    Nice area for children to play. The carousel is the big attraction but there is also a small playground. The toys o the playground are a little worn and the buttons don’t all work but my little one enjoyed it. The flex pass is nice to deal with changes in weather.

    Well maintained and nicely decorated.. Ride is rather quick and size of the carausel cell is smaller than expected

    Price was very reasonable considering that it could be used multiple times and the adult in three bunch was free.
