Depending on your outlook, the Mystery Spot is either a reasonably priced tourist trap or a gateway to another dimension where the laws of physics are suspended. For just $5, you can be the judge. The spot offers a series of surprises that challenge the senses and defy reason. Even the most resolute skeptics usually stagger out of the experience dizzy and perplexed, struggling to regain their balance and perspective – wondering how they were standing up sideways and walking up walls. Take care, though, as some visitors can get dizzy to the point of nausea. Avoid peak times (especially holiday weekends), and make reservations in advance as the tours can sell out. Tickets are $6 online ($5 + $1 service charge), and a free bumper sticker is included at the end of the tour.
