The site was investigated on a second season episode of the SyFy reality show Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, and although there seemed to be a small debate between the show's investigators over the “height change” phenomenon, they ultimately concluded that overall, all of the effects demonstrated were optical illusions. It was also mentioned on season 3, episode 11 (“Mystery Spot”), of The CW's Supernatural by Jared Padalecki's character, Sam Winchester. It is alluded to by one of the places that can be visited in the game Sam & Max Hit the Road. One of the locations that can be visited in the game is called Mystery Vortex and is located roughly at the position of the Oregon Vortex on the in-game map of the United States. In The X-Files an “Oregon Vortex” is mentioned during the season seven episode number five “Rush”. The Mystery Shack in the Disney TV show Gravity Falls was modeled after the Oregon Vortex. On their Season 15 premiere episode of Ghost Adventures, “Golden Ghost Town”, the Ghost Adventures Crew visited the location in order to ask why rituals are happening in the forests surrounding the Golden area and by extension, near the vortex and get an understanding on how ley lines work. On the Season 15, episode 10 episode of ‘’Mysteries At The Museum’’, hosted by Don Wildman and airing on The Travel Channel, explores a theory that the non-level angles of the floor actually warps visitors’ depth perceptions and cause headaches as well as nausea. This explanation could possibly account for objects appearing to defy gravity and the house’s ability to distort people’s heights.
