“Grandson still smiling”

Salem's Riverfront Carousel
Ranked #1 of 81 things to do in Salem
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We introduced our grandson to the carousel last week. His eyes bulged as big as I've seen them. The cost is only $1.50 per ride (adult companions ride free with smaller children).
The gift shop is one-of-a-kind, with volunteers making animal characters for the carousel, and smaller curios.
Outside they have an outstanding play area for children.
Later grandson took his dad back for a 2nd ride.
The whole morning only cost us $3.00!

Went w/a 2 year old who really enjoyed the horse rides. Good clean place for children. There were places for adults to sit while the children rode the carousel and an attached gift shop offered snacks.

An old fashion carousel like you see in the movies. The horses are hand carved. If I recall correctly, rides are $1 each trip. There is a nice playground next to the carousel. Kindergaren kids love it and I've seen preteens trying to look cool while having a nice time.

For a great old fashion time at a great price, this is the place to take you kids or your date. The horses on the carousel are hand carved and exquisite.
