A trip to Mystery Hill May not be fir those faint of heart or with medical problems. The gravational pull may be too much for those with blood pressure problems or other health issues. It is a fun and funny trip for children of all...More

This is a very fun place to visit, it has some funky things and don’t miss trying to keep your balance in the upside down room! So much fun and very reasonably priced admission.
