This absolutely is NOT an optical illusion. It is a real distortion of sensual reality. A great conversation starter. Physics, photography, science, gravity, electromagnetic field, tram lines, ley lines, energy fields. A Field trip for everyone. Quiet little out of the way place in nature....More

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.

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!...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...More

If heading North on I5, take exit 40 and go through town and out the old highway, stay right when the bridge fork approaches a few miles past town. Stay on course and it will be on your right. There will be a sign. Have fun!
