“Fun for the Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Some fun for the kids at North Bay's water front. Just across the street is a brand new, large scale playground as well as a long sandy beach. The train and 2 carousels offer some excitement for younger kids. As a family, we go a few times each summer at the request of our children so we know they much enjoy it!

It was fun for the kids and the guys running it were retired guys who just wanted to share the stories and experiences with all the visitors.

“Great fun for kids and their caregivers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I painted some of the scenery panels as well as two of the horses and one of the animals for the smaller "northern" carousel, so I know how many man hours went into the creation of the two carousels. Friendly volunteers put in many hours manning the two carousels and the train.
They are great value at only $2.00 per ride. Toddlers love the train even more than the carousel. Some of the horses are a little high for them(even with a parent standing beside them) and prefer the coziness of the train ride.All in al,l a great thing to do with your kids or grandkids. There is also a playground at the waterfront, across the road, that is a lot of fun for the kids too if you want them to burn off some energy.

Great for the kids. Big enough for the adults to ride on. Beautifully hand painted horses on the carousel.
