The Upside of Upside-Down

Top Secret.With Election 2008 upon us, we decided to feature the future home of the next US President as Sight of the Week. But what the — ? The White House has been scooped up, whisked to Wisconsin Dells, and dropped like something with toxic cooties. What evil force could be responsible?

We can blame the Bush Administration only insomuch as it nurtured a favorable economic climate for an entrepreneur to build this upside-down replica thing and make money with it…

Top Secret Inc, in addition to defying gravity, appears to defy odds that normally pummel a “concept” attraction out-of-business after a few seasons in the competitive torrent of the Dells. Yet here it stands…

Top Secret does offers a great free photo op exterior, and the interior ain’t bad…. bigger and more involved than we’d suspected. And taking the upside-down idea to new extremes.

post cardAmerica offers other upside-down and cockeyed attractions, so perhaps it’s time to plot that Inner Ear Tour.

There’s an Upside-Down House in Lee Vining, CA. The Wonderworks arcade franchise added its own dropped-on-their-heads buildings to the skylines of tourist meccas, such as Orlando and Sevierville (near Pigeon Forge).

There was even a popular tourist attraction called the Upside-Down House, in Sunrise Golf Village, FL. Long since demolished (but the postcard lives on).

Seems like when it comes to upside-down, you can’t really go wrong.
