How long does it take to experience Kaleidoscope?
The installation takes about 10-30 mins to move through. Tickets are for 30 min sessions, and patrons may arrive and exit at any time during their session window. The artist recommends patrons allow themselves to be submerged in the experience and take at least 20 minutes.
What does it cost?
Tickets are $16.50 for adults, and free for children 5yrs and under, and adults 75yrs and older.
Can I purchase tickets onsite?
To avoid queues, we recommend buying tickets online prior to arrival however they can be purchased on-site during opening hours.
What if I’m late for my session?
We strongly encourage you to arrive for the session you have booked for however, we may be able to accommodate you for another session on the same day. You may have to wait a little longer to enter during peak times.
Is there a difference between day and night?
Kaleidoscope is an immersive experience that is different by day and night. In the evening, coloured lights illuminate the mirrors walls. During the day the experience is more serene with reflections of the surrounding landscape and sky throughout the space. We encourage you to immerse yourself in both experiences.
What if it rains?
Kaleidoscope has an opened ceiling so if it is raining you will get wet. It will remain opened in light rain; it can be quite beautiful however if you’d rather not get wet, you can request an exchange for another session.
In the event of inclement weather that may impact your safety, the installation will temporarily close. If you have purchased tickets for a session that has been cancelled as a result, you will be contacted via SMS/email and can arrange a refund or an exchange to another session. Note: the floor is painted with grip paint to minimise the potential for slips.
What if I get lost inside?
Our friendly staff will be located inside the installation, able to assist patrons who are lost, either by providing a clue or directly leading them to the exit.
Is Kaleidoscope accessible?
Kaleidoscope is fully wheelchair accessible.
It is a very sensory and sometimes disorientating experience; some patrons may find this to be uncomfortable.
