This center that houses this impressive pendulum was dedicated in 1950 and named for Carl F. Eyring.

In 1950, the pendulum was housed in the largest academic building in the Mountain West which also boasted BYU's first elevator.

The pendulum also has an adjacent restaurant named after it "Pendulum Court", all under the ever-watchful eye of a large Allosaurus.

Stop on by and log this waymark, there are a few fun things to do nearby.
