Weekends and Holidays

On weekends and holidays the Mystery Spot frequently has to close the road around noontime. When this happens it means we only allow reservations in. If you would like to visit during these busy times please purchase your tickets online.

If you come this weekend, without advanced tickets and the road is closed, you can still purchase tickets over the phone but there will most likely be a wait time that exceeds an hour. Just drive to where you can get cell phone reception and purchase your tickets online.

  • We accept Visa, Master Card, or Discover card for online ticket purchases ONLY. Total charge per advance ticket is $6.00.
  • Parking is $5.00 per vehicle and is payable upon arrival by cash or check only.
  • You must arrive 30 minutes prior to your tour time or you will miss your tour. Please call us if you will be late, we will do our best to adjust your tour time.
