Beginning March 1st 2017 and for the entire month of March 2017, Mystery Hill in Blowing Rock, NC is excited to announce North Carolina Resident days! All residents of North Carolina along with families and guest are invited to visit Mystery Hill for only $2 each throughout March as part of “NC Resident Days”
Mystery Hill located between Boone and Blowing Rock on Hwy 321 has been amazing visitors to the North Carolina High Country since 1948. Visitors receive a guided tour of a true gravitational anomaly that includes the Mystery Platform where two guests stand on a perfectly level platform but appear to grow and shrink as they switch sides and the Mystery House where the laws of gravity appear to have been forgotten as things roll up hill and visitors experience a strange pull to the North. After the tour, guests are invited to stay and experiment as long as they like before moving on to the Hall of Mystery with a series of Optical Illusions and Hands on activities including The Shadow Wall, the Spooky Spigot, The Flying Mirror, and everyone’s favorite Bubblerama where you can actually stand inside a giant soap bubble. Visitors also get free admission to visit the Moon and Irene Mullins Arrowhead Collection of over 100,000 arrowheads they collected over their life time and to a walk thru the 1903 Dougherty House the home of the founders of Appalachian State University. Also while at Mystery Hill visitors can buy a bucket and try their hand at Gem Mining at the area’s premier gem mine Doc’s Rocks, visit the Appalachian Fossil Museum where they can see a real Tyrannosaurus Rex Skull, and create a unique Old Time Souvenir Photo at Professor Finnegan’s Old Time Photo Parlour.
“We are so excited to extend our annual dollar days tradition beyond our High Country residents out to all North Carolina residents again this year as we celebrate 68 years of entertaining our visitors” said Wayne Underwood, owner and proprietor of Mystery Hill. “So load up your friends and family and come see us in the High Country for North Carolina Resident Days”
The NC Resident Days promotion allows anyone who works or lives in North Carolina — along with their guests — to visit at the discounted rate.
Students attending a North Carolina college or university also are eligible for the discount.
To take advantage of the reduced rate, visitors must present a driver’s license, college ID or local utility bill as proof of North Carolina residency. An employee identification badge or pay stub can be used to demonstrate employment at a North Carolina business.
