A great place to take kids for a look back into time. We were the only ones there on a Sunday afternoon in November. The lady at the desk said we could walk around at our discretion and take our time. Very helpful and caring to ensure a good time.
As a kid, we would visit Colorado about twice per year. One time was during the Kit Carson County Fair. My favorite thing in the world was to ride the carousel. I am now 65 years old, and in August we visited the carousel. What an amazing experience. The animals, the music, etc. is all just as I remembered. What... 更多
We travel to visit carrousels all over the world and this is the very best old school carrousel period! The restoration of this 1905 carrousel is truly amazing. The unbelievable animals, the sound system, and the art was beyond all expectations. Be sure to Shang on at full sired you're going 10-12 miles per hour. Only a 2.5 hour drive... 更多
This was a fantastic unscheduled stop also. The museum was small but very informative and the high light of this stop was getting to ride on the Carousel itself! The conductor was very informative and it only cost 25 cents to ride 4 minutes with original music playing!

Plus the ride is only 25¢ and, for another buck, you can check out the museum which is also informative and entertaining. On this trip, the wife had to make... 更多
The story behind this carousel is so interesting and amazing! The fact that everything is about 90% original is just WOW!! It could use a little more signing as it wouldn't be hard to miss. But it was wonderful and staff is well-versed on the history. Beautiful! And a fun ride!
I have seen a lot of carousels as I, my kids and Grandkids have all enjoyed them. This is probably the best I have ever seen. It is just so beautiful. We made a special trip to go see it and I was not disappointed. From the lead animal(a lion) to the speed(it goes 12 miles an hour-very fast for... 更多
