We enjoyed our visit here, they were even nice enough to let our dog in cause they were small and were contained in their dog carrier. I don't recomend you take your pets here though, for some reason they were freaking out in this place....More

This was a side trip from our visit with family living in the area. It was an interesting place to spend an hour or more. The guided tour is included with admission and is a must to visit the “house”. Bring your curiosity and have...More

Tourist trap that is now closed (to my last look). There for sure is a Vortex in Gold Hill (I lived there for several years) but this is obviously built to be a show and does not show the real vortex.

There are plenty of reviews out there that reveal most of this attraction as being due to optical illusions and there have been 'scientific studies' that explain away all but one of the phenomena here. (And that one is a head-scratcher for sure.) But hey,...More

Young children had some fun but didn't understand the concepts and want to play. The guide moves through the activities with little time to linger and no opportunity to go back. Great for older children who understand the concept of gravity. Wear comfortable walking shoes....More

I can't explain it except to say Bizarre. It's worth the trip to see it. One of the stops inside may make you a little motion sick. It's really a balance thing.

This is the original mystery spot, the others are replicas. It's still cool to check out but if you'll be disappointed that it's the exact same, I'd say skip it.
