Calling space loving families! You need to blast off with CAMP and head to space! Even better, this space is easily accessible by subway, taxi or your feet. 🙂 Here’s my honest review of the experience as my daughter and I visited one morning.
What is Cosmic Camp?
Cosmic CAMP is an immersive, interactive experience for anyone who loves space. My 4-year-old described it as a “cool space play place”.
There are games to collect points (and win prizes), physical challenges and immersive environments to play in that just make you feel like you’re in space. Everything is built for kids to interact with, so they can touch everything (adults too!).
When does Cosmic CAMP run until?
You can visit now until October 31st. I would go sooner than later as I think it will sell out towards the end!
What’s the location?
It’s located at the CAMP store on 110 5th Avenue (between 16th/17th). It’s open 7 days a week but see website for specific hours.
How much does it cost?
Tickets are $35 for adults and children (ages 3-12) and can be reserved on the CAMP website here. Tickets grant you 1 hour in space.
Highlights of Cosmic CAMP
Jump through projection-mapped lava pools and physical obstacles, without touching the lava!
This was my daughter’s favorite part, you climb up some stairs into the space station where there’s multiple rooms with buttons, lights and controllers in each. Here she protected the space station from attacking aliens!
When you leave the space station you can exit by stairs or slide. 🙂
Decode Ice Crystals
This was probably my favorite part as it felt like an interactive art installation that my friends built. For pure aesthetics, it’s beautiful.
Throw balls into the black holes!
Earn Points by collecting points (everything is connected to your account via space wristband). When you exit the experience, your team name will show up on the leaderboard with how many points you have.
This was probably her other favorite part as she loves building. There was a big table of very cool blocks that I need to tell Santa about.
Robotics / Pilot Rovers
Did Enceladus like it?
Enceladus is named after one of Saturn’s Moons, and she dressed herself in space printed clothing that morning, so of course she loved it! She loved it so much she wants to take Dad on their own solo date to Space in the next few weeks!
