Hustled out of main room saying we could come back so went on through. Came back to room and hustled out again because the next group was coming through. Kind of cheesy

It's definitely not worth paying full price for, but if you can snag a deal on it, it's a cute little place to visit, especially for kids.

Always go through mystery hill twice because you always miss some things the first time around. We loved it.

I felt like I got my money's worth with the Groupon, but if I had paid full price I would not be happy. The regular price of $9 each is too high. There should be more information to explain the phenomena or other places like it without having to rely on the "guide".

We had a fun time at Mystery Hill. Even the teenager had a good time. Thanks for offering such a fun family outing.

Check up on the bubble pools (full body and the rope pull structure) and see that they're full.

From Our Editors

Balls roll uphill. Surging streaks of water flow upward behind them. People struggling to stand at a 90-degree angle are upright at 45-degrees. Such are the laws of gravity at Mystery Hill's Mystery House, an enigmatic amusement center perched atop a slope that enjoys a stronger-than-average gravitational pull to the north. The same peculiar pull looms over the nearby Mystery Platform, where people standing on the north side always appear larger than those on the south. For more than 50 years, visitors have flocked to the curious hilltop to explore its strange gravitational pull and interact with other science-related exhibits.

Aside from the Mystery House, most of the museum's scientific attractions congregate in The Hall of Mystery, where guests can step inside a giant bubble, flee the chase of their shadow, or learn to beat the moon at rock-paper-scissors. Alternatively, Mystery Hill museums include Appalachian Heritage Museum, which houses antique sewing machines, books, and a list of the personal blog URLs of mountain families from the late 1800s to early 1900s. The Native Artifacts Museum assembles more than 50,000 arrowheads, effigy pipes, awls, and other accouterments culled over 70 years from 23 states.
