Eureka Room

The location has changed but the amazing wackiness has not. Its new spot is 1408 East Cesar Chavez Street. $25 per person is a little steep, but understandable given its a small space. Book ahead online, either in advance, or try to find times already partially booked for the best experience. Being able to share the weirdness with others is the best part.

The Eureka Room

This mysterious experience room currently exists in the home of creator Mike Stefanik. It's an 8x10-ft. room filled with 14,000 LEDs, video, and music that visitors use to interact with each other in bizarre programs such "House of Psych," "Can I Borrow a Pen," and "Turkey Volcano." Weird, wacky, immersive fun.
