After much anticipation Gulliver’s Gate, 216 West 44th street, the world’s newest interactive miniature experience in Times Square, opened it’s door to it’s lilliputian spectacular world.
Gulliver’s Gate Co-Founders Eiran Gazit and Michael Langer cut the ribbon cutting to celebrate the 49,000 square foot space of over 300 built-to-scale miniature models of scenes from around the world, including New York, South America, Europe, Asia, Israel and many more. Throughout the attraction, hundreds of interactive moving model trains and vehicles, ships that sail, cable cars, balloons and more are accessible with just the turn of a key.

The project has been in the works since 2014, with a team of about 600 artists from around the world who built their own perspective region. In addition to the state-of-the-art models, Gulliver’s Gate offers all guests the opportunity to create miniature versions of themselves. After getting scanned in the attraction’s 3D scanner, guests have the option to become a permanent fixture as a “model citizen” of Gulliver’s Gate.
The attraction begins in New York, where taxi’s subways and people are in abundant. Prominent landmarks have little gems to be found such as Spider-Man hanging off the Brooklyn Bridge.
Within these walls travel to the Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Switzerland,China’s Forbidden City.
Or even the pyramids of Egypt.
Gulliver’s Gate is impressive and overwhelming and you will definitely want to spend at least an hour if not two or three discovering the magic.
Your Guest Key unlocks interactive surprises throughout the model, bringing it to life in unexpected and delightful ways.
