Things to do at Puzzling Place review

Puzzling Place in Keswick, Cumbria is a fun attraction with illusion exhibits, a gallery of holograms and 3D images plus a puzzle shop.

In the Ames forced perspective room you can grow and shrink your family. See and experience how your brain can be tricked into believing that people are growing and shrinking as they walk across a room. The anti gravity room is the only room of its kind in the country. Balls roll uphill, water flows at an unnatural angle and everyone appears to stand at an impossible slant and lean effortlessly into space without falling.

The eyelusions exhibit has some of the best optical illusions with interactive exhibits, artwork and sculptures. With a chair of illusion, interactive pond and more. You can walk through a giant impossible triangle, shake your own hand, rub out a family member and watch your skin crawl. The hologram gallery has over 60 holograms. Images will change, appear and disappear before your eyes.
