This place is boring, outdated, and not worth $10 a person. It’s non-interactive for the most part, not entertaining, and not worth the time it took to walk through it (about 6 minutes). I’d rather spend the $$$ on another bottle of wine from Tennessee...More

I visited Gatlinburg this weekend with a group of friends and we tried out the world of illusions. It was cool and interesting, and I saw some things I hadn't seen before. Definitely good if you like illusions or brain-teasers. Seems very family-friendly, and we...More

The “illusions” are ridiculously juvenile and it is a super short exhibit. Don’t waste your money. Also, it exits on a back side street that I didn’t care for.

Absolutely terrible, wish I'd read the other reviews before we wasted $17. We had to laugh when we opened a door to what we thought was the next area of the museum and it was the exit. The only illusion here is what they try...More

Very dated. Terrible "illusions". Mainly just facts. Took about 10 minutes to go through. Not worth the $8 a ticket.

Only takes 20 to 30 minutes at most to complete the whole thing. Very dated and a bit lame for adults. Children might enjoy it though. Only benefit was that is provided a break from the heat and sun

I remember visiting this place as a kid and loved it. That was in the late 70's and nothing about the place has changed. It's still uses the same cheesy mirror effects with the same props. $22 for the family and less then five minutes...More
