To show off the upcoming TV show on National Geographic Brain Games is having some free illusions to try out at the Hollywood and Highland Center this weekend. Here are the four illusions you can try out for free Saturday. Brain Games is  premiering on Monday, January 13 at 9pm.

  • Small Person in Chair – Designed to trick the eye’s perception, this illusion features a chair that will shrink visitors down to a fraction of their natural size. This illusion will have everyone second-guessing whether it’s the person that is really small or the chair that’s oddly large.
  • Upside Down Room – Could Isaac Newton have been wrong? This illusion will have guests standing on the ceiling of a living room leaving everyone to wonder which way is up and which way is down. Could it be? Or, was the room built to see things from a different perspective?
  • Levitation – Brain-trickery is a funny thing. This experiment will have jaws on the floor as participants levitate alongside a NatGeo logo. Those who attend the event will learn the secret power behind this illusion, an impressive example of how things aren’t always what they may seem.
  • Head On Table – Pushing the envelope of mystery, this illusion will bring the mind to thinking the impossible: participants heads sitting on a table, detached from their body. In this experiment, mirrors play a deceptive role.
