While you’re in town, visit Deja Vu Museum, where the world of magical illusions provides the setting for experiences, including XXL Kaleidoscope, where colors and shapes take over the space; Thunderstorm Room, where visitors are thrust into the heart of a storm; and Star Room, where you’ll feel as though you’re floating among twinkling stars and galaxies. Other illusions include Eye-Tracking Dragon and Room of Spheres.


Plan to take in a performance of OVO, Cirque du Soleil’s latest extraordinary show being staged at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Insects are the theme, from the Flexible Dragonfly and Amazing Ants to Crazy Crickets and Brave Butterflies, who all inhabit a vibrant on-stage ecosystem.
