A fun nostalgic ride. Fun for all ages and next to a park. Would recommend it highly. I do not know of any other place that you can have fun for 5 cents.

A place you can go to ride with your kids and yourself for 5 cent during the summer months. Been around for a long time since i was a little kid. I enjoy taking my 10 year old daughter there.

I am a local but can vouch for the fact everyone loves the Carousel. No one is too old to enjoy a 5 cent ride down memory lane. Well maintained and lovely beach and shops short steps away.
