Fun, quirky and straight up strange.

Idk what this Vortex has in it, but there is definitely something off at this location in the woods. Things are not as they appear, balls roll uphill and lots of other strange... read more

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. Great place for sellers of weighted metals. As for buyers, not so much, beware. Not... More

This is a crazy experience. There is a beautiful rural drive to the location. It's is a place for the entire family. They have a nice gift shop too. The guided tour is amazing. It's not to long and almost anyone can do it. The things that they show you will blow your mind. Mother nature has created a very... 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! 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
