The family loved this. My husband was so into this and the youngest loved all the interaction with the guide and others in the tour group. It's all about your perspective. They really do a nice job for the tour.

It's a nice place to visit and, due to my daughter's obsession with the TV show "Gravity Falls" a necessary stop on our trip through Oregon. The premise of the location is that there are strange forces at play wreaking havoc with the laws of...More

When it comes to public tours, it's the staff that make a place "pop". Our tour guide was amazing. She knew the history like the back of her hand, and livened the lessons up with humorous quips. She was perfect. The Vortex itself is intriguing,...More

We drove several hours for is tour. My son and his wife said they really thought it was cool. I've see something like this at the Wisc Dells many years ago so knew what to expect. Our teen girls thought it was cool too.

If heading North on I5, take exit 40 and go through town and out the old highway, stay right when the bridge fork approaches a few miles past town. Stay on course and it will be on your right. There will be a sign. Have fun!
