It's nice in the fact that it's unique I wish the ostriches were on the top level. - Bob Miller

First this is NOT the worlds tallest carousel. There is a carousel that is 3 stories high and towers over this machine. The carousel is the machine itself... not the building. There is a organ facade and really looks bad... really bad... like destroyed, I'm not a fan of fiberglass machines especially. - Mike Mills

A fabulous, two-story carousel! It has a nice variety of animals, not just horses. It also has animals of different sizes so a small child can find a smaller mount while an older child can find a larger one. Best carousel EVER! - Trisha Levine
