Kudos to all the volunteers that make this spectacular amusement area just perfect.

“Beautiful Carousel”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

A great way to keep the kids occupied for 30 minutes - and it was enjoyed by the adults too. Thanks to the volunteers that help maintain the train and carousel
