This was a very cool place to see and good for all ages. It was a very interesting history lesson and amazing to see what one guy built all by himself.

Have visited the castle many times and absolutely recommend it. We take all of our visitors there if we have the time because it is a drive for us. When it's extremely hot I would suggest going early in the morning because little to no shade.

What an awesome place! The energy here is amazing! My family was fascinated with the story of it's creator! There are many mysteries in this world and having a place like this so close is a great opportunity to return and we have been there 3 times with plans to go again!!

Very interesting site and tour, we recommend stopping to see the Coral Castle for sure. Really nice how the tour is continuous and it doesn't matter when you join in.

$18 admission per person. Guide was fantastic!
It's a smaller place than pictures. Very interesting. Gift shop is way over priced $12.99 for any magnet! Way too expensive. Mood ring way too expensive. If there was no guided tour it would be terrible for the money-sorry won't return.
