Beautiful and Ethereal
Mar 2020 • Couples
My husband and I discovered the carousel while walking around the Battery one evening. I HAD to check it out! This concept is beautiful, from the fish to the music, to even the mechanics of the motion.
A star is missing from me because although it has a lock-in car for patrons with wheelchairs (standing was not an option, as per the ride operator), it does not have a regular bench seat like most carousels do. That would be useful for those with mobility (or other) issues who do not use a wheelchair but would prefer to ride sitting down. I will still recommend this to others to visit.

Really beautiful and mesmerising
Sep 2019
Sought this out purposefully as I really wanted to see just how beautiful it was after reading about it online. It didn't disappoint, absolutely mesmerising music and motion of the carousel. There was a steady queue of children waiting to ride it and a steady queue of adults entranced by how beautiful it is/was. The music is really apt too - reminded me of Twin Peaks.

The BEST!

I was visiting NYC with my 12 year-old son and we decided to try out the Sea Glass Carousel. We loved it so much, we went twice! Once during day and one at night. Worth the detour!

So unique!
Feb 2020 • Family
My daughter (16) and her friend wanted to go here while we were in NYC for the weekend for a Broadway show. To be honest, I really didn’t want to make the trek (15-20 minute drive). So glad we did! This was so unique and fun for the girls! We were there on a brisk Sunday afternoon and it was pretty. I can only imagine how it would be in the warmer weather and a litter later in the day when you can see the beautiful lights. They also play soft relaxing music. It was magical! Don’t miss it!

Relaxing music and swirling colors made us feel like little kids in an underwater fantasy. What a completely unique carousel.

This was an awesome place. Pictures don’t even do it justice! My kids are 11 & 7 and we all rode it, adults and children. It was so fun!

A unique take on the age old carousel
Nov 2019 • Couples
My wife had heard about this from a friend and wanted to make sure that we experienced it at night if we were ever in the area. She was very happy when we had a chance last weekend. The place is pretty cool at night with the lights and the reflections off the glass.

Good

This was pretty and would have been better at night. I saw it in a program I watch (Younger) and when we were at the boat saw it in Google maps so just had to try it out! I would say the only thing that let it down was the staff member taking the tickets. He was rude, can't even say please or look up! This was a common occurrence in NY this time around I'm afraid.
