The lady was super nice . It took us about 30-40 mins to walk through. It is cheesy and nothing that is suprising for the most part. I had high hopes and wish they would put in a little more effort with the exhibits

I wish that I had bothered to read the reviews. Then, I could have saved time and money. This place was horrible. Cheap effects. Mainly copies of old illusions on the walls. Didn’t take 15 minutes to see it all.

I've been to a couple of 'illusion house' exhibits in my time and this is by far the worst. Majority of the 'illusions' are just the transparent mirror cross-fade types and the corridors are lined with wall boxes showing explanations for the types of simple...More

This is such a waste of money. So cheesy and outdated! Even our 6 year old thought it was horrible. I am sick that we paid for this. It should be a free attraction or better yet, just shut down.

This place is just bad. It’s old, the “illusions” are printed from the internet, and a lot of the displays are broken. However, if you enjoy terrible attractions and want to laugh at something weird and terrible, this is the place for you. Aside from...More

My husband and I tried this on a whim just because we saw it as we were walking by. Unfortunately we hadn’t read the reviews first as we decided just as we passed. I really hate to write bad reviews but I feel the need...More

This place is a joke! It looks like it was built 50 years ago and not touched since then. Don’t waste your time or money here.

Price seemed reasonable for the family ($24) until we got inside and I kicked myself for falling for it. I thought the posters outside were retro styled but alas, I think they were just legit 30-40 years old like the rest of the exhibits. It...More

My 5 and 9 year old really wanted to go. It starts off okay and falls flat. You see a few illusions at first, then you go down a hallway reading plaques on magic tricks. Once you get to the end, it's just a black...More
