What is there to do?

Some things you just can't explain, like the Bermuda Triangle. But did you know in America there is our very own Mystery Spot - right in the redwood forests of California! 

Just outside of Santa Cruz, there lies a strange gravitational anomaly that is a circular area of around 150ft in diameter. Within this spot, the laws of gravity change, and the laws of physics have to be questioned!

Why not head on down on your next family day out to see if you can work it out for yourself!

The spot was discovered back in 1939, and opened to the public only a year later. Since then, it's amazed and perplexed thousands of families just like yours! Some people even return to try and work it out!

Some people think that cones of metal were secretly brought to the spot and buried to guide UFOs...yep! Some think there is actually a UFO buried underneath! What do you think!

You can enjoy a 45 minute guided tour of the experience to the hiking trail, and then just spend a few hours relaxing and analyzing!

Kids will love the strange things they can do in this Mystery Spot! They can hang from the celiing, lean off chairs - and gravity won't let them fall! A very strange and weird experience for them, but one that will certainly give them a fun time!

So why not try and solve the mystery of the Mystery Spot, and if you can't solve it, just have a great time!
