Salem needed this improvement and the city did a great job!! The Carousel is wonderfully done, the park and play are for kids is very inviting and well designed. The park hosts trails along the riverfront where people never used to be able to get to. There is adequate parking on the park side and additional parking across the street. The addition of safe crosswalks is a plus!

I actually was invited to a baby shower at the carousel. They had a nice private room near the caraousel and then afterwards everyone had a pass to go on it. It was beautiful. The grounds are really nice, so it's a wonderful place to go on a walk. It was a great place for a baby shower, but I think it would be good for birthdays as well.

The Riverfront Carousel was a wonderful addition to downtown Salem. The park is beautiful and the Carousel is a great place to have a party, spend some time with family, people watch, and let your children experience such a beatifully handcrafted carousel. The quality of the horses are remarkable, and each time I find something new I never saw before. I like that there is a nicely kept playground just on the other side as well. I personally feel that the price is high for one ride. I know my kids, and they want to ride it several times and it adds up quickly. I hate to limit how many rides they can have.

My children (3 and 5) love to go to the carousel! It's all covered, so you can even enjoy this activity on a rainy day, though it's nice to go on a sunny day to also enjoy the playground outside at RIverfront Park. In the past the Carousel has had a coupon in the Entertainment Book for buy tokens get tokens free! (We've been to a birthday party there, but found the party room to be loud and echoey.)

What a fun place for the kids of Salem. The carousel is a new feather in Salem's cap. Free rides on Christmas and frequent flyer cards make the price a little more reasonable for big familes. The horses are beautiful and it's fun to learn all their names. My children enjoy just watching the horses go round and round!

For family fun at a reasonable price in Salem, you can't do much better than the Carousel. The price is reasonable and the annual pass you can buy makes the price even more attractive. It's good fun and after you're done riding you can step outside (in good weather) and enjoy the beautiful water-front park.

They have a gathering room for parties and a gift shop with some very nice items in it. I have never had a bad experience from either the ride or the staff.

PROS: Unique, family oriented
CONS: None I can think of

This past Saturday the Carousel had a anniversary party and advertised that they had free admission and other free events. All that was free was face painting and coloring book pages. I and some friends believe that the advertisement was misleading it appeared to be a free event, even the rides werent free. The rides are $1.25. They were also selling stuff all around the place including clothes and coffee outside, popcorn, iccees, books ect inside. I think they made alot of money this weekend and really wasen't much of an appreciation event. I think it was a little tricky of them. Parents bring thier kids in thinking its free, but then have to pay or have upset kids, and that is dirty business. I will still go there though, just wont buy much :)

PROS: Beutiful horses and building area
CONS: Misleading advertisement, expensive merchandise

The hand crafted Salem Riverfront Carousel is a gem in Salem's crown. This beautiful carousel inspires joy in those who see it and ride it. At $1.25 a ride, the price is good. An annual membership buys unlimited rides and is a great deal for people with children. Additionally, visitors can learn a lot by visiting the workshop and seeing horses being carved.

Salem's riverfront Carousel is a great place to take the family. The carousel was recently built and is just beautiful. It is in pristine condition and well kept. The tickets are very cheap for the children to ride. You can have birthday parties there as well. The carousel sits in a large park which makes this place perfect for the family. If you are looking for affordable family fun pack a picnic and head down to the carousel.
