The Puzzling Place is exactly what its name suggests: a puzzling house of brain-twisting decor. Test your alacrity with the puzzles in the puzzle area at the top of the stairs and throughout the shop; both are free to enter. A small entrance fee will get you into the main attraction, the World of Illusion, which contains an "anti-gravity" room, a hologram gallery, and the "Eyelusions" exhibit. Be forewarned: The reality-bending exhibits might leave you reeling with laughter and dizziness.
