This attraction was included in our ticket to the caverns so we had to stop in and see what it was all about. My boys enjoyed it (3, 8, 10). The floats are enormous and yes, you are able to get on some of them (but not all) We went on a very very slow day so we were the... More

It was wonderful to see in person floats that maybe I'd once seen on television in the Rose Parade or Presidential Inaugurations. There are also stages and other props used at political conventions, fighter planes and various other surprises. There was much more here than I expected and I enjoyed visiting.

This huge building contains a myriad of floats from presidential inaugural parades and Rose Bowl parades. The floats are enormous and beautiful. Some are more than 2 stories tall. The float of the American flag must be more than a block long. There is a really cool train garden on the way out. Don't miss it. The grounds outside are... More

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.

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
