I'm not sure if I had high expectations that were not met, or if this place is just nothing like they advertise it to be. Anyway, they tell you the tour lasts almost an hour, but we were out in less than 30 minutes (maybe even 20 min) and that includes photography time and trying out a lot of the stuff inside. Probably a-9-year old would have fun in here but that's about it. On a positive note, the staff was really nice and welcoming.

Great new attraction for Sabahan and tourist. Initially I though it is a simple 3D art gallery. However, found out to be fun and interesting Illusions Gallery. Most of the sections are interactive, so be sure to come with your friends and family. The facility is fully air conditioned with sufficient parking and toilets. A guide will accompany you through the tour and provide detail explanation. Also, be sure to check ticket price before visit. They offered variety of discount for Malaysian who visit in group. Be sure to bring your camera.

Having visited Art In Paradise in Chiang Mai, I had a baseline to compare Grand Illusions to. I tried not to be too judgmental as this place is much smaller. I was pleasantly surprised as the exhibits here are much more interactive. The major difference is that there is a "guide" which brings you through the exhibits. Which is a good and bad thing. The good part is that everything is explained and you know what to do, the bad is that you are not allowed to go at your own pace and view every single thing. I suspect this is necessary if there are many groups but during my visit there wasn't a group in waiting after mine so I don't understand why we were put through the normal pace which I found quite speedy. As mentioned before, most of the exhibits are interactive so everyone gets to try something. This is right from the beginning at the main lobby area. Useful if you have to wait for another group to finish. Due to the place being airconditioned, it is perfect for getting out of the rain or hot sun. Parking seems to be limited though. I paid RM140 for 5 adults and 2 children (11 and 7). Make sure you have a good camera handy. Some exhibits can cause dizziness, so those suffering from vertigo issues should state up front.

For the first time my family and I go to this place and i said "what is this place? This building so small and this is you called 'big'?" In the beginning, i am so boring but in the minute i walk into the building and I said "WOW!!" It is so cool! I never seen that in my life but if you come here you know it..
