What It’s Like to Visit the Upside Down House in Niagara Falls
The Upside Down House in Niagara Falls is a sight you won’t be able to miss. From the outside, you’ll see the bright red roof on the ground. Windows and their planters are upside-down. And the floor is exposed to the sky, while the front yard faces the ground. At night, house lights illuminate the house, from downside-up.
Walk in, and you’ll see beds, dressers, coffee tables, rug floors and plants on the ceiling. The bathtub, toilet and kids’ toys hover above you. Even the dining table and food on it are upside down.
The Upside Down House provides some pretty cool photo opportunities. Some people attempt handstands to look like they’re touching the ceiling with their hands. Others flip photos to give the appearance that the person in them is walking on the ceiling. And even regular photos inspire double-takes in this house unlike any other.
There are lots of good photos opps outside, too, where visitors can push up on the roof and act like they’re holding the house up.
There aren’t many upside down houses in the world, so if you’re in Niagara Falls, visiting the Upside Down House is worth it, even for a few quick pics outside.
Going Inside the Upside Down House

- The experience can be disorienting. Some online reviewers report getting dizzy inside. If you’re under the influence, the effects can be especially disorienting. It can help to walk slowly and close your eyes and take a few deep breaths every few seconds to re-orient yourself.
- Kids love it. Online reviewers with families and kids report the Upside Down House is one of the most memorable Niagara Falls attractions.
