In the Ames Room, you can watch your parents shrink and grow in front of you, or picture yourself as a giant. The room's concept has been widely used in TV and movie productions for special effects to show giant characters next to smaller ones. This is why the Hobbits looked much smaller then Gandalf in The Lord of The Rings trilogy.
In the Upside-Down Room you can levitate above the floor, stand on one finger or even walk on the wall. Use your imagination to create the most creative and original pictures.
