Beautiful Carousel

I took both my grandchildren on the carousel - ages 1 and 4. It was a lovely ride and the music from Mary Poppins so fun to listen hear too. We had a wonderful ride!!

We went here to take pictures for a wedding, but the entire wedding party was rudely turned away. We were fully prepared to pay to ride the carousel, and were not expecting any special treatment, but we were told this wasn't allowed. They gave us some story about professional photographers in the past vandalizing property, so it's now only allowed... More

Sorry to sound like such a scrooge but all of the glowing 5 star reviews are rather laughable. This is a somewhat dilapidated carousel that you can ride for a handful of minutes. There is a much nicer one at the Chesterfield Mall. The price is thankfully very cheap. The cashier was friendly. The guy running the carousel seemed a... More

We were in town visiting my mom who is in a nursing home. We needed a diversion for our 6 year old so we decided on the Carousel at Faust Park. Best $6 spent. It's a lovely art piece and it was a long 5 minute ride. The vintage organ added to the magic. Kids will love it! The park... More

Went to Faust Park today to ride on the Carousel. It's only $2/person to ride - they have horses and elks to ridge. Afterwards we went over to the playground. Very large and the kids enjoyed it. There are even picnic benches there if you want to bring your lunch.

A gorgeous, old timey carousel.. what more could anyone ask for? Absolutely a must do.... sure, I know carousels aren't like the fast paced thrill ride most kids are used to... but going back in time and riding a gorgeously restored carousel is a part of history that is still accessible and something anyone at any age can do! Great... More

Every out of town visitor gets a stop at Faust Park. Whether it's for a stroll around the grounds or the butterfly house or the Carousel. For a couple bucks you can accompany your youngster or ride next to them. It's just a unique part of my childhood that I enjoy sharing with them.

This is a great indoor carousel, and I would recommend it to anyone with small children. It being indoors is a plus for those hot days. The cost is only $2 per person, and is well worth it, they also have a small gift shop on site.

This is an excellent $2 carousel ride for kids of all ages. Butterfly house is a short walk away and there is a very nice playground also.

My 3 year old niece loves the Carousel in Faust Park. We must visit it every time we visit the Butterfly House, just across the way. The tickets are $2 ea. Some of the horses move up and down and others don't. There are benches if you don't want to sit on a horse. They have a small gift area,... More
