If you had visited Coral Castle in the 1940s you would have been greeted enthusiastically by a man weighing a mere 100 pounds and standing just over 5 feet tall. He would have asked you for ten cents admission and introduced you to his fantasy world. Since it is documented that no one ever witnessed Ed's labor in building his beloved Coral Castle, some have said he had supernatural powers. Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build the ancient pyramids and if he could learn them, you could too. Today, you can tour the Coral Castle with our tour guides. Narration available in English, Spanish, French or German, Japanese, and Russian. Features of the Coral Castle Museum include a 9-ton gate, a Polaris telescope. We invite you to witness for yourself what millions saw on national TV's "Ancient Aliens" "Sabado Gigante's Don Francisco" "Good Morning America" "That's Incredible" "In Search Of..." "You Asked For It!" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not". Billy Idol wrote his hit song, "Sweet Sixteen" just for us. Coral Castle is one of the Top 10 Historic Hot Spots in South Florida!!

As soon as I found out about this place I had to go. It was a little over and hour for us to get there but definitely worth the drive. We absolutely loved it!!! Tour guides very friendly and informative.

We have read about The Coral Castle for decades and as we now live in Florida, decided to check it out for ourselves. I can't say enough about the attraction. It is well staffed with very knowledgeable guides and real piece of Florida history.

Don't get me wrong, the coral castle is pretty cool. It's incredible how it was built and worth seeing...but not for the price. We paid about $40 for 2 adults and a child. It was maybe worth $10. First of all the location is kind of a strange place and doesn't seem too safe. There was a "security guard" in... More

I took my son to visit the coral castle when he was 5 years old. He loves math and science and found the site fascinating. There is a detailed map so that you can see how the giant coral rocks were moved. It is worth seeing for adults and children.

The "Stonehenge of Florida" is a very interesting place to visit if not for the story of unrequited love behind it or the beauty of it then at least for the engineering behind it. The creator was a small 5' man and the fact that he was able to create such a pretty place with such heavy rock using his... More

I was disappointed in the price of the tickets, they were about twice what I would have expected to pay. The guides were friendly, and very talkative. The flora was excellent, and the castle itself is neat.

Despite having lived in Miami most of my life I had never been to Coral Castle. I finally made the trip and I am so glad I did. The walking tour takes about an hour and you are able to walk around on your own after the tour is over. The tour guides were informative and seemed to really enjoy... More
