This was the first stop on our road trip through NY. I've begged my husband to detour here on the way home from Ithaca many time but he never heeded my requests. This time I had control of the wheel so off we went. This was just silly fun. The show lasted about ten minutes and cost $5 per person.... More

On our way to our Lake George vacation, we were looking for something interesting to check out... we found this little gem outside of Woodstock and it was well worth the trip. Nestled inside an upscale shopping / hotel strip mall in Emerson is this entertaining spot where the largest kaleidoscope lives. For a nominal fee ($5.00) per person -... More

This is a fun quick activity we discovered on a rainy day during one of our mountain getaways. Our kids were under 5 at the time so it's fast, quiet and attention getting. Doesn't kill more than half hour but it's a cute quirky thing to do and a good excuse to lay down in the floor and relax while... More

The kaleidoscope show was fun and funky. We saw it at a quiet time and could lie down on the floor and look straight up. Cool!

The kaleidescope is so big we laid on the floor to watch. The music and display is varied and interesting. It had a 70s feel to it. The entire thing runs 10 or 15 minutes and was entertaining. It was worth the admission price of $5. The kaleidescope store felt overpriced but I don't really have any experience with shopping... More

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.,

I wasn't sure how this would be but it was fun. And the store has a million kalidescopes to see and try. Many are expensive.

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.
