Computer generated kaladoscope show in a very tiny room... When we went it was empty so we got to lie on the floor and view the show on the ceiling... They have 3 different shows- we say the change of the seasons.,

We stopped to see the kaleidoscope. Fhe store was very nice with lots of kaleidoscopes and the like for sale - overpriced I thought.....but I would not know any better. The show was nice. Best to watch it while on your back instead of on the seat things. Aside from the shopping this is a 30 minute stop on your... More

The ten minute show was unique as this is the world's largest kaleidoscope . The shop attached to it had hundreds of beautiful and unusual kaleidoscopes for sale from artists all over the US.

We were staying at the hotel and realize there is a kaleidoscope store with a giant kaleidoscope to see. Went there, it was something that you saw once and probably is good for life kind of experience. But the store itself has a huge collection of kaleidoscopes which my husband and I enjoyed very much. We tried out different ones... More

If your passing by then sure stop by, it was 5$ per adult, my boys 6 & 8 were free. Nothing spectacular but neat to see "world's largest telescope". I would recommend laying on floor if possible. I thought that the lady running it was not kid friendly (didn't get her name though). Its definitely a once and done thing,... More

The tube of the "World's Largest Kaleidoscope" is contained in an old barn silo at an attractive site site near Hunter Mountain. You lean back on padded leaning benches to watch the exciting, colorful audio visual presentation above you. Great music accompanies the flowing patriotic themes above you. Great gift shop, great snack food and carefully maintained. Easy parking.
