Can someone please explain these stairs to me?!

I saw this video today and for the life of me, I don’t understand how these stairs are even possible! Do you? If you do and you are an architect or pretend to be one, tell me how these stairs work. It’s been trippin’ out my mind all day long. I love illusions, but this one I just can’t figure out. Enjoy the video!

  1. Jungle Girl, there must still be mist in my brain from the lashing rain outside because I can’t figure out how this works. Perhaps it all has to do with Math, which, being a foreign language to me, is quite possible. At any rate, I would avoid this building at all costs. lol

    1. Please do! Your Bitter Amusement Park is funny to begin with, why not upset your patrons even more by building a fake 5 story ride and stick these stairs in there and tell them to walk up five flights of stairs? Haha. 😀 You’re welcome! 😛

      1. I can’t wait to see the frustration on the kids faces when they try to get to ride only to be bitterly disappointed that they are just standing on an eternal staircase.

    Hi, Java Girl:

    What you have here is a real, live “Escher Stairs”. Someone needs to call Artie, Myka, Pete, Claudia and Mrs. Frederic. Because this section of staircase escaped from “The Escher Vault” inside “Warehouse-13”.

    I cannot explain it, but it is very cool!

My Lords and Ladies, tell me thine thoughts if it pleases thee below...
