Former Whistle Pig attractions ride again in North Tonawanda


Niagara Gazette — Inside the museum, Audrey Balsdon, 5, of the Town of Tonawanda and Colin Carlucci, 5, of Kenmore, took a break from the outdoor Kiddieland rides to take a spin on the 1940s kiddie carrousel and play with some of the items in the children's gallery.

"It's awesome," Carlucci said. "I like all of the rides there. I really liked the planes (helicopters)."

Jackie Martin-Balsdon said that Audrey visited the museum recently and got a glimpse of the new rides before they started operation.

"We had to come today," she said, "because she's been talking about it all week."
