It's not a haunted house -- but everything here is upside down. Furniture, toilets -- you name it ... Visitors are lining up for a chance to see the topsy turvy abode, located just outside Shanghai in an arts district. But taking a tour can be a little disorienting. SOUNDBITE: Visitor 27-year-old Huang Qi, saying (Mandarin): "I've felt a little dizzy since I came in. everything has been turned upside-down. It's pretty interesting." SOUNDBITE: Visitor Sun Mingjiao, saying (Mandarin): "The little toilet in the bathroom made the biggest impression on me. I think its design is pretty innovative. Normal people may not think about it this way, but when I took a look at it inside, I had the feeling that water might fall out of it. It made me feel really strange." A visit to the house costs 30 Yuan, which is about 5 U.S. dollars. Not bad for a chance to walk on the wild side.
