Go Travel New Zealand - - Wanaka -

A firm be­lief in giv­ing their cus­tomers more “bang for their buck” and en­cour­ag­ing them to truly ab­sorb them­selves in the il­lu­sion­ary them­ing, the team at Puz­zling World have con­tin­u­ously added and im­proved features be­tween each of their five Il­lu­sion Rooms – an area they call “the walls of won­der”. Paint­ings from Alaska and Bali, wall hang­ings from Peru and prints from some of the world’s past and cur­rent lead­ers in il­lu­sion­ary art adorn the walls, demon­strat­ing just how univer­sal the popularity of op­ti­cal il­lu­sions are across the ages and the globe. You’ll dis­cover Canada’s Robert Gon­salves’ works of “mag­i­cal re­al­ism” com­ple­ment­ing the “im­pos­si­ble re­al­ity” of the Dutch mas­ter, M.C Escher at the other end of the business. Fur­ther along, Am­bi­grams, a type of il­lu­sion­ary word-art is ex­plored watched on by NZ’s first Vir­tual As­sis­tant – a pro­jected holo­graphic guide to as­sist cus­tomers within the rooms. An in­cred­i­ble 3-di­men­sional knit of Ein­stein hangs along­side an Amish in­spired cuboid de­sign, fol­lowed by a more walls of brain-bend­ing im­ages and mas­sive win­dow decals to give an ethe­real stained glass feel to the Sculp­til­lu­sion Gallery and the lat­est ad­di­tion? - a huge Len­tic­u­lar im­age of a trans­form­ing Lion – from King to Rasta! Along with many other treats of vis­ual trick­ery, one thing is sure – vis­i­tors to Puz­zling World can ex­pect their eyes and brains won’t be tak­ing a rest!
