Ripley's Believe It or Not! - San Antonio - Illusion Lab

What is an Illusion?

The light entering your eyes goes directly to your brain as electrical signals. Those signals are then transformed into images — recreations of what you are actually seeing. But sometimes, your mind plays tricks on you and makes you see things that aren’t really there. At Ripley’s Illusion Lab, you can put your brain to the test and discover the weird world of optical illusions, a one-of-a-kind experience where education and entertainment go hand in hand!
