What is there to do?

Get ready for the very strange! Do you think you have what it takes?

We’re talking about The Montana Vortex, which is a genuine quantum, or gravitational anomaly that may re-define the laws of physics and nature. Sound intrigued? Keep reading!

The famous "House of Mystery" is a crooked shack that sits right in the center of the smallest and most dynamic vortex. It was built in 1970 as an attraction, with the the slanted walls and floors inside the house accentuating the power of the vortex.

This sacred site is only 13 miles from Glacier National Park, and has been mystifying families and excited visitors for over 40 years!

Did you know that Native Americans were actually the first to recognise this naturally occurring phenomenon? In fact, they still honour it today with offerings of tobacco and sweet grass.

So what are you going to expect when you arrive at the Montana Vortex? That’s a good question! Well, when you pass through the “portal”, you will actually see and feel the powers of it. Here, physical rules like gravity and perspective aren’t what you expect.

They have guided tours which are lots of fun, and these last about 45 minutes. It’s on these tours you can ask how human beings actually appear to shrink and grow right in front of your very eyes!

With Golden Doors, heading Labyrinth, and Aura Spot and Hexagon that changes the growth pattern of trees, The Montana Vortex certainly is a sight to be seen!

Get ready and will provide you with lots of laughs and family fun as you explore and experience this unique energy field.
