COSI is now closed

Relive your childhood and spend the night at COSI! Based off of COSI’s successful Camp-In program, COSI Up All Night gives our 21 and over guests special access to COSI all night long! “Campers” can take advantage of a cash bar while exploring COSI’s classic exhibits, watching a Giant Screen film or Planetarium show, or checking out a live show. AND, compete with other campers in a building-wide scavenger hunt!

February 18th - 19th

For this event only, be one of the few who can experience our newest traveling exhibition, MINDBENDER MANSION & AMAZING MAZES, all night long! This utterly addictive experience combines two incredible exhibits full of brainteasers and interactive challenges guaranteed to test the brainpower and problem solving skills of even the most experienced puzzlers.

Your camping experience begins at 7pm at check-in followed by a COSI Up All Night Kickoff Reception at 9pm with a complimentary cocktail. All of this excitement is sure to build up an appetite! Don’t miss the “Late Night Bite” at 11pm.

Don’t think you can make it all night long? Don’t worry – “campsites” will be available to take a break and get some shut eye. Wake up will be at 7am and you’ll head down to a light breakfast in the Atomic Café before heading home at 9am.

Bring your pillows, blankets, and sleeping bags and prepare yourself for this one-of-a-kind experience!
