This mall has definitely seen better days. There were several empty lots including at least one anchor. The staff, however, was very helpful and friendly. We came here to ride the carousel 15 minutes before it opened at 10 am, and we discovered the carousel didn’t open until 11. We couldn’t wait that long, so we were guided to the mall office where we explained we had come from Michigan to ride their carousel. They did some searching around, and someone who had operated it before gave us a special ride. This carousel is beautifully kept up. It was the 2nd carousel Carousel Works of Mansfield, OH made (in 1994), therefore the 2nd new wooden carousel ever to be made – quite a distinction! The last classic wooden carousel was made in 1934. Our hope is that this mall can revitalize, but if not, this carousel is worth moving to a new location to continue entertaining people of all ages.
