  • Super neat place! I went for a private event so I didn't have the experience someone would who just walked in, but nonetheless, seeing the floats and how they are constructed was just so cool! The detail is incredible and even more amazing on how the process works. So many neat pieces made of historic and pop culture references. If you can't make it to a parade to see them live or if you enjoyed a parade so much you want to get a closer look, this place is definitely worth checking out!
  • Great place to take your kids. The robot is cool. A little overpriced since they charge $22 per adult and $18 per kid plus additional tip for the tour guide. Well we don’t regret going since it was one-time experience and NO doesn’t have many other options that was kids friendly.
