When you have an attraction based on all things weird, we understand there might be a few questions raised. See below if we can help answer some of the more common ones.

We offer six individual rooms, each themed on different optical, interactive and sculptural illusions. Also between each room are dozens of further examples of artistic illusions and conundrums for your mental pleasure! 

Generally, with shallow ramps between each room you'll be fine, however as the Tilted House is on a 15° angle this may require usage of the by-pass gate at the entry to this room.

No, not all. While the kids will have a blast in here we actually believe adults get just as much enjoyment, if not more, from this area. Adults have more pre-conceived notions about how things should be, so when that gets turned on its head befuddlement and hilarity ensues!

Obviously everyone is different but it is very rare that such issues develop here. There are no strobing lights, loud noise/music and a bypass gate is available for avoiding the Tilted House if required. Talk to our staff on arrival if you have concerns.
