Post #3 Optical Illusion

In my younger years I visited Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum. Near the end of the adventure was a tunnel. I recall this memory due to being tricked by what I was observing. The tunnel was moving in a circular position. The goal was to walk through the tunnel without walking sideways due to the optical illusion. I remember telling myself to stare at the bridge since that was the only object not in motion. This made it easier to cross the bridge to exit the museum. I’ve attached a video below of the optical illusion.  


  1. Hey! I, too, have gone through this type of illusion, however, not at the Ripley's museum sadly. It is very tricky to maintain balance while the entire room is literally spinning! Although, it is a lot of fun. Nice post and this video brings back memories!

  2. I went through this exact thing at the end of the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum when I was younger and I always thought it was so cool and wanted to return just for that (lol). It is really cool and definitely a great example of an optical illusion!

  3. I was at the Key West, Florida Ripley's Believe It or Not museum years ago and they had this with expanded foam painted like 'waves' or clouds an called it 'Eye of the Hurricane'. It rotated slower an had mirrors around the ends, all that added to the equilibrium distortion
