The Curious Corner Chamarel

The definition of the word ‘Curious’ in the English Oxford dictionaries is ‘eager to know or learn something’. Therefore curiosity is definitely one of mankind’s distinctive characteristics. It is partly through their curiosity that human beings have been able to create and shape the environment that we now live in. The whole concept of the Curious Corner of Chamarel is on arousing your curiosity. Located opposite the Seven Coloured Earths in Chamarel, Curious Corner is the first of its kind in Mauritius.

The different attractions (the fart chair, optical illusions, mirror maze among others) will make you question reality and illusion. There is a gallery of interactive illusions and art both indoor and outdoor. At the entrance itself, the entry wall features the illusion of the front of a vehicle coming through the wall. You will be able to explore a place where things are not what they seem, and have fun irrespective of your age.

The staff are always around to help, inform and guide you if you have questions as well as take pictures for you and your family / friends as this is surely a place for crazy photo opportunities.

Here’s are some of the attractions that you will encounter:

The upside down room
In this room, turn your world upside down and defy Newton’s theory of gravity. Have you ever imagined living in an upside down house? Get a glimpse of it by exploring a kitchen, living room and dining room in upside down where the floor becomes the ceiling and vice versa.

The Ames room
The Ames Room is a family favorite for taking great pictures together. In this room you can choose whether you want to be tiny or a giant. The one standing on the left corner of the room appears tiny compared to the one standing in the right corner who appears as a giant. If seeing is believing, this attraction will surely get the wheels turning!
