Loved it! Don't miss this.

What a fun place! Our guide was Michael--he made the experience a lot of fun and entertaining. The idea of defying gravity and balance was very clever!

I wouldn't recommend this place for people who have physical walking limitations.

Don't Go Pregnant
Jul 2021
Let me start by saying DO NOT GO PREGNANT. I have been here several times and have always been fine. Going pregnant really messed with my vertigo and made me feel so sick that I had to step out early.
My boyfriend and I took his 5 year old. It was a first time for both of them and they really enjoyed it. I do wish they did a couple more demonstrations or things for the kids because it's a lot of talking and the kids get bored really easy waiting to try things for themselves.
We also did the geode cracking, which the 5 year old enjoyed because of the "diamonds" in the rocks.

Fun Place

Visited 7/21/21. Grandkids loved it, and even though it was poring rain they still had a good time. Guide tried to make it funny and was very pleasant.

Must-See Stop For Kids
Jul 2021
We decided to check out the Cosmo Mystery Area for my 9 year old son. Of course he loved it and felt completely befuddled at some of the demonstrations. I admit, it is a mystery! He did the geode cracking as well and is so proud of his souvenir that he got to pick and break open himself!

Weird
May 2021
This was fun and weird at the same time, so if you visit, just go with it, and have a good time. Everyone in the car felt a little queasy afterward, and that took a few hours to get over, so if you have any motion sickness or balance issues, just be aware. It was really interesting, and the "tour" guide was bubbly.

Not worth the money
Jul 2021
My teenage boys enjoyed the tricks and optical illusions but my husband and I felt like it was a waste of money. It was 30-40 minutes to walk up a hill and experience a few "tricks". There are better values in town to spend time and money.

Unique and fun
Jun 2021
A fun, mind bending stop. Unique experience, fun demonstrations and quippy jokes from the tour guide kept us laughing and entertained. Our guide seemed very experienced and gave good safety instructions so the tour was best enjoyed by all ages. Very memorable. Be prepared for steep walking (handrails available) and a bit of dizziness.
