This is a beautiful carousel with very unique animals found in the Adirondacks. there are no seat belts but that is fine for most. i believe there is a lower age limit although small children could ride on the boat which just has a bench seat. It looked like it was also handicapped accessible with a ramp up to the carousel and a large space in the boat. It is beautiful and worth a visit just to see the artwork.

Amazing carousel with specially made animals figures that are North Country appropriate...Moose, Beaver and even a BlackFly! Nice restrooms, and really great playthings for preschoolers including dress up outfits, lots of crayons, colored pencils and loads of paper available too!

Even though it's a little more than that ($2.50 for a ride, I think). But this gem represents community at its best: totally a volunteer effort drawing on local artistic and philanthropic contributions of time, talent, and treasure; foresight in city planning to create a wonder in an otherwise off-the-track (literally) city park; the sheer delight of riding a working carousel that does nothing more than go around and up and down, and that smoothly; locally provided art and carvings of fanciful animals to ride on, reasonable cost and quick joy. Young at heart and young in mind will all enjoy this wonderful attraction.

True craftsmanship in these handcarved animals. A long time in coming but so worth all the time and hard work creating this machine.Once around is never enough as it is fun for both children and adults. Well worth the visit and the staff is wonderful. Plan a birthday party there for the kids.

As a person who saw the process of this treasure of this wonderful town I was thrilled to see the finished product. It is absolutely lovely and wonderful to watch, also to ride. The creatures that make up this carousel are of the Adirondacks and are so beautifully constructed, the colors and forms are truly a wonder of nostalgia for adults and children alike.
