The Carousel of Happiness is worth checking out if you are near the Boulder area and want to go on day trip up to Nederland. This carousel has an amazing story as all the animals were hand carved by one man over the course of 26 years. Maybe not the fanciest Carousel in the US but it definitely has a good soul. Also the carousel has a fully working mechanical music system which has been converted to MIDI so it can play pretty much any song. My son didn't want to leave and at $1 a ride, $10 went a long way!
