“defy the laws of nature”

Come see where gravity defies the laws of nature. Constructed around the slope of the surrounding hillside, The Mystery Platform and Mystery House feature a stronger than average pull to the north which causes some of our basic laws of physics to work differently than normal. Stand on our Mystery Platform. Notice how the person on the North side always seems to look larger there than on the South side.

Of course, the main attraction at Mystery Hill is The Mystery House, where there is a stronger than average pull to the north which causes some of our basic laws of physics to work differently than normal.Walk or try to walk into our Mystery House. You'll notice the gravitational pull as soon as you walk in. Your body will be at a 45° angle even though you are trying to stand at a 90° angle. Watch a ball and water flow up hill. Try other fascinating experiments! Come feel the power of Mystery Hill's gravitational anomaly! You'll find a hall full of puzzles, hands-on experiments and optical illusions at The Hall of Mystery. Exhibits are based on physics and other science and math theories. Leave your shadow on the wall and at the Bubble-Rama exhibit, encapsulate a friend in a bubble. The Spooky Spigot, Magic Lightbulb, Hologram and The Flying Mirror are all in the Hall of Mystery. You'll enjoy the Hall of Mystery where you'll find exhibits that make you take a second look and realize that seeing is believing!

Very cool place to visit! The kids (and you) will love it! Sure it's hokey but it is unique and you can really experience the vortex... Awesome!!!

Kids will LOVE it. The vortex room does make you feel strange but you can hold on to a railing or stay up at the top. We went through twice.
