Great Northern Carousel & Ice Cream Co.

The Great Northern Carousel is a modern hand built menagerie carousel reminiscent of the splendid, turn-of-the-century carousels. Most of the 37 animals and one chariot were hand-carved by Ed Roth of Long Beach, California and hand painted by Bette Largent of Spokane, Washington. Todd Goings built the mechanism in Marion, Ohio and also built the spinning tub for the carousel.  And, local artist Mary Harris created the original glass artwork depicting Helena area landmarks and scenery on the Carousel rounding boards.

Besides the traditional horses, frogs and rabbits, there are native Montana wildlife such as antelope, a grizzly bear, bobcats, a buffalo, and even a cutthroat trout! Connected to the 40’ carousel is the Great Northern Ice Cream Company featuring homemade ice cream and fudge. The Gift Shop offers a wide array of gifts, toys and collectibles for people of all ages.  Plus, there is a party room to rent for any occasion imaginable such as birthdays, anniversaries or even hosting fund-raisers.
