Price to go in is now $10 for each adult. Not completely sure it is worth the increased price, but you be the judge.

They still ban cameras, phones, and "recording devices of any kind" from being taken inside the Mystery Hole.

$7.50 for about a 10 minute mystery adventure. You must have a sense of humor to enjoy this attraction.

The Mystery Hole

The Mystery Hole is the greatest place in West Virginia. As a native to the state, I have full qualifications to say this. For one whole year I dreamed of the day that I would see The Mystery Hole.

On September 5, 2016, my dream came true. As we turned the corner to see the life-size gorilla perched on top of the tin can building of mystery, my friends and I screamed in excitement. The Mystery Hole is where Comic Sans meets the trip of a lifetime. Filled with pure ridiculousness, the Mystery Hole is a must-see before you die. Buy a t-shirt.

Glad that we stopped at the Mystery Hole. The place was full of visitors! If you get motion sickness, though, you may have a hard time in the hole!
