It was very interresting and we had quite some fun especialy in the house of mystery, i would recommend to dress warmly as it is mostly outside. The tour guides are very friendly even if we where part on the last tour of the day. I would recomend it.

At the beginning of the tour, you are given a marble as your ticket to admittance. Hold on tight! The house of mystery is situated in the middle of a guided tour. The tour is very informative and interactive. Be prepared for some mind warping. The house itself is intense. Watch your step! You can literally feel the energy in... More

This was mostly surprisingly enjoyable. Lots of interesting visual illusions, which the guide kept relating to "quantum physics," a field he didn't seem to understand at all, but it was entertaining. It's kind of what you might expect of a vortex. If you're into the new age thing, you'll find it credible and fascinating. If you're a skeptic, it will... More

We have been here one other time 7 years ago, and wanted to return since the kids were older. So disappointing as we had a different guide than Joe. Definitely try and be on Joe's tours, he makes everyone comfortable and was at least more engaging and thorough with his tour. We had much more fun at the Amazing Fun... More

So, while our tour guide was less than enthusiastic and borderline rude, we enjoyed our visit. The house alone was entertaining enough for the kids. With a more convincing and/or enthusiastic guide and it would have been 4 stars.

A lot like the fun house at old time amusement parks in the old days. Grounds are well kept. Guide was very nice and informative. Kinda fun but not worth a special trip. Price is fair.

Beautiful setting but a little boring. The tilted house was fun though, and the owners are very nice folks.

Was a fun kooky roadside stop. I thought it was worth the $10. Interesting place. Take it for fun you never know. You may start to believe in vortexes. If not. It's always interesting to chat about big foot. I would say to stop for the break and have some fun

This is a total waste of money! Most of the tour is outside. All it is about is illusions. The tour guide talked so fast it was hard to understand
