Ride on the flying horses and try to get the brass ring. Watching your grandchild catch one is a priceless moment!

“Good for kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2011

Good attraction for kids, but be prepared to wait in a long line for a short ride. Nice antique carousel - the oldest wooden carousel operating in America.

“a family favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

Historic carousel right at the end of Circuit Ave that is loved by kids and adults alike. "Catch the Brass Ring and win yourself a free ride". Open daily in the summer, and most weekends through the early fall. Also open on Easter weekend, with a visit from the Easter Bunny!
