  • We've been to Carousel Gardens several times and love this place. We most recently went for Celebration In the Oaks. We bought tickets online and they opened the gates about 15 mins early. The lights ...  more »
  • I hadn't been to the Carousel Gardens since I was a little kid, when we came here for Jingle Bells and Beer. I really need to make more of a point to come to this part of the park! The park itself is ...  more »

  • This seems like a fantastic spot to bring kids, and honestly, even as an adult you can have some fun here. They sell beer, which is always a plus. Obviously it's geared towards children, but there are things like the carousel, train, and ferris wheel that adults can enjoy. I wouldn't necessarily go here without kids, but the train ride was pretty fun. It's nice that it seems very affordable for families.
  • Kids got the unlimited ride band and had a blast. Looks like they could use s bit better upkeep.
  • Well to start off with the grandkids had a blast and that's what its all about but when it came time for food the express was lacking in a big way! Management really needs to either close it Or run it like it should be run. Other then that I would have gave you five stars. Free parking was a plus since it is hard to find when you are around the French quarter. The Carousel Gardens very clean and well kept. Ride attendants very respectful and great with the children. Keep up the fun but please do something about the Express its an embarrassment...
  • Pretty nice,wjwjwjejejejwnwjwwkwkkqwiwiiw everything is closed tho, its closed today...thats why...okay bye
  • I highly suggest taking some acid or something to make this place fun.
