The Helena carousel allows adults to hold on to their toddlers while they ride the horse. It is not as fast fast as the one in Missoula but it is larger. I took one 4,3 and 5 years old and they had a super time....More

Went to see the carousel as we had read about it. Has a variety of interesting carved animals. I imagine that children would have fun. The ride itself seemed quite short however. We also had an ice cream cone that was good.

The carousal is AWESOME...The little ones (and even the big ones) LOVE IT> The prices are reasonable, the snacks are great and the ice cream (made in Montana) is over the top. Highly recommend for a Birthday Party venue!

Always have to bring the grandkids when we come to Montana. First stop when we arrive in Helena. Great ice cream also.
