Come with us, on the bus, to a world of pure imagination, what you’ll see, will be free and beyond expectations. Yes indeed, World of Illusions at Nation Towers Mall is a Wonka-esque collection of mind-melting 3D optical illusions, mirror rooms and light exhibits, and it’s completely free to visit.

This pop-up bazaar of the bizarre is now open and will be welcoming shoppers to its weird and wonderful ways until January 31.

Illusions of grandeur

The Insta-friendly ‘Mirror Room’ is peppered with nebulous clusters of LED lights in varying sizes and tone, creating a sort of interstellar ‘amongst the stars’ experience.

There are Illusion Photo Opportunities too — interactive exhibits that, when caught through a camera, have been designed to astound and confuddle. You can for example become a disembodied head on a plate, or a jaunty marionette puppet controlled by a sinister giant hand.

There’s a video booth, projecting animated kaleidoscopic backgrounds, to help you capture some truly extra-level selfies.
