Free with zoo admission, I love how old it is and the history behind it. It's a nice touch and the kids loved it. Can't wait to go back again.

We got to see this carousel but not able to get on it or inside it. It is closed for restoration. So, I can only rate it on seeing it through a locked gate.

A wonderful family outing to the zoo would not be complete without a ride on this free carousel. the Horsies go up and down as the carousel music plays, and there are even non-movable seats for the less venturesome. Right near the entrance to the...More
