Owner description: This beautiful carousel, completed in 1995, was the brainchild and vision of a local Missoula cabinet-maker, who carved much of the structure himself and also trained an enthusiastic team of volunteers to assist in the project.

“Classic Carousel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

A really neat old-time carousel built and maintained by volunteers. Rides for 75 cents for children and seniors, $2.25 for adults. Ride it and see if you can catch the gold ring.

“Fun for kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful horses on the carousel. Our children (ages 10 and 8) loved the ride! It was speedy enough for them to enjoy and they has a lot of fun trying to grab the rings. Can't beat the price either- 75 cents per kid! Added bonus was a great playground just outside to let the kids burn off more energy!

“Around and around they go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

When was the last time you sat on a horse on a merry-go-round and reached for the brass ring? I remember as a boy, I found this to be magical! Well, when you visit Missoula, Montana, there is a carousel that must be seen and enjoyed. Imagine if you will, horses and animals all hand carved and hand painted with colors and saddles and other various decor that instantly thrusts you back into your childhood. The carousel is in Caras Park which can be accessed by foot from downtown Missoula in just a few minutes. When you see the carousel and hear the organ music, it will take you to a time that many thought had disappeared, only to find it resurfaced here in Missoula.
I do not know of one child or adult that would not find this experience a delightful one and one they would talk about for many years to come. By the way, if you get the brass ring, you really do get a prize!!!!

“Fast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

This carousel is so fast! I love their pricing structure. 75 cents for kids and just an extra 75 cent for an adult that will share a horse with a child. The young adults working the carousel and concessions were friendly and helpful.
