A great visit for children and adults alike, a fun way to view the city and learn about its history.
With so many fun optical illusions and other curiosities on offer... Can you find your way out of the Magical Mirror Maze? Will you manage to stay on your feet in the Vortex Tunnel? There are amazing 3D and live webcams that you can control, also the giant pinhole camera where you can laugh as your friends appear upside-down!
You can even shrink yourself like Alice in Wonderland but be careful, you don't want to lose your head in the incredible Severed Head illusion!
