Located in the outskirts of Santa Cruz, CA, this Mystery Spot was just that, mysterious. I loved it as did my children. There are actual boundaries to the area where when you step inside the boundaries things change. Trees grow differently, there aren't bugs and animals, and gravity does strange things. I had with me 3 of my children. Two of them participated in some of the oddities. For instance, there was a board on which a level was placed to show you that the board was level. My 14 year old stood on one end and my 11 year old on the other. At certain ends of the board, the 14 year old appeared to tower over the 11 year old but if they switched ends, the difference was less obvious. They say science hasn't even come up with an explanation for what happens in the mystery spot. We were taken on a very short trek up a very steep hill. In one part of the trail, you feel very heavy as though magnets are pulling you down and shortly after that, you turn a corner and the grade is steeper but it is an easier climb. There is a "crooked" house atop the hill at the center of the mystery spot. You can stand at all sorts of strange angles like you shouldn't be able to without laying on the side of the hill or house. It is not something that I can truly explain. My only suggestion is you have to see it to believe it.
