    My sister and I went when we were young and wanted to take our 11 yo sons. It is still mysterious and fun and did not disappoint. Definitely bring a camera! It will mess with your vision, people get t...  more »

    Not as amazing as I had hoped for, but still an interesting place to visit. Our tour guide was great - friendly and informative. I wish we'd spent more time walking around and exploring after the tour. It seems pretty obvious that optical illusions are at the heart of the mysteries of this place, but if we'd played around with the levels and platforms on my own, we might have been convinced otherwise...

    What a fun place to visit! My guide was fun and informative. I definitely had a physical reaction being near the center of the vortex, as I am rather sensitive. It was a great experience, just a few miles from the Interstate. The employees were really friendly.

    The Oregon Vortex is definitely one of those cheesy roadside attractions that can be fun for kids and for parents. The experience is heavily influenced by who your guide is and the dynamics of your group, but if you just go with it for the hour or so, it can be enjoyable. Costs about 12.50ish per person. If you're a fan of Gravity Falls, you can see where and how Alex Hirsh was influenced.

    Fun, cheesy roadside attraction. I think your enjoyment will depend greatly on who your tour guide is. Ours was mediocre but we still had fun. It takes about an hour.
