My husband wanted to take me here, so we went and I thought it was really fun. I have to admit one room made me dizzy, but I still enjoyed it. Highly recommended! Cost was $7

I wasn't able to visit the attraction, because it was closed for the season (which is reasonable, it's February). However, I tried to walk up to the front of the building to take a picture and some guy started yelling at me about trespassing! I...More

Really, really tacky. The older guy who led the tour was the rudest person in WVa. I think a little power went to his head. As others have said, about 15 minutes is all it takes, and out of the 15 maybe 5 minutes are...More

We didnt expect too much from this place. It was inexpensive, disorienting fun for 15 mins or so. We were disappointed that they refused a military discount for a vet, but whatever. No need to return, once was enough anyways.

Definitely a tourist trap, but worth a visit. My husband and I found it hilarious. Tour guide was a little cheesy but definitely entertaining. Don't do it if you are honestly looking for anything groundbreaking. Don't expect anything amazing- just go into it with a...More

Okay, so maybe it is a tourist trap--but it's a fun one. Campy. Engaging. Fun for kids. Suspend your reason and take the plunge. You'll have laughs for days to come.

I have been to many Mystery Spots across the USA and this one is by far the worst. The "tour" is MAYBE 15 minutes long at the most, and the place certainly has not been updated or improved since the 70's. My biggest criticism is...More

If you've never been to this kind of thing, I won't give it away, but it does show how our bodies are built to automatically balance themselves. If you're in the area, enjoy the bridge, hawk's nest and the lighthouse as well. Be sure to...More
