If you get a membership it's worth it. If you pay full price it's just too much. We got yearly memberships for the kids (4 and 6) and it was really great because they were at an age where they don't need us in the structures anymore, so it's basically a "kids spend energy while parents relax" deal. There is a lot of space to sit at the "restaurant", which is located right by the structures. So parents can just sit there, use the free wifi, play games (table for 4, so plenty of space) or read, etc. The place feels clean and safe. Yes, there's the arcade that cost extra, but if you learn to say 'no' to your kids you will not have to spend more than the entrance fee to keep them entertained for hours. You cannot bring outside food, they will ask you to go eat outside if you do (personal experience...). They have an ok menu for lunch. Junk food of course, but a couple "healthier" options as well like veggies and grapes. The prices for food are fair for that kind of place. There's a water fountain so no need to bring water bottles. You need socks, even if you don't go in the structures. There's a smaller area especially for kids 0-4 that is great if you want to entertain the baby while the oldest plays. Everytime we went it was at the opening and on weekends, staying there until lunch, and it never felt too crowded, even on rainy days. I would definitely get another membership there. For those hesitating between this place and Tubes et Jujubes, I recommend this place hands down. Bigger, more space for parents, a little cheaper, better divisions.

This place used to be The place to go on rainy days with kids and it was great. Cosmic has not only risen their prices but they've also got rid of a few structures to not replace them.
There is one disturbing fact about this place; the back end of the building has nothing but money sucking arcade games. Not only are you spending an arm & a leg to get in but you have your kid asking for change to play on video games that invites you to either shoot ducks, people (war games) or other horrible themes.
Kids come to Cosmic to spend their energy and play, not being back in front of a screen.
On a brighter note, I do appreciate the cleanliness in this place. As you are in socks it makes a big difference.

Overall, recommended and we will go back.

For those visiting from out of town ....beware that this is not a cheap outing by any stretch of the imagination!! That being said, for locals, the annual family membership is a good investment.

Walking in one cannot help but be impressed with the size of the climbing gym for the children (which supports and is well sized for those adults as well that enjoy partaking with the children).

There was the main section, a arcade section for the children and we also used the toddler section upstairs (never made it into the adult quiet room - does it have a bar fridge - joking). Also noted party rooms for birthdays too.

There are food options which were ... Not cheap but not overly priced either.

The equipment all seemed to be well maintained, clean and the staff was pleasant throughout our time there.

Really big play area that our kids have always enjoyed (from 2 - 7 yrs old) going and getting their energy out.

Their single day admission prices are crazy though, especially considering you even have to pay for parents to get in.

If their prices are more reasonable, we'd go more than once in a blue moon.
