The House of Illusion is an area of the Sixth Dimension, appearing mainly in the video games. The area takes on the form of an estate, apparently owned by Lady Illusion, or possibly Lord Fear. The House of Illusion acts as one of the "worlds" in the PC and Playstation 2 video games.
The House of Illusion appears as a stately estate or home, under a featureless blue sky. A water fountain is located in the middle of the estate's foyer, and the only section that doesn't pose a threat to visitors. The grounds lead to the actual House of Illusion which is built on a hill overlooking the estate, highlighted with a pair of giant flowers floating in midair. The entrances to the Horror Hedge Maze and the Drop Down Well are also located in the grounds, as well as a red and white striped tent leading to the Carnival of Doom.
The Horror Hedge Maze
A green-hedge maze built onto the House of Illusion's grounds, appearing as a large, dark and confusing maze, and is home to living garden gnomes, fly-spitting flytrap plants, and sickle and lawnmower-wielding zombies. There are several statues of Lady Illusion decorating the maze, one stone, another silver and another brone and possiblya gold statue.

The House of Illusion
Also called the Freaky Funhouse, itself appears as a seemingly small house with pink and purpled striped walls and a purple roof. The gates to the house are made out of giant candy canes, which lower when a visitor is allowed entry. Inside, the house is very nightmarish and dangerous. Floors are filled with green acid, there are trampolines made out of large spider webs which also hang around the walls and ceilings. Lady Illusion's chamber is located up several floors in the roof, appearing as a white chamber with a large crystal ball in the centre of the room. The house is filled with large candy canes and sweets, and red and white platforms are used to get around.

Little is known about the House of Illusion, but Lady Illusion appears to live there, and Lord Fear also has this location as part of the Carnival of Doom.
Ace Lightning visits the House of Illusion to obtain Lady Illusion's pieces of the Amulet. He encounters Lady Illusion in the Horror Hedge Maze when she disguises herself as a garden gnome, but he recognises her and she retreats. After gaining the Amulet pieces from the maze and the Drop Down Well, Ace explores the House of Illusion until he enters Lady Illusion's room and fights her and giant spiders for her piece of the Amulet. He ultimately wins and departs, warning Lady Illusion to leave Lord Fear's side, whilst she screams for him to take her with him, but he ignores her.
