What is there to do?

Are you ready for something....strange? Well, it doesn't get more so than at the Oregon Vortex House of Mystery!

Here, it might just leave your mind boggled!

You see, the Oregon Vortex House of Mystery is where you can catch a glimpse of a very strange world indeed, where the improbable is just commonplace! Here, everyday physical facts are reversed, and the results might just stump you!

Here, the area is where naturally occurring perceptual and visual phenomena occur, and you can even capture it on film! Are you intrigued yet?

Kids - this is where your science classes come in handy! The Oregon Votex is actually a spherical field of force, which is half above the ground, and half below.  Its where this whirlpool of force finds you appearing shorter, or taller, as you approach magnetic north and south.

Did you know that a vortex is the building block of our own universe? Now THAT is pretty cool! People have been visiting this wonder since the 1930s, and is a fun stop over for kids if you are in the area.

Even the history of the area is fascinating, with Native Americans and their horses not wanting to visit the area, and they even considered it "forbidden ground"! 

So are you keen to see something very out of the ordinary in Gold Hill, Oregon? We certainly are - and don't forget your camera!
