While I'm usually really skeptical about things like this... I've never seen so many trees bent over like that. Anyway, cool little site. Wife and I enjoyed it and think it was worth the time and money... those on here that cry that it was fake need to pull the stick out of their rear ends... we enjoyed it and will bring the young one by when she gets old enough. Thank you cosmos team.. was fun!

Thank seth a

Friendly staff and we were even given season passes for our paid admission. It's an interesting concept and fun for the kids-nice optical illusions. The kids went geode hunting afterwards. (it was cheaper with the paid tour).

We had a nice stop at Cosmos. It was very interesting place like no other place i have been. Our kids had a great time and thought that the uneven feeling was great! It's a must stop for people of all ages.

This falls into my "tourist trap" category. I think we had a coupon and my daughter really wanted to check it out. They try to have you believe the place is magical bur honestly stuff appears to lean because you're standing on the side of a very steep hill. Not magical.

While there is NO magic. The optical illusion is cool! But this place needs to re-evaluate the price they are charging. It is seriously overpriced for what LITTLE you get! Cheesy guide tries to make it longer by talking to much! It's very cool but half the price is what I would normally pay!
