Interesting place. Fun to tour after years of driving by on toll road. Tour guide (son of owners)was very interesting, energetic, knowledgeable and told good stories of his experiences over the years.

I can think of a better word than cheesy. Also, it was similar to an infomercial when the person who ran the tour started to pitch the personal tour he runs in Egypt.

Outside of house and grounds were in need of a lot of work. Guide gave a lot of information about his upcoming trip to Egypt - almost felt like we were at a sales meeting.

From Our Editors

Driving through Wadsworth, Illinois, you might think that Dilleys Road has been interrupted by a wormhole. That's because a huge pyramid, surrounded by a moat and walls decorated with hieroglyphics, sits matter-of-factly on a lot adjacent to typical American homes. But the structure hasn't been transported from Middle Kingdom Egypt. Known as The Gold Pyramid, it was built as a private residence in 1977 by creative couple Jim and Linda Onan and features six floors, a three-pyramid garage, and a giant statue of Ramses II that guards the entrance. Guided tours take visitors around the pyramid's public areas—decorated with Egyptian-style furnishings—and into a replica of King Tut's tomb. To memorialize your visit, check out the onsite gift shop for costumes and souvenirs instead of pocketing a cursed artifact from the pharaoh's sarcophagus.
