5 cool things to do with kids in New York City

BY ALICE BURDICK SCHWEIGER

D

eciding what to do with kids in New York City can be a
daunting task, with dozens of exhibits, museums and
sights to choose from. As a New Yorker with two grandsons who live nearby, we have pretty much experienced it all.
If you are taking your grandkids to the Big Apple, here are five
activities I would put at the top of your list:

Gulliver's Gate

An interactive exhibit with a blend of technology. This 50,000
square feet of space has been transformed into a magical miniature world. New York and dozens of other cities and nations
from five continents are recreated in minute detail. New York's
scaled-down city showcases Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the
Brooklyn Bridge with Spider-Man hanging on, the High Line, the
World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial and much more. Taxis,
tunnels, shops, commuters waiting for a subway, have all been
captured.
Gulliver's Gate goes beyond New York City, and replicas of
famous landmarks worldwide can be seen including the Taj Mahal
in India, Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Panama
Canal, the Pyramids in Egypt and the Great Wall of China.
Visitors are given a key when they enter, and while journeying
around the globe, with a turn of their key at different stations,
scenes come to life: a bridge goes up, pedestrians walk, cars
move, tiny people work at their jobs--and so much more.
216 West 44th Street, open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

along the way, and before leaving, they are given a scrapbook
to attach them. There's also a photo machine that will create an
instant picture to be included in the book. And before bidding
adieu, there's a final "meet and greet" with Poppy. The exhibit is
available through May.
218 W. 57th Street. (800) 844-3545.

Trolls The Experience

Created by DreamWorks, this pop-up interactive exhibit will thrill
young fans of the Trolls movie. After being greeted by a guide,
visitors follow a rainbow path to a myriad of fun.
Kids can pick out a wig and have their face painted at the hair
salon, look at themselves in a funhouse mirror, play in a musical
space, catch confetti in an air tunnel and engage in an interactive video game. The journey ends with Poppy's Dance Party. A
3-D screen (special glasses provided) lets guests sing and dance
alongside their favorite Trolls characters that seem to be popping
off the screen, thanks to the 3-D technology.
To make this adventure a lasting memory, kids collect stickers
