Motion Simulator

COSI’s Motion Simulator uses wide screen, high-definition imagery, surround sound, and motion to take you around the world, into the sky and even out into space!

Please note that the Motion Simulator will be out of service on April 8, 2024.

Each ride is around five minutes long with two minutes of additional time for loading and unloading. We encourage you to ride early in the day! The line to ride the Motion Simulator may close early to ensure all rides take place before the Motion Simulator is scheduled to close.
