Tactile Dome

I went to San Francisco’s Exploratorium with my girlfriend and some friends the other day. It’s a big museum with a bunch of interactive science exhibits. You learn about magnets, optics, human behavior, electricity, you name it. But the best thing to do there is the Tactile Dome, hands down. 

The Tactile Dome costs extra but it’s worth it. It’s basically an obstacle course/maze with a twist: it’s pitch black. You have to stumble through it blindly. You feel around trying to find your way out. Some rooms force you to crawl. You climb up a rope ladder. There are slides. It’s exhilarating and exciting and a unique experience. I particularly enjoyed staying still in one spot and then scaring the shit out of my girlfriend when she came close.

The Tactile Dome was created by Nicholas Cage’s father. Seriously. I’ll end my post with that fun fact.

Mirror Maze

A mirror maze is a common attraction at fairs and amusement parks. It’s a maze in which the walls are lined with mirrors, making it much harder to find your way out. It’s really easy to get disorientated. You can cheat and look at the ground, but that’s not fun. You want to get lost. You want to get confused. That’s why you went in. What you think is a straight hallway is really a dead end. You’ll think that you can go left, but end up smacking face first into a mirror. You’ll see your friend walking towards you and suddenly there’s three of him and you’re not sure which one is real and which ones are reflections. You would lose your mind if you weren’t so busy laughing. It’s fun, but I wouldn’t spend more than a few bucks to do it.
