The Carousel, Geelong Reviews

  • Carousel itself is very good but behaviour from some (not all) staffers are bit rude. It even crossed my mind whether it is because of our color?! Who knows?!

  • Kids loved it. Ladies in ticket office were very blunt. Had to pay for my 2 month old because I had to hold him while supervising my 4yo.

  • I love it. The carousel is just beautiful and the ride was fun as well.

  • Lovely place for children to have a go on a musical horse carouse. Will enchant children and adults alike, also has a few seating options allowing for adults to ride with younger children who can't sit on the horses by themselves or if they wish, can stand with the child supporting them on the horse modelled seats

  • Ride went for much longer than anticipated. Very good value for money.
