Top Secret - Upside-Down White House

As happens to all things in the dells at some point this seems to have lost it's steam. We had no tour guide, had no clue what we were to be thinking or why this place was the way it was. Still a cool building, and at times disorienting. The barrel roll room was probably one of the most successful that I have been in.

Break-in at the White House - Top Secret

Wisconsin Dells' newest attraction -- Top Secret -- an upside-down White House, was broken into after hours on June 13. Two teenagers, one a former staffer, were charged with burglary, stealing a safe, $1,475 in cash, office equipment, and the master computer disk that controls all the animatronics in the attraction.

Top Secret - Upside-Down White House

Top Secret looks GREAT from the outside...a huge, upside-down White House with a car, flashing its emergency lights, slammed into the side. What wonders could lurk inside this attraction? With a name like "Top Secret", nobody is going to tell you. You have to find out yourself.

Don't bother. There are a few rooms, one with an alien operation (autopsy) going on, an upside-down Oval Office with a mannequin -- "Our President" -- Bill Clinton (isn't he in Harlem now?) making Monica jokes, a few (and I mean FEW) surprise "jump-out-at-yous," one cool section of floor with rolling walls, and then the grand finale...an ATM and Coke machine as you are unceremoniously dumped by the tour guide so she can go get the next unsuspecting batch of $12 paying fools. It looks like an attraction that had a big promoter at first, who then bailed after constructing the outside and left the filling up of the inside to whoever took it over.

You make it sound pretty good, actually.
