An interesting and fun attraction. The strange occurrences that happen in that area are definitely mind boggling. Makes for a very unique adventure!

If you have a good guide, the carnival type sales job is enjoyable. This is basically a rip off. it relies on you being VERY gullible. Looks to me like the use a level which has been doctored to show things are This is the basis for them making you think what they are about to show you is amazing.... More

This place was fun and our guide was very personable! I realize there are more then one of these in the U.S. but it still is amazing to me.

We stopped here because it was on our way home from a camping trip and I had just learned about it on Travel Oregon's bucket list and I wanted to check it off. It is definitely interesting, particularly the house with its reversed uphills and downhills, but our tour guide was not great. She did not explain the phenomenon well,... More

It's a nice place to visit and, due to my daughter's obsession with the TV show "Gravity Falls" a necessary stop on our trip through Oregon. The premise of the location is that there are strange forces at play wreaking havoc with the laws of physics. The weirdness is observed throughout the course of the 45-minute tour. Everything seen is... More

Would recommend going here if it is on your way, but not going out of the way to see it. Think a lot of what they show you is an optical illusion but it certainly sparks some thought. A lot of height measurements got a little repetitive but the broom standing on end and the ball or glass rolling uphill... More

When it comes to public tours, it's the staff that make a place "pop". Our tour guide was amazing. She knew the history like the back of her hand, and livened the lessons up with humorous quips. She was perfect. The Vortex itself is intriguing, and the demonstrations are thorough, giving you a chance to analyze the details of what... More

We drove several hours for is tour. My son and his wife said they really thought it was cool. I've see something like this at the Wisc Dells many years ago so knew what to expect. Our teen girls thought it was cool too.

We enjoyed the tour, however it is very similair to the one we went to in Rapid City, South Dakota and Wisconsin Dells, WI. But we stilled enjoyed it. My children really wanted to go there because of the Gravity Falls cartoon, which is based on the Oregon Vortex. However, we did not find the Bill Cypher statue. Recommend this... More
