The Illusion Farm, despite its name, is not just a place full of magic, tricks and optical illusions. It is also a place full of adventure, fun, playgrounds and education. A visit to the Illusion Farm amusement park is a guarantee of family time, where almost everyone will find something for themselves!
But let’s start with the fact that the Illusion Farm, is a place where you will spend the whole day, and (unlike many other places of this type) you will not spend most of your time here standing in lines. We came here on one hot June Sunday and the longest queue we saw was for…. the ticket office! You can safely bypass it by simply buying a ticket online.
There are queues to the attractions, but longer the reason is the restrictions imposed by security requirements than the crowds of visitors. Of course, there are a lot of people here, but we were positively surprised by the fact that it is not crowded and tight. What’s more, to many attractions, especially the carousels, the kids were able to immediately enter the second turn and spin endlessly ;)
So how do you prepare? Buy your ticket online, see in advance what on-site attractions you’ll want to enjoy that your little ones are too small/big for, and be sure to plan a full day on-site so you’re not rushing anywhere.
We were with a four-year-old and a one-and-a-half-year-old – there was something interesting for each of them, and we were able to enter many places together (there is an age limit in some places and a height limit in others).

Of course, older children will also find something for themselves, and we would even be tempted to say that in two or three years coming here we would have had a lot more fun and adventures.

Attractions at the Illusion Farm
Undoubtedly, the biggest attraction and symbol of the Illusion Farm is the Flying Mystery Cottage. This tilted, yellow-painted house can be seen just after the entrance, on the right. What is unusual about it? Not only is it lopsided, but you can walk into it and feel the vagus go crazy! Seemingly nothing, but after standing in such a house for a while, you can lose comfort and stability. Although we were skeptical at first, after visiting the Flying Mystery Lodge, we recommend this interesting experience to everyone. To avoid standing in line it is worth coming here at the end of the day.
Right next to the Cottage are the most attractions and exhibits with illusions: Museum of Illusions, Giant’s Furniture, Infinity Studios or the eye-catching Levitating Tap just outside the entrance.
Going further, you can enter the Twisted House, Ames Hall, the Flipped Room, the Labyrinth of Mirrors or the Palace of Shadows. You can enter these places together, fun for all is guaranteed ;)
As we have already mentioned, the Illusion Farm is not only about optical illusions, but also about adventures. And so here you can see mummies and learn about the history of ancient Egypt, look into an abandoned mine, relax on the beach among pirates, look for dragons, get lost in a maze or take a raft ride.
And if someone still lacks excitement and excitement, they will find it on the queues and rides. Although here don’t count on rollercoasters straight from Energylandia ;) The fastest and most exciting is Dragon 2.0 where there are no upside-down loops, but only a faster ride ;) Nonetheless, for kids (not parents who want extraterrestrial thrills ;)) it is a super attraction!
Children will definitely want to spend a lot of time on carousels, horse and train rides or inflatables. Some are for toddlers as small as 90 cm, and many can be entered with a parent so even the smallest children will have fun. However, if they are apprehensive about riding on the carousel, the Illusion Farm has prepared a special Bunny enclosure, with safe toys for children under 6 years old. And if that’s still not it, you can go to a country farm and look at real animals.
At the same time, we did not hide the fact that we spent a great deal of time in the playgrounds, which are fantastic here. The best in our opinion is the wooden one, shaded, full of footbridges and interesting swings. Also cool is the so-called. spider’s web playground, but we used it less because it lacked even a patch of shade.
If you want to take shelter from the sun or the rain, the Illusion Farm has an indoor playroom with a monkey grove and a large ball pool. Few people get here, so you can rest peacefully here.
Important points during the stay are various performances: illusionist shows, balloon show, or…. meeting with Kittie the Cat :) Immediately behind the entrance there is a sign with the hours of the shows of the day – it is worth taking them into account and so plan your day to appear at specific times at the stage (we recommend to be a moment earlier to take a seat).
At the end of this enumeration, we must mention the water attractions, which were unfortunately still closed during our visit. However, we are writing to make sure you include swimsuits when packing if you plan to use them.

Restaurants on site
There are several food outlets at the Illusion Farm. There are two restaurants: a pizzeria and one with home-cooked dinners. In addition, we can eat burgers from the food truck, order hot dogs, casseroles, waffles or even pea soup ;) There is also no shortage of ice cream, cold drinks and vending machines.
There are dedicated fire pits on site, so you can come with your food and eat something warm straight from the grill.
The only thing we missed was a cafe to sit down with a good coffee ;)
Price list at the Illusion Farm
A regular ticket costs 59 zlotys, a discounted ticket up to age 16 costs 55 zlotys. Children up to 100 cm enter for a symbolic gold. It is possible to purchase a two-day ticket, and the prices are respectively: PLN 95, PLN 88, PLN 1.
It is possible to purchase a family ticket for 220 PLN (two-day 350 PLN), although this is a saving of only 8 PLN. As a rule, family tickets are more profitable to buy, and we don’t quite understand why this discount is so nominal. The large family card gives a 15% discount.
Another nominal discount is 5% when buying tickets online. This we recommend doing first of all in order to bypass the queue to enter.
On-site parking is free.
We are glad that we have so far from Lodz to the Illusion Farm. If it were closer we would definitely be too frequent visitors ;)
We definitely recommend this place to you. A wide range of attractions will ensure that children of all ages will find something to enjoy here and will not want to leave the Farm.
