This is a great place for a birthday party and that's just where we had my grandson's third. For children 3 on up to preteens they will love riding the carousel and trying to grab that golden ring. My older granddaughter grabbed the golden ring 3 times and was pleased as punch with herself and excited with the free passes she got. We brought a cake for the party and paid for everyone to have ice cream which was enjoyed by all. I only have to say that we're sorry about all the soda spills we had to have the staff come clean up, but you know little kids. The staff is excellent and didn't mind that we overstayed our welcome by about 20 minutes past their closing time. We have had at least 5 or 6 birthdays in the past at the Carousel and will continue coming back. Thanks!!!

It had a place where the riders could grab a ring each time they went around. The kids loved it. Also, had Huckleberry ice cream which I have only found in Montana and Idaho.

Or, the adults too. Great ice cream and the kids had a blast. Right next door to a great brewpub, too!
