A wonderful non-traditional carousel. So many animals to choose from and our daughter loved picking out which one to ride. Funky music played. And nice that adults get to ride free when they need to assist a child.

Was strolling past in early morning and there was this wonderful treasure of a carousel. Not like the ones with the tired old horsies, this was alive with all manner of land and sea creatures. Hawk, fish, butterflies, and more. Very well done, very bright...More

Cute place for young kids to visit. 3 dollars each for a ride. The ride is very short though leaving the kiddies wanting more. They do allow adults on to ride. Great places to walk around after.

We hardly ever have to wait in line. Such a good deal right in the heart of Boston. Beautiful sculptural animals that my kids look to try out every time we're in the city.

Beautiful carousel located in the park. Only $3.00 to ride. Kids loved the elaborately decorated horses and other animals portrayed on the ride.. Wasn't busy and a really nice attraction in the park
