Our kids are into science and facts, but the vortex boggled their smiling minds all through the tour. Our tour guide was informative and made it fun for our whole group. I was skeptical at some things but for the most was mystified by the examples shown. This is our second time here, first without kids and now with them.... More

Driving south on I-5 there are no signs pointing out how to get to the site via the freeway, for good reason. I read about it on the internet, though, and since I was in the area decided to see what it was about, but not before stopping at Grant's Fred Meyer to be told where the interstate turn-off is...

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.
