I stopped by Danzel Carousel Because it is a reminder of my Childhood, I love the beautiful colors, and music playing, it is a cheap ride on fifty cents a ride, even adults like it. A great place for children birthday parties.

We were really looking forward to visiting this place. It was closed and you have to call to make reservations for an event, group or tour.

It's a carousel. You get on and it goes around, surprisingly fast. There are seats as well as animals, so people with babies can ride. There's also a tiny snack bar.

This is a Meridian attraction. Old restored carousel, kept in great condition and they open it for rides. It is a must see if you live or visit the area. Unique, inexpensive attraction. Open certain times for rides. Look around town for local businesses that...More

During the school year I think it's only open on the weekends. And then only during daytime hours.
