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...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.

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...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...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.

There is not a lot of walking, however, the walking you do have to do is downhill and the house you stand in is slanted, on a hill, making it difficult to stand up for anyone with good knees!

It's at 7800 Hwy 2 East, on the left side of the road as you leave Columbia Falls. Easily visible from the highway.
