  • This was chosen as a time filler. The carrousel was very nice and affordable. Great for families. Loved the unique menagerie animals. Personally I loved the Giraffe most.  more »
  • It was a great day in Mansfield. So nice to go back to my childhood days of riding a Merry-Go-Round.  more »
  • Very pretty carousel with a nice gift shop attached. Several childrens parties going on when I visited. Parking lot right across the street. Band organ not operating due to parties and cool weather, but during warm weather the building can be opened up and band organ, which is very loud, will then run so I will have to return. Nice little town with nearby places to eat.
  • Very nice family place. Prices are cheap and affordable. They have a beautiful carrousel with rustic wooden rocking chairs all along the outside for parents and grandparents to watch. This is a great place to take kids of all ages.
