You have to take off your shoes, your cellphone will be Lock box with a chain for your phoneslocked away in a box that will stay with you, then you may enter the Illusion Room. You have some time to chill and look around the room. When the bell chimes you know your time is up, but unless there are people waiting no one will force you to leave. I wonโ€™t tell you what you will find, but I can tell you I now have a sticker advertising this place on my car!ย
