Have a thing for optical illusions and whimsical experiments? Then you should definitely pay the Science Centre Singapore (SCS) a visit this holiday season!
In celebration of their 40th anniversary, SCS has opened a new permanent installation, titled Professor Crackitt’s Light Fantastic Mirror Maze. According to SG Now, the exhibition features 105 mirror cells, at least 17 interactive exhibits and experiments on light, as well as a whole bunch of holograms and fake exits.
Created by Adrian Fisher Design, the world’s leading creator of mazes and 7-time Guinness World Record holder, the mirror maze actually has a backstory.
It centres on an eccentric, forgetful fictional scientist named Professor Crackitt. He has lost his pet parrot Wattnot and wants patrons to help him find it. While searching for the bird, visitors are encouraged to “fix some of their experiments” along the way. And that’s not all, Professor Crackitt will also throw you nuggets of fun facts about light and reflection.
Deets for the trippy mirror maze are as follows:
- Address: 15 Science Centre Rd, Singapore 609081
- Opening hours: 10am – 6pm
- Tel: +65 6425 2500
