We love riding carousels and there are plenty here to ride. It is fun to do the circuit and receive tickets and then receive a button at the end once you have ridden all the carousels in the area.

We got to see this carousel but not able to get on it or inside it. It is closed for restoration. So, I can only rate it on seeing it through a locked gate.

I have been to this carousel many times. It is one of the many carousels in the Binghamton area. Just a good old fashioned merry-go-round. I grew up in this area and it's always a special treat to go to Ross Park and see the...More
