This place is interesting. They have a lot of information to share, pretty cool. Really makes your mind work, we bought the book after the tour. Neat to read and see the photos. I did get a discount with my AAA card.

It was amazing! I highly recommend this area for believers of the statistically improbable. I personally call it The Mystery Shack. If you are looking for the real gravity falls this is it!

If heading North on I5, take exit 40 and go through town and out the old highway, stay right when the bridge fork approaches a few miles past town. Stay on course and it will be on your right. There will be a sign. Have fun!
