My wife and I did a ride; it was fun. We were the only ones without kids, as ours are fully grown, but it brought back some great memories.

Classic, historic indoor carousel - $3.50 per ride. Love the detailed carving on the horses & chariots and the ironwork on the decorative fencing. This is a nostalgic Central Park must for me, reminiscent of Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye.

The Central Park carousel is a visually attractive feature but it’s nothing out of the ordinary. The kids obviously enjoy it.

We happened upon the carousel when strolling around the park. It was very quiet and we were the only people on the ride. Great fun, and another experience to add to the list.

It’s only $3 for a ride on the famous carousel featured in tons of movies, including now you see me. It’s really nice and fun :)

This was my first time on a carousel and it was so much fun. It was like stepping back in time.
A must if you are visiting Central Park.

All 6 of us went onto the carousel. It's well over 100 years old but for me that just adds to the charm. It was a lovely ride and the kids enjoyed it so that's all that matters.

My nine-year-old loved this and did it twice. The ride was a good length of time and is easy to find. The horses looked really well maintained and beautifully painted. Be aware that it closes in bad weather, including rain.

How sad when you make a once in a lifetime trip and the attraction you wanted to see is closed, I am not sure why but I wanted to give people a heads up to check attractions before you go!
