Defy the laws of gravity. The Gravity Room is one of our most popular exhibits, combining perception and angles to create a uniquely disorienting and educational exhibit. The floor of this room is tilted 25 degrees, resulting in a physically challenging, but mentally stimulating, illusion.
Mind Zone is host to a variety of illusions. It has everything from spinning patterns to an invisible dog. That’s right, be sure to keep an eye out for Pepper, our ghostly (or so it seems) four-legged friend. Check out how scoreboards make moving pictures using only a few lights. See how we trick ourselves everyday with just a few optical clues. And if you’ve ever wondered how a bullet looks if you slowed it down, make sure you check out the clock tower located in the center of Mind Zone.
The MZ TV gives you a break from optical illusions and allows you to make your very own light show. Using your body and some unique camera work, the MZ TV records your motions and plays them back to give you a unique visual experience you have to see to believe. Using time-lapse videoography and a little visual work, even the tiniest of movements give off a huge burst of color.
Become a giant. Shrink your friends. Learn how angles and perspective can be used to create TV magic. In this room that uses skewed angles and proportions, you can watch people shrink or grow without the use of computer-generated special effects.
