  • It's $3 a ride. A little pricey, but very well maintained. Inside with air condition, a splash park behind it for little kids, and a jungle gym park. They also have concessions inside, but prepare to cringe. Update: The owner asked me to state why their concessions were cringe worthy. Perhaps they wanted me to reevaluate my thoughts on the review and contemplate whether I should have put it lower or not. Simply put, the concessions are high priced as typical for most concessions stands. In a world where everything is top dollar, carousel of dreams is no different. I could go into detail about actual prices, but I'm sure they fluctuate to some extent and don't want to outdate my review. Just expect to pay a lot, or bring your own stuff and go over to the park and enjoy your time there.
  • A great experience. My 92 year old mother was like a kid again riding this carousel. The staff was very gracious in helping her have that experience!
  • Fun for kids and adults. If you sit on the outside, you can grab a chip and toss it in a box on the other side. Makes it a challenge instead of feeling bored while watching kids. Would be nice if they added some fun music with low volume since it's indoors and reflects sounds.
  • The kids loved it and the people running it are so nice and make the kids have to much fun. Monday night is family fun night we will definitely be going again.
  • Good food and fair music, but some old man on a three wheel scooter weaving in and out of the crowd was a real safety hazard. Had to keep looking over my shoulder so I wouldn't get hit.
