This place is pretty cool and off the beaten path in my opinion. The attractions are pretty mind blowing too. This is definitely fun for kids or adults who are into mind tricks/visual tricks. Pretty fun place.

It's worth the visit just because it is so weird. There are some things that just be explained. this is one of them.

This was a pretty amazing experience however, we had to leave the tour early because we both felt like we were seasick. There is definitely weird anomalies happening in this neck of the woods backed up by things that are unexplainable like lack of wildlife! The tour guide definitely knew her stuff and made the tour fun and interesting. Just... More

This is the original "crooked house" (there is another in Santa Cruz, CA and Knotts Berry farm in Anaheim, CA). This "unexplained naturally-occuring phenomena" is both interesting and fun! Along with a complete explanation of what is happening here and past efforts to prove or disprove the phenomena, visitors are encouraged to bring their own levels or other tools and... More

I visited the Oregon Vortex years ago. I have to admit that my expectations were not particularly high. We learned about this attraction through a leaflet in our hotel's lobby. As we were travelling up north, and the Vortex was on our way (except for a little detour) we were curious and decided to give it a try. We did... More

I actually visited in the late 90's. I will never forget it. T-here is definitely some weird things going on there. The girl I was with is taller than me, and we took a picture with her on one side and me on the other, and a pole we held slanted upward towards her. Then we switched positions. I became... More

It is an awesome place. My kids are 11 and 14 it is a very interactive experience, the guides are great and answer all questions. I live in Medford but we go back at least once or twice a year. They are always adding new things. Totally worth the admission.

First of all the entrance fee is high and then as they forgot to give me an AAA discount, and I asked for it, they said they don't give a credit after the fact, and later they said to wait until after the session. After the horrible three time recount of the same experience that placed a ruler on people's... More

This is of no fault to our guide, it's just that you drive for an hour to see a crooked house, spend an hour there, hear pretty much a fable/made-up story about a cabin that's defying physics - newsflash - it doesn't, and then drive back for an hour. We will never get these 3 hours back, and every minute... More

Good luck trying to figure thier tricks out, but just run with it and enjoy a great observation of optical illusion - or not?. Plan on 2-3 hours off the road to get there and join a guided tour. $12.50 per person and plenty of parking along with turnarounds for large trailers and RVs.
