Lot of information-Very little to see

It required to have a tour guide and stay within the group, appr. 45min... Lot of information and demonstrations. Not much to see beside the crooked house. Small gift shop.

It was built in 1904 by the Old Grey Eagle Mining Company as an assay office and tool-shed. This company stopped mining gold in 1911. A few years later this assay office slid off of its foundation on an angle and has been that way ever since. It was not until 1930 that it became known as The House of... More

Seemed like it could have been a fun place, but we were not told it is not disabled friendly. They didn't even bother to tell us before we paid admission. We found out when we tried to go on the tour and could not do it. I am really disappointed and upset they took our money for nothing. They should... More

The tour guides do a great job of showing you the different anomalies that occur here. This is a great side trip for families.

I remember coming here when I was just a young kid, and I don't think I appreciated then how peculiar and fantastic this little place is as much as I do now. The Oregon Vortex is quintessential Oregon. You half expect Bigfoot to walk out of the woods and step into a UFO. It is just that kind of place.... More

Friendly people. Strange, but worth the time to check out. This is not something you come across very often so if your in the area and have a couple hours then this is the spot. Figaro's Pizza is a good place to get a quick bite before going up.

Very enjoyable tour with a guide who has obviously has done this for a long time and enjoys doing it. The tour takes about as hour and most things may appear to be optical illusions of how people change in size, it was a great visit. It was a little expensive but the experience was very enjoyable. Would recommend.

The admission was high. But, it was interesting and our guide gave it her best, making it a fun visit for our group. Nice to have been there, but once is enough to have the understanding and experience of it.

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
