At the rooftop, you’ll find the stairway to heaven photo zone, which gives you an unobstructed view of the blue sky. It’s a pretty popular photo zone, so you may have to wait around to get a good shot.

If you’re lucky, the weather may be clear and yield a stunning view of the sunset from the rooftop.

Besides the stairway to heaven zone, there are many other photo zones with trippy illusions that rival the Trickeye Museum.
