Fun­tasy House Trick Art

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Learning -

16 Jalan Mar­ket, Ipoh, Perak (05 255 0007 /fun­ta­sy­house.com). Got a gig­gle out of Pe­nang’s 3-D trick art mu­se­ums? Then you’ll be glad to know that there is a sim­i­lar in­sti­tu­tion in Ipoh. Pun­ning the words ‘fun’ and ‘fan­tasy’, Fun­tasy House Trick Art has gained quite a fol­low­ing since its open­ing in Novem­ber 2015, with vis­i­tors heap­ing praise upon the at­ten­tive staff. Each group of vis­i­tors is as­signed their own guide, who strives his or her best to make you feel at home (hence the ‘house’ ref­er­ence).

Lo­cated in a Straits dual-frontage court­yard shop­house and di­vided into three sec­tions – The Ipoh, The Pun­ish­ment Room and Fan­tasy Fairy Tales – the gal­leries en­cour­age fam­ily bond­ing over laughs. Trompe-l’oeil (French for ‘trick of the eye’) art­work is the name of the game here with 3-D paint­ings cre­ated by lo­cal artists spurring your kids to get cre­ative with their fun­ni­est poses. Lie across a colos­sal chop­ping board, trap your­self within a mer­maid-en­chantress’s crys­tal ball, shrink your sib­ling to fit in­side a ma­gi­cian’s top hat, ful­fil your Harry Pot­ter fan­tasy of rid­ing a broom­stick, and more. Each fan­tas­ti­cal sit­u­a­tion is both ab­surd yet highly en­ter­tain­ing. Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm; Sat-Sun & Pub­lic Hol­i­days, 9am-8pm. Adults, RM19, Chil­dren (4-17 years), Stu­dents (with ID) and Se­nior cit­i­zens (above 60 years old), RM10, Chil­dren (be­low 4 years) and dis­abled, free; (My Kad hold­ers) Adults, RM15.
