Our species' enthusiasm for spending large sums of money in order to walk through a funhouse of cool-looking sets in which to take photos of themselves and their friends doesn't appear to be ebbing anytime soon. The latest entry into this social-media-fueled entertainment genre—think Ice Cream Museum or 29Rooms or Egg House—is called Dream Machine. This one is marketed as a "surreal-powered playground," and it's been luring large crowds to Williamsburg since it opened in early April.

Dream Machine works like all the others: you buy tickets for a specific, 30-minute time slot (in this case, for $38 each) and make your way with a small group of fellow phone-wielders through a warren of slickly-designed, highly-photogenic rooms. Sometimes these are simply stages, a dramatic photo-op backdrop like the rainbow hallway here, or the patterned-plant garden. Often, though, there's an interactive element, such as the smoky bubbles that are pleasurable to pop, or the impressively deep ball pool, into which you can leap without fear of hitting bottom and easily submerge yourself entirely.

Rounding out the diversions at Dream Machine is an homage to Yayoi Kusama's infinity rooms (or a rip-off, depending on your view of things); a room with puffy clouds; a black-and-white hallway; an enjoyably disorienting walk through mylar streamers hung so thick that visibility is approximately zero; and the inexplicably popular laundromat area, which looks exactly like... a laundromat.

Dream Machine is located at 93 N 9th Street in Williamsburg, between Berry and Wythe. The installation runs through May 31st, hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday through Sunday, and admission is $38 per person. Last weekend was completely sold out.
