Love this place. It really makes one think!! Not just for kids!! So many people make the mistake of not stopping here as they just think it's just a tourist trap. Take the time to stop in & take the tour! So much fun!

This place is a classic tourist trap. Is it a hoax? You decide! Either way, if you go in with an open mind, you'll have a blast! Stay a while and get a combo ticket for the best value. Lots of fun to be had on the mini-golf course, the maze, and the zip lines!

We took the tour with young kids and it was fun and interesting. Also did the maze, but the big highlight was zip lining. I'm sure for people who have zip line'd before it's probably pretty basic but we loved it and had some great views. For beginners the guides/trainers that went up with us were great.

As a kid I remember always begging my parents to stop at the Mystery Spot when we would pass by on family trips. I never did get them to stop so recently we too a camping trip to Northern Michigan and I decided to take my family there and curb my curiosity. I guess I was expecting a fun house... More

We went to the mystery spot primarily for some zip lining, they didn't disappoint! The zip lining is done in 2 segments, the first approx. 700 feet and the next approx. 400 feet. Reaching speeds from 25-35 mph it was awesome. Beautiful views from the second run, you can see Lake Michigan and the mackinaw bridge. With a height of... More

We did not do the tour, but played mini golf and went through the maze many times. The golf was pretty well kept up, not flashy, but just enough challenge to still be fun. We all enjoyed the maze and went through it a few times. The price was very reasonable. We'd go back if we're in the area again.

This attraction is interesting, but the cost is higher than necessary. It reminds me of an old tilt house at Knott's Berry Farm back in the 60's. It really doesn't match the hype. Kids would probably like it.

Always a grin to visit for good, clean, fun. Great place to bring folks that haven't been here before to see their reactions. Kids love it. Staff is still friendly....even at the end of the tourist season.
