Everything is so out of whack at Confusion Hill that water flows up hill.

Confusion Hill's tour guide gives you plenty of lively tales of "The Hotel" and all of the moonshiners that lived in gravity defying hotel.

Confusion Hill is full of cheese but all of us even John were having a good time laughing along with the schlock.

If you like getting in on the action make sure to raise your hand and maybe you will get to participate in some of the gravity and death defying antics in Confusion Hill. 

I really enjoyed it but with everything off kilter despite standing still I had to leave as motion sickness was starting to set in.  Most people do just fine but if you are like me there is nothing wrong with just heading for the door.

I want to share a little bit of Idlewild Park's history for you.  The park was established in 1878 by the Mellon Family when they leased the land between their railroad and the Loyalhanna Creek about fifty miles East of Pittsburgh.  The goal was to encourage passenger traffic on the Mellon's railway by creating a picnic grove on the site.
