    The black hole room is the only good thing here. It's not worth the money.

    Unless you have a buy-one-get-one coupon, don't bother with this. Overpriced & not that cool

    If you go there try the rolling tongue mirror! You won't regret it, and it definitely will be a great reward

    Check out the black hole. Try walking through it looking down at the floor. It's easier to keep balance.
