About the Zoetrope

Step behind the black curtains in Sensations to see the most detailed optical illusion in Screen Worlds. Watch our 3D Zoetrope spin the characters from Ty the Tasmanian Tiger to life!

Hidden at the back of Screen Worlds, the Zoetrope features a large, circular platform with 3D figurines attached at different tiers. When the music begins, the carousel spins and the figurines move at a rapid speed. Illuminated by strobe lights, and ‘tricked’ by the close movements of the models, we see the characters come to life before our very eyes.

When it spins, watch out for the little animals... The dancing crab, waving cockatoo and disappearing mouse are the best part of this very elaborate illusion.
