ooooh i like this one!

i guess the Strong Museum of Play has a whole section of optical illusion-type stuff, sections that you can walk through. Some staff from work have taken our day-hab participants through it that have autism and physical disorders. The staff felt like they were going to throw up or fall down, however the participants went straight through with no problems. i have been meaning to go check it out myself!
