This carousel is amazing, 4 adults went on and it was like re living your childhood, very reasonable price and quite a long ride. If you visit the park you can't leave without a go. 👍🎠🇺🇸🌳

The carousel is covered and is $3 per rider. Children under five must ride with an adult who must also get a ticket. It lasts several minutes and a photographer is onboard. You can buy the photo later if you want. My kids enjoyed it....More

When i saw a big crowd of kids i realised there has to be something fun for them. Trump's carousel is a small carousel in a built up sheltered space. Easily accessible

The fact that I had to pay an additional $3 to stand next to my not even two year old while she rode this is ridiculous. Trump is netting nearly a $90k per month profit on this thing already. That said, it's a great carousel....More

Although we have been to Central Park many times, we had never taken time to go to the carousel. It will now be on the itinerary for every trip. 5 minutes of great fun for $3.00! The horses are gorgeous. Over 100 years old and...More

In the middle of Central Park is a carousel. Lots of fun to write an American around whether you're a kid or an adult. And certainly in a super good setting. And only three dollars.

We spent the afternoon wandering the park, but one of the predetermined stops was the "as seen in movies" carousel. My cousin and I are over 30, but that didn't stop us picking or horses and taking our turn around and around. We felt very...More

Good question. I would call it oompa music but they could be disguised waltzes.
Is it open everyday.

According to NYCTourist, the carousel is open daily from April until October from 10am to 6pm, weather permitting. If it is raining, it likely won't be open, so get info from the telephone number below before making the trip... More
