Where is it at?


To reach the Cosmos, go South on HWY 16 from Rapid City past Rockerville until you see the blue entrance sign for the Cosmos. Turn into the left hand access lane and drive down Cosmos Rd. until you reach the Cosmos Mystery Area.

Can I get one of those?


You should certainly stop by the Gift Shop where you can pick up a host of merchandise and gifts, including "I Survived" t-shirts!
