“Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

Great little place, tucked away upstairs down a side street, but well worth a visit.
Plenty of people smiling at all sorts of things to make you think.
No wheelchair or bathroom facilities.

“Best place we've been to on family holidays!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

Great fun, loved the different sections, especially the perspective room and no gravity room. Very puzzling, would reccomend everyone to go! Me, my sister and parents enjoyed thoroughly. Worth the money, would pay more!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

After reading the reviews on here we decided to drive to Keswick and include this as part of our vist. We found it a little hard to find and when we turned up we found it very disappointing.
It was extremely hot inside but the fans inside didn't seem to do much to cool the area down. It was really busy with all the images and attractions to close to each other. We were really disappointed by the attraction and feel it could be so much better.

“Definitely worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

A bit hard to find - we had to ask for directions but was fascinating for adults and children. Kids had a wonderful time and so did my husband and I - illusions are fascinating - and you actually take part in them! took some lovely pics too.
