New exhibit features brain teasers and challenges.
COSI’s latest exhibit is ideal for kids who enjoy using their noodle.
Mindbender Mansion and Amazing Mazes, which opened Jan. 28, features more than 100 puzzles, brain teasers and interactive challenges. The touring exhibition, produced by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, returned to COSI after a popular engagement here in 2013.
Visitors gather clues and passwords as they travel through the exhibit. There are individual and group challenges, including disco hopscotch spelling, keeping pace with a conveyor belt and using rolling chairs to create patterns. Those who gather enough clues can join the Mindbender Society.
Mindbender Mansion and Amazing Mazes continues through April 30. It is included with COSI general admission, which is $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 2-12. For more information, go to cosi.org.
