Price seemed fair, my five year old could do most things, some on his own and some with an adult. Only a few things he wasn't tall enough for. The train was so cute. The people really stood out tho, they all went above and beyond to be kind and friendly. They seemed like a great working community.
City Park Carousel Experience was fantastic!!! Loved riding on the Carousel and the Tilt A Whirl was so much fun too! Christmas lights were great and enjoyed the train ride also! Fantastic evening🤗
