NileGuide Expert tip:
The park website states: "Open weekends throughout the year and weekdays during the summer, and over Christmas and Easter vacations, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m."
This carousel is fully functional, though it may no be quite as shiny as it once was. It's true this lovely contraption is a historic relic (complete with Stinson 165 organ), but never-mind it keeps working and definitely makes for a fun place to go with kids. Nearby (walking down the hill) is the sprawling Shane's Inspiration playground.
