Thank you for your kind review and spending time with us with your whole family. Glad to hear kids of all ages had a great time on our carousel. The experience is what it is all about!
My middle granddaughter had her 9th birthday party at the carousel. The volunteers were very nice to all the kids. The girls got instructions on painting a carousel horse. Got lots of rides and had a blast! Beautiful carousel. Great time for the kids.
