The punch ticket is the way to go, because they want to go back for more. They love to ride a different animal each time. The staff is friendly, and you can get ice cream there too.

This indoor carousel was very nice for children and adults riding with their children. The animals were not the usual horses, but fish, bears, rams, etc.
