“Ton of fun for the kids!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great chance for the kids to ride a carousel, reach for the golden ring (free ride), and see the workshop. All right next to a great place for the kids and adults to run and play in Riverfront Park. Convenient parking, though limited, makes it a great stop if you are passing through Salem on a road trip to the beach

“so much fun!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Clean, happy, friendly place on the Salem waterfront. Right next to the play equipment so once you are done with the ride, you can let the kids play to their hearts content. Make sure to stop by the carvers station in the gift shop. They love visitors and they might even let you help if you ask! Great for kids to feel a part of the carousel. Also, when on the ride, ask to play the brass ring! If you get the brass ring, you get a free ride. I also love them because they don't charge the adults if you need to go on with your small child to hold them on the horses. Even if you go and just watch, it is worth it!
