    Interesting for a few minutes then it just seems like they're trying to make it better than it is. I honestly thought it was bigger inside.

    Such a touristy thing to do but well worth the $16 admission. Take the tour or read up on the structure before you go. The impressive part is how one man built the structure in perfect balance.

    You can find a $1.50 off adult & $1 off kids tickets coupon in one of the little coupon booklets in your hotel's lobby. Drops the adult admission price to $13.50 pp.

    Amazing place. Carve out two hours. Watch the video near the snack bar and then take a tour. How did he make and place the rotating door?

    The castle, 25 miles south of Miami, remains one of America's unexplainable architectural marvels. No one's really sure how one man carved more than 1,000 tons of limestone using only homemade tools.

    Special featured include a 9-ton gate that moves with just a touch of the finger, a Polaris telescope and functioning rocking chairs – all made entirely of stone.

    Listen to the audio tour stops along the way around the 'castle'. The structure isn't impressive until you discover who and how it was constructed. It's amazing what one 5ft tall guy can do.

    South Florida at its weirdest! Head to The Coral Castle and try to figure out how one man moved all these blocks of coral (weighing several tons each!) all by himself. It's an amazing day trip. -WV Read more

    Сила тяжести в этом месте минимальная, неудивительно, что один человек построил самостоятельно все многотонные сооружения в этом месте
