Ready to get a big kick out of some really small stuff? Then take the family to Gulliver’s Gate, a football field-sized interactive world of miniatures. Named in honor of the historic story Gulliver’s Travels, it’s the largest, most intricate collection of miniature models on the planet, and it’s right in the middle of Manhattan.
Your crew will feel large and in charge as they experience entire regions shrunk down to Gulliver size. The New York City exhibit alone took nearly a year to create and contains 311 itty-bitty buildings, two bridges, 33 taxis and 47 pizzas (of course). Asia’s model takes up half a city block, boasting a tiny Taj Mahal and even Pokemon on Mt. Fuji while mini Europe includes cityscapes, classic landmarks and even a bunch of tourists banding together to straighten that pesky Leaning Tower of Pisa. And then there’s the Middle East, Latin America, Russia and quaint New England to hit too. Bottom line: The place is a teeny-tiny trip around the world right in Times Square, and it’s got winter weekend written all over it.
