We liked the strangeness but it actually scared my granddaughter a bit! There are several moving characters that were interesting but to a two year old, scary.

Was awesome to see all the parade floats up close. You were able to get on some and take pictures. Nice place right beside the caverns. Only takes between 30 mins - 1 hr to go through depending on the amount of time spent looking at them.

was truly in Ahhhh the floats are huge, my mouth fell open and it was so much fun to walk around and read all the information on the different floats. You can actually get on some of the floats and some move really amazing. There is a $10.00 fee and that also gets you in another exhibit at the actually... More

The floats were amazing to see. You don't realize how big they are until your actually standing next them. You have the choice of going thru with a guide or walking thru on your own. There are plenty of opportunities to take pictures. This was actually the best part of our day.

I didn't know such a place existed, but I was in the area on business and it was included in my admission to Shenandoah Caverns. It was kind of interesting but also very strange and somewhat disturbing. As other reviewers have mentioned, it could potentially be scary to small children. There were some crying children when I was there, saying... More

There are floats here from many well known parades such as Macy's and the Rose Bowl. They are mammoth and oh so beautiful! Each float is accompanied by a plaque with information to make it even more interesting. Some of the floats have been arranged in a manner that allows visitors to take their pictures while on them, though most... More

If you are into parades (which admittedly I'm not), you might enjoy this place. It reminded me of an acid trip, not that I have any personal experience with such but you get my drift. I am writing this review, however, to warn parents of small children of one thing. In the back, there is an old pumper fire truck.... More

we stayed across at Shenandoah Valley Campground- run by very nice folks that had coupons to the Shenandoah Caverns and American Celebration tour combo. We enjoyed both attractions- Shenandoah Caverns feels more like a cave than Luray (which I loved dipping and squeezing through some spots), and just as specatular w/the amazing rocks. There is also a preveiw of the... More
