Mirror-maze, a popular entertainment concept abroad, better known as Bhul bhullaiya in India, was launched at Metro Junction Mall in Kalyan recently. At the moment, visitors will get to see a Ganesha idol all around.

Proprietor Satish Reddy says, “It is specially designed to celebrate Ganeshotsav. The search for a god within oneself will be an incredible experience for everyone. Several other concepts are also being planned and will be introduced according to the theme of various occasions and festivals.”

A house of mirrors is a traditional attraction at amusement parks internationally. The basic concept behind a house of mirrors is a maze-like puzzle. Visitors walk through an area where mirrors serve as obstacles. Glass panels, lights and sounds create illusion-like effects.

Maze mirrors have been used in many Hollywood movies. Projects director Dr Tanaaz Irani says, “This unique concept is well known in countries like America, Germany, and France. We plan to diversify depending on the response we get.”
