Owner description: A unique exhibition based on optical illusion. Witness balls rolling uphill in the antigravity room, visibly grow and shrink in the Ames room and be amazed by our interactive optical illusion exhibits, artwork and sculptures, as well as the hologram gallery!

Good place that is great fun! Good price to get in and although it is a bit shabby in places it held my 3 year olds interest entirely. Good little gift shop too with reasonable prices. They are also dog friendly too which is fantastic!

Great place to kill a couple of hours especially if it's raining. We all loved it. Not overpriced. Well worth a visit.

This place isn't just for children, we are two mature adults who had a very enjoyable time. I recommend the chair that goes uphill, haven't laughed so much for ages.

Difficult to find but one of the best places we visited during a week in the lakes. Don't be put off by the entrance and skinny stairs or the ranch style doors to the attraction. It was the best £11 for a family of 3 I spent all week. We have put off a visit for many years but now our daughter is a teenager thought it was the right time to visit. We weren't let down as she could try all of the illusions. The slanty rooms were superb and many illusions left you scratching your head. Fortunately all exhibits also include an explanation of what is happening. Definitely a great hour spent.
