Heurekan pääsisäänkäynnin edessä on pyöreä laatoitettu alue, jossa on käytetty ns. Penrosen laattoja. Penrosen laatat ovat tapa peittää taso jaksottomasti pienellä joukolla erilaisia monikulmioita. Ne ovat saaneet nimensä 1970-luvulla matemaatikko Roger Penrosen mukaan.
Penrosen laatoille on vapaa pääsy.
