  • Our kids really enjoyed it here. Granted, most of it is still shut down, but the kids had a blast. Unlimited rides for the hour, they got off and immediately back on choosing a new horse each time...

  • Wonderful experience, especially for the little ones. Everyone who works there is very kind with a smile on their faces! The old carousel is a blast from the past and definitely worth checking out!
  • Very nice place the beach is very nice has a very nice splash pad.the carousel was not open when we was there. If you want a place to park better get there early because the parking lot fills up quick.
  • We have enjoyed the carousel many times over the years. I completely understand the need to change operations, yet had a very disappointing experience today. We used the QR code outside to book/pay for a ticket for my daughter. My parents and I escorted her in and were informed that everyone entering the building had to pay the $8. When I shared that chaperones needing a ticket was no where posted on the signage outside, one of the clerks was very snotty and said I should have seen it on the website. Well, excuse me, for trying to make the most of our family day and not read every detail. As I was attempting to buy an additional ticket, so one of the adults in my party could go in with my daughter, the clerk continued to argue and kept ranting about me not checking their rules. At that point, I told them they had collected an $8 donation and we left. Thankfully, my daughter was understanding (in fact, at seven, she realized how ridiculous this grown man was acting to our family as paying customers). The other clerk and volunteer were very kind, yet I wish I would have caught the other clerk’s name. All he needed to do was stop arguing and we would have gladly gone in with another ticket purchase. For what it’s worth, the new system doesn’t make much sense… the doors for fresh air are all closed up. Seems like some temporary gates across the doorways would allow for more passengers and less airborne hazard.
  • They changed how they do it and now require you to book a one hour reservation. They will steal your money if someone can not attend the day of. How it went: we were there for the full hour, we got to a ride it a total of two times. And wait in line for the other 50 mins. They sell too many tickets, it is completely packed to where there is no walking room, they say face masks are required, but not one employee was wearing a mask and about 85% of the customers did not have masks on. This new system they set up is terrible and highly suggest you and your family do not waste your time on it. It was not enjoyable in the least.
  • Absolutely loved visiting here! We stopped in St. Joseph for a couple of hours on a road trip along the Lake Michigan coast and the carousel was adorable. It was thoroughly decorated for Halloween, the staff and volunteers were the nicest people, and the atmosphere was fun and festive. Just my husband and I went - no kids - and we loved it!
