We stopped here on our cross country trip because it was on our way. It is a pretty cool experience but I wouldn't make a special trip out of your way to see it. Lots of places close by to eat and stretch your legs....More

Stopped here after having dinner downtown. It's not very exciting. The echo was kind of cool, but other than that, not much to see.

My girls--16 y/a-- were non-committal about trekking there, but we forced them to go. One tried to act excited after looking it up on her phone, but it was hoopla that just simply didn't deliver anything. Don't waste your time.

I was amazed when I stopped here. I had so much fun standing at the Center of the Universe and experiencing the effects of the spot.

It is easily accessible, short walk from parking. There is not much to see, not much to do. It is fun to say you've been there, but don't expect something amazing.

As noted by other reviewers there is no signage. What does it do? When you stand directly, and I mean directly, in the center you will hear an echo of your voice that you will assume is playing tricks on your ears. Your friends or...More
