“Step back in time….”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The carousel has been beautifully restored to its former glory. Such fun to take the grandkids and kids young and old for a ride on the carousel. This is a must-see and ride attraction if you are in Hull. Please support this remaining attraction from Paragon Park.

“Pleasantly Amused”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

The carousel was beautiful. Not all of the restoration has been completed but what has is just stunning. The ride went for quite a while, longer than expected.

“Family fun and fond memories too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

For anyone looking for a great family attraction I would highly recommend trip to the Carousel. It is the 2nd oldest in North America and the last "grand"carousel. It was voted the most beautiful in the northeast by Yankee Magazine! Next door the museum dedicated to Paragon Park is also a great take. The museum and carousel are very family friendly. They brought back found childhood memories.

“Priceless slice of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

May there always be carousels in this increasingly fast-paced, techno-saturated world! Many people worked very hard to save and lovingly restore this beautiful carousel for the rest of us who remember the magic of choosing our horse (Oh, the black one with purple flowers in her flying mane!) and waving at Nana and Papa as we rode by a dozen times while the music played ... and also so we could share that precious experience with our children and grandchildren. Pure, simple joy!

“Nostalgia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

All that is left of Paragon Park, the carousel still twirls for our grandchildren as it did for us. Please donate to the fund to keep this beautiful piece of art running
