Play City isn't your typical city. Instead of public transportation, its citizens use slides to get from place to place. Instead of being a concrete jungle, its more of a jungle gym. And lastly, its economy is fueled entirely by fun—over 2,000 square feet of fun, to be precise. Inside the indoor play place, kids can let loose as they climb over cushioned bridges or play pretend in jungle gyms made to look like telephone booths. The space allows kids to blow off steam any time of the year, making it a great place to stretch legs during the winter or play in an air-conditioned environment during blistering summer heat. And while kids are getting their daily dose of fun, parents can head over to the adjacent cafe to have their own fun with a relaxing cup of hot coffee.

Washed "in bright candy colors, flashing lights and carnival-style music," as described by the Times, the arcade still keeps plenty of street-fighting games at hand, including Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Fighting alternatives include Guitar Hero, air hockey, basketball, skee-ball, ticketed and car racing games. To reward exceptional gaming, the prize counter stays stocked with goodies such as plastic green soldiers and a large selection of candy. Birthday party option includes: Two-hours of complimentary game play for 6-10 children; games will not dispense tickets during duration of free game play 200 prize tickets per child One pizza that serves ten One 64-ounce bottle of soda Paper plates, cups, and napkins One table and chair; guests are welcome to bring additional chairs, tables, and outside food

The acclaimed 18th century tale, Gulliver's Travels, chronicles a character immersed in a fantastical world, one where a sense of reality is both challenged and expanded. Gulliver's Gate builds upon this notion with a 21st century concept—a re-imagined exhibit of interactive, intricate miniature scenes. Together, the displays span the size of a full city block, each scene portraying a different world region, all connected by over 1,000 minute trains. The immersive, extensively detailed wonder tests worldviews and piques creativity within its life-size onlookers. Gulliver's Gate Exhibits New York City: Model-makers created this version according to the theme "City of Light"—the skyscrapers and major landmarks are alight, illuminating the city's true vibrancy: its millions of residents. Asia: The largest continent on earth is condensed to Gulliver size. It begins with a visit to the Taj Mahal, then travels through Cambodia, Singapore, and Malaysia before reaching China's Great Wall and Forbidden City. Europe: A trip to Europe highlights well-known fictional scenes: Zeus thunders from Mount Olympus and Don Quixote battles his windmill; Viewers can spot natural wonders like the Swiss Alps and the Aurora Borealis, too. Russia: A dream-scape inspired by both czars and poets, this portion incorporates Russia's sprawling winter landscapes and architectural greatness, from the time of the Romanovs, to Tolstoy's enchanted depictions, to modern-day. New England: A spotlight of quintessential east coast Americana comes complete with puritan, rural settings of Massachusetts, windswept beach scenes in Maine, fishing boats and weathered lighthouses off Connecticut's shores, and even Fenway Park. Latin America: The Caribbean, Central, and South America are brought to life, featuring ancient scenes from Mayan and Incan civilizations, natural wonders, and a re-creation of the building of the Panama Canal. The Middle East: Created to explore the influence religion has on a culture's development, the miniature Middle Eastern meccas depict how the architectural influences of Judaism, Islam and Christianity merge together.
