Voodoo at the vortex

I wasn't expecting much, so it exceeded my expectations. Evidently they have been doing tours here since 1930, and they seem to have it down. It's hard to separate the vortex voodoo from potential optical illusions, but regardless of what caused people to change in size, or objects and water to change direction/go uphill it was still a good time....

This place is a blast from the past. I remember going there in early childhood. This time I will remember everything! Lindey was our tour guide. She was amazing and fun. We all got to do all we wanted. She didn't move on until we were all content. Spent a lot of money in the gift shop. Such a great... More

We stopped here from a long drive from the valley. Shade! Hot summer day and we had shade! The gift shop/museum was comfortably cool and substantially stocked with many "stop and look" items. The atraction itself was fun and entertaining. Our guide was excellent and soon our group of strangers were a group of friends exploring the anomalies of the... More

Want to know what travel across America used to be like. Check out this spot in southern Oregon. It's fun, it has a fun past, and enjoy the show. You will live it.

Yes, it is a bit of a hoakey tourist attraction, but their pitch is fun and the optical confusion of the building is unusual. I took my grandsons and they got a kick out of the experience. However, if you are expecting more, then you might be disappointed.

We arrived in time to join the start of the guide. We had some weird feeling like stomach turning upside down in the house of mystery. Mysterious. The guide tried hard to engage each and everyone which was appreciative. To us, the place is small and you will need a guide to enter the house of mystery.Therefore you cannot move... More

The Vortex turned out to be our favorite stop. It is interesting and confusing. I will recommend a visit there to everyone I know. It is so hard to describe the feeling you have when you are touring the site, truly an experience.

This is an interesting place to visit. Very unusual and different. Had an odd feeling while I was in the vortex.

Loved it!!!! But something to be aware of, I got an upset stomach while in the "area" but soon as I left I felt better. Still super interesting!! Hopefully taking my kids there for their first time this month.

I've been here 3 times and brought my fiance who'd never been. We both enjoyed the 45 minute tour and unusual phenomenon. Don't forget to ask for your military and AAA discounts!
