If you had visited Coral Castle in the 1940s you would have been greeted enthusiastically by a man weighing a mere 100 pounds and standing just over 5 feet tall. He would have asked you for ten cents admission and introduced you to his fantasy world. Since it is documented that no one ever witnessed Ed's labor in building his beloved Coral Castle, some have said he had supernatural powers. Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build the ancient pyramids and if he could learn them, you could too. Today, you can tour the Coral Castle with our tour guides. Narration available in English, Spanish, French or German, Japanese, and Russian. Features of the Coral Castle Museum include a 9-ton gate, a Polaris telescope. We invite you to witness for yourself what millions saw on national TV's "Ancient Aliens" "Sabado Gigante's Don Francisco" "Good Morning America" "That's Incredible" "In Search Of..." "You Asked For It!" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not". Billy Idol wrote his hit song, "Sweet Sixteen" just for us. Coral Castle is one of the Top 10 Historic Hot Spots in South Florida!!

A Personal Fort

This guy built his own personal fort. It was interesting and our guide was very good. It was especially unique considering when and how it was built.

Interesting place and stories. The 45 minute tours are continuous so anytime you get there you can start. Our senior price was $12 and adult was $15. There are different stories about the guy that built this because they really don't have much real facts, but it is still worth the experience.

It is an interesting and unique place that isn't quite what you think it is going to be. The man that built this place was an out of the box thinker and it was fun to see his brilliance. Make sure you take the tour or you will miss his story and all the information about this labor of love.... More

This really cool place was built by an eccentric Latvian recluse named Edward Leedskalnin who allegedly left Latvia when he was rejected by the love of his life. He built this place in hopes that she will hear about it and come back to him. It is a very sad romantic story. I found this place through Groupon, and it... More

The story behind this place is astounding. A 45 minute tour gives you the whole story behind this American Stone Henge and the genius who created it.

The efforts of the original owner is amazing. The design of the coral features is both humorous and well as scientific. Be sure to take the guided tour or you will miss about 905 of the interesting features

We'd heard about Ed and his amazing ability to move huge rocks years ago and when we found ourselves in the area we decided to see it for ourselves. Although surprisingly small Ed's Rock Gate House deserves 5 stars. However admission is pricey and the actual info provided was rather 'paddled' and really only worth 3 stars. Still, it's definitely... More

If you like a love story and have an imagination, you will enjoy this stop. The kids will like the hands on appeal. This is about an hour stop, unless you want to linger. Park like appearance, take the time to read the brochure while visiting.
