What They’re Known for: Their convenience and food options. Although Merry-Go-Round offers a fast way to eat, the food station by no means only offers unhealthy foods. You can find great healthy options including sweet potato fries, hearty salads, and even fresh veggies. If you are feeling like you have a sweet tooth, don’t hesitate to grab a delicious dessert. Merry-Go-Round has a variety of sweet options including parfaits, brownies, cakes, and strudels.
What to Watch for: The crowd. Because of the convenience here, you will find that the place fills up quickly. You may have to wait in line while the crowd dies down, or take another run and try again your next time up the lift. Likewise, the crowd can also make for limited elbow room and foot paths.
