My daughter and I were on a road trip, on a whim we decided to stop here. It was a great unexpected treat! We had a lot of fun, would definitely do again.

A little bit pricey, but was great fun for the kids and worth it. Fun for the adults as well. Even though you know why it is happening, you brain lies to you so it is crazy :-)

My family enjoyed our time at Cosmos. My daughter is 11 and she had a good time. She talked about it to her friends once we got home. I recommend it.

I was not interested In this at all. But since our RV broke down we tried many places we weren't originally going to go to. It was so great to laugh until your eyes watered! Glad we did it. Our guide was such a nice genuine young man! They let us take our little dog as long as we held... More

We enjoyed a tour of this strange area where gravity doesn't seem to work. We were a family group on a road trip vacation and everyone had a good time at this stop.
