This was a quick weekend trip for fun. My daughter 11 is a huge fan of the weird and off the wall stuff. After a Google search I found this little gem. Even in the rain we had a great time. They were kind enough to have a stash of umbrellas for the unprepared so you could enjoy the tour.... More

We spent the better part of an afternoon here and had a blast. There was a group of 6 of us ranging in age from 21 to 50 and we all had fun. The guide was informative and entertaining. There was a taro card reader there and all six of us gave it a whirl - it was a little... More

We stopped here after spending a couple days at Glacier and Kalispell. It has a great little gift shop and the guide is full of all sorts of interesting information. It really does make you think twice about reality! Really unique.

We were using up time before catching our train, so we stopped for a visit. Lots of fun. It was interesting, there was only three of us, so we all got to try the different features. We enjoyed visiting with the owners and checking out the shop. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

It was very interresting and we had quite some fun especialy in the house of mystery, i would recommend to dress warmly as it is mostly outside. The tour guides are very friendly even if we where part on the last tour of the day. I would recomend it.

At the beginning of the tour, you are given a marble as your ticket to admittance. Hold on tight! The house of mystery is situated in the middle of a guided tour. The tour is very informative and interactive. Be prepared for some mind warping. The house itself is intense. Watch your step! You can literally feel the energy in... More

This was mostly surprisingly enjoyable. Lots of interesting visual illusions, which the guide kept relating to "quantum physics," a field he didn't seem to understand at all, but it was entertaining. It's kind of what you might expect of a vortex. If you're into the new age thing, you'll find it credible and fascinating. If you're a skeptic, it will... More

We have been here one other time 7 years ago, and wanted to return since the kids were older. So disappointing as we had a different guide than Joe. Definitely try and be on Joe's tours, he makes everyone comfortable and was at least more engaging and thorough with his tour. We had much more fun at the Amazing Fun... More

So, while our tour guide was less than enthusiastic and borderline rude, we enjoyed our visit. The house alone was entertaining enough for the kids. With a more convincing and/or enthusiastic guide and it would have been 4 stars.

A lot like the fun house at old time amusement parks in the old days. Grounds are well kept. Guide was very nice and informative. Kinda fun but not worth a special trip. Price is fair.
