Overview

The Gesa Carousel of Dreams is a world class presentation of a restored 108 year-old Charles Carmel hand carved wooden carousel. The antique horses were individually restored over a 10 year period with loving care to bring them back to life. The facility is open to the public and located in the middle of Southridge Sports and Events Complex along the Highway 395 in Kennewick, Washington. The multi-million dollar carousel is available for rides and photographs. Smiles, laughter and fun memories are provided at no charge. We have a concession stand available in the facility with traditional fare such as burgers, hotdogs, nachos, pretzels, beverages and candy.

Grand daughter was skeptical at first but warned up once she realized the horses weren't going to eat her. Will go back again when she's a little older. She was just over 3.5 years old.

Took my granddaughter who is old enough to reach for the brass ring. Was part of a parth package which was expensive in my opinon and so is riding the carousel, but worth at least a visit to see the beautiful restoration.
