The carousel is beautiful and unique-- the animals that you ride are hand-carved Adirondack wildlife: loon, deer, moose, bobcat, eagle, etc... even a black fly! A magical experience not to be missed!

This Carousel has many animals on it that are hand-carved. Each animal has a particular story. The Ticket teller will come around and tell you the story about your animal. For instance, a doe Joe was our animal. Even though she was female, her name...More
