Hey, that's pretty cool. An American version of Miniatur Wunderland.

I'll have to hop down there and have a look in person.

My boys and I finally made it to Gulliver's Gate in NYC. Nice!

Agreed, John. $36 at the door. $27 or so via various online discount sites.

I'd say worth $27 ... lots to see. Model makers active on site, happy to talk to you.

Do you guys have any idea what real-estate values are like in Times Square? I'm surprised that they can keep the admission fee that low! Their rent and utility bills must be enormous.

That diorama of NYC is stunning! Wonder how long it took to make?
And how really accurate it is, with the smaller buildings?

Ron, the white diorama of NYC is quite accurate. 3D printed in approx 8" x 8" sections from satellite Google scans. You can actually buy individual sections of the city in the gift shop.

I wouldn't say it's a "model railroad", per se. Not too much in terms of functional rail. Rather, it's a scale model of many cities from around the world, done in very, very impressive detail.

So, yes ... worth the price, in my opinion. Check online, though, and your bound to find discount ticket prices.

Enjoy!

They had filed for bankruptcy protection back in October. They were trying to find cheaper premises to rent.
