In the Las Vegas inspired Abt atrium, it’s like you’ve been transported into another world, with a magnificent water fountain, dancing for all to see. Surrounding the fountain are the different boutiques that make the atrium unique.
Mike Abt and his family were visiting a museum in Broomfield, CO., when he saw a bubble machine. He thought it would be a great attraction for the store. So when he got back he described the bubble machine to our woodshop and they created a tall rectangle with a large ring-shaped moat, where the bubbles and wand would stay. By pulling a cord, a large hula-hoop-like ring draws a giant bubble up, to surround kids and even adults too.
Mine-Control and Zachary Booth Simpson created the interactive butterfly attraction at Abt. Stand in front of the 150 screen where your shadow is displayed. Hundreds of butterflies surround you eventually landing on your shoulder, outstretched hand, or even your head.
Weekends at Abt are filled with customers, bargains, and the sweet smell of fresh baked cookies. Each weekend, Abts famous cookie kitchen is staffed with the cookie girls who give our customers warm cookies and coffee, with a smile.
Abt is home to a very unique sculpture by San Francisco artist, Alan Rath. He created a pair of eyes that look around and blink. Rath used two 13 cathode ray tube TV monitors to display the eyes and they are controlled by an internal computer.
The 7,500 gallon, salt water Abt aquarium is home to lots of beautiful fish and eel. Each day the aquarium must look spotless so customers can try out our extensive line of HD cameras and camcorders. Surrounding two sides of the aquarium are the HD cameras and camcorders for customers to test on the beautiful fish and coral.
The Abt fountain, the center of the Atrium, was built by fountain technologies. Its waters dance gracefully for onlookers. The wonderful designers at Fountain Technologies have helped to choreograph the water to dance with music!
Abt has a German made 5,381lb granite ball in the showroom. It floats on 12lbs of water pressure and a 3-year-old can spin the globe. It actually rotates on the approximate axis of the earth, when someone isnt spinning it, that is.

George Rhoads created the audio kinetic sculpture that resides in Abts Atrium. The mouse trap is a large sculpture than sends a ball on a journey up, down, and around an intricate maze that is a wonder to watch. Kids and children alike are amazed by the sights and sounds of Abts Mousetrap.
