We got our tickets online in advance and were happy we did. The place was really busy! It is definitely worth the visit. The kids loved it and had to get a bumper sticker! The tour was fun, the guide was funny and nice. I would recommend!

A great outdoor fun house! Get tickets online in advance so you don't want to have wait for the tour times. If you get there early, go walk/hike around, and eat some snacks.

This a funny attraction, mysterious, old-fashioned curiousity. Just go and see what's in store and buy the bumper sticker. !

This place is weird, you walk into the area that is all twisted and not level and it really messes with your balance, be prepared to feel queasy like on a boat on rough water. It is intriguing how it makes you feel out of balance and it is all right there in front of you.

My friends told me not to visit and it's waste of money and time. But I didn't listen and visited the mystery Spot, it's horrible the way guide explain the things. It's not worth to visit.

Be sure to find it and visit when in Santa Cruz. Some facts just can't be explained, and there are several wierd ones here. Still can't understand why the birds don't fly over, but you can feel it during your visit.
