About the Cosmos Mystery Area


Here's your chance to visit the strangest place in the Black Hills; a interactive attraction where water runs uphill, where you can stand on walls, and the laws of physics are thrown out the window. Inside of the Mystery House, it feels like gravity no longer exists and another force is pulling at you while you're standing still. Surfaces may appear level, but you'll find out that they aren't at all. You have to experience this area to truly believe it.

History of the Cosmos


The Cosmos Mystery Area was discovered on accident. In 1952, two boys in college were searching the forest of Black Hills in search of the perfect spot to build a cabin for summer adventures. While searching, they stumbled upon this amazing area. They realized what they had found and experimented with the area, seeing what else they could find. The next year, they opened up their findings to the public; the old cabin and the surrounding area have been blowing minds since 1953.
