Witness optical illusions that appear to defy the physical laws of science.

Gravity seems to work differently while you’re in the Oregon Vortex. The original building was used for a mining company in 1904 and was found to have a strange abnormality, appearing to be stuck within a “vortex” or circular forcefield. When Native Americans lived here, their horses refused to set foot in the area, and it was known as the “forbidden ground” to those local tribes. 

Many science experiments were conducted here, and it was opened up as a tourist attraction in 1930. When two guests enter each side of the circle, it will blow your mind. Their overall height seems to change, and it may appear that they are not standing up straight as they are walking.

This mysterious attraction is open daily from March 1 through October 31 annually. Groups of 15 or more people can receive discounts for their admission prices; please visit their website for more information. Pets are not allowed on the premises or during the tour; please leave them at home or a facility so you can fully participate at the Oregon Vortex. Guests are allowed to take pictures, but video or audio recordings are not allowed due to copyright restrictions. This unique place will give you an experience that will last forever. Don’t hesitate to stop by for a visit the next time you are in Southwestern Oregon.
