“A Winner For All!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We read about this online and thought it would be a fun time to see it. What a gem! The attendant was informative, funny and so personable to the four of us as well as all the riders. The gentleman was a retired salesman and he loved being the attendant. Very unique carousel. A must see if your in the area. And for $2.00 a ride, well worth the experience or just stop by to see it.

“An Artistic Gem and fun for kids of (almost) all ages”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

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!

“Well worth the dollar!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

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.

“A true Treasure in this Charming ADK City.”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

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.
