The detail of the monarch butterfly was amazing.
As was the poison dart frog.

The Children Love The Rainforest Carousel
The children loved riding on this carousel. They rode the carousel twice and both times they carefully considered which animal they wanted to ride on.
The below video shows our time riding on the carousel.
We think this carousel is a lovely addition to the rides available in Drusillas Park. We are sure it will be a hit with everyone that visits.
