This is definitely worth a stop it's unexplainable and very interesting in. Like gravity is backwards or does not exist. People of all ages will love it!

Our tour guide was fantastic and the whole family had fun. Even my husband was left trying to figure out how they do it. Very fun especially for those who like science and mystery

We have been here three or four times and always enjoy it. The guided are fun, informative and enthusiastic. If it's science or hokum I don't know or care, it's a fun time!

Our family loved the cosmos. I went as a teenager and took my family back to see it for themselves. My 12 & 10 year old loved it and so did my husband. The staff was extremely friendly and even took time while we were waiting to share with us some other great places in the area to visit.

We went there with our two granddaughters, ages 11 and 12. We all had a great time and everyone is our groups was asked to participate, Even our shy granddaughter took part and loved it. They were so excited at the end and were laughing so hard for the great time they had, this is the place they wanted to... More

The whole outside taller-shorter thing was not very exciting, but the cabin stuff was cool. Even if it is just an optical illusion, the effect on your body is amazing. Did make me feel queezie, but I accepted the fact that would happen. Kids loved it. Tour price and gift shop was reasonably priced.

The Cosmos still amazes me at my age! Visited when I was a child and only remember the corner of the cabin. Now I have taken my kids and wow! The effect it has on your body is crazy. My stomach was queezie inside the cabin and the energy there is phenomenal! Something to remember!

We had a great time here and this is a good family place as long as the children are over 5 years of age. Grandson enjoyed this the most out of everything we did that week.

I'm surprised this attraction got good reviews. It was nothing too special or "cosmic" about it for me. Some interesting tidbits in the beginning of the tour to make your mind wonder, then into the crooked house. This is where I felt terribly ill and so did my family. It will mess with your equilibrium if you are sensitive to... More

As a teen I had been to a "gravity defying" place (not Cosmos), and was awed by it. I wanted me kids to experience the fun & mystery that I had. Cosmos was a 100 times better than the one I had been to at Calico Ghost Town in CA. The tour involves quite a bit of uphill walking, it's... More
