Great Northern Carousel

This certainly isn't your ordinary carousel! This world-class, hand-carved, work of art consists of 37 unique Montana animals and 14 Helena scenic-carved rounding boards and stained glass artwork. In fact, the National Carousel Association said it is the finest carousel in the nation, if not one of the finest in the world.

Riders can choose to whirl around on a Big Horn Sheep, Buffalo, Cutthroat Trout, Grizzly Bear, Otter, Bobcat, Mountain Goat, Frog, Rabbit and Horse, just to name a few. After you've had the ride of your life, enjoy the best homemade ice cream in Montana with over 36 flavors to choose from. The Carousel is also a great place to hold your next birthday party, summer barbeque, company social or private party. Every Thursday this summer join us for Out To Lunch - live music and food vendors in the town center. The Great Northern Carousel is located in the Great Northern Town Center on the north end of Downtown Helena, next to Carroll College. Call (406) 457-5353 for more information or visit www.gncarousel.com.

The Great Northern Carousel is dedicated to good, wholesome fun for kids of all ages. All folks and families are welcome to ride and smile and sing and whoop and make friends with all of the Carousel animals, their caretakers and each other. May it be a place where the everyday world is left in the dust while you and your critter leap with boundless energy along the most glorious trails of your imagination. ~Alan and Nancy Nicholson and Family
