Yeah, I never figured out how they did that.  I've seen it on t.v. (or maybe it was another one somewhere).  Water flows uphill, stuff like that.

well i see two options

1) its real. :)

2) its built in such a clever way as to appear to be on a slope, possibly taking advantage of some clues in the context of the place.


i remember as a kid going on a 'magical house' ride with my lil sister and it consisted of us being sat in some kind of fairground ride type seating and the house would move around us.. or we'd move or something... it made you think you were upside down.. but werent or something... all very confusing... lol

^^ Yeah, there are ways to make things appear to move, for instance I went to Ripley's Believe It or Not about 2 years ago down at the beach (Ocean Drive, Baby!!!!) and near the end of the walk, they had a room you walked into with swirling walls, it made the floor look as if it was tilted severely to the side.... you almost fell down, but it's just because your head was playing tricks on your equilibrium.  

p.s., ever noticed you and I are the only ones who care about any of this?
