It's handcrafted and has pictures on the walls showing you it's cool story. It's fun to ride and beautiful to look at. It has a great gift shop to. You should go if you can.
take the kids or go yourself! Beautiful "restored" carousel saved from the wrecker with hand made animals to ride. Solar + volunteer driven, rides only $1. If visiting Ned, you have to stop in - better than a frozen grandpa any day!
We loved it! The obvious care and dedication given to the hand carved animals is inspirational especially compared to the standard commercial fare for kids.
1$ to ride, new things pop up every time that I didn't notice before. It really does invoke happiness :)
Coolest carousel ever, once you ride it , it''ll make all the other ones you've been on look like poop! I go out of my way to make that a stop for anyone visiting and wanting to have fun in Coolorado!
Super fun Carousel, great story in how it came to be. First class. Must do in Ned especially if you have kids.
