One of my favorite movies from the 90’s was released on this date 25 years ago…Twister!  When I first saw the movie back in day, I thought the special effects were incredible…combines, tractors, and even cows being thrown into the air.  The movie starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt and took in over $495 million at the box office.

Some scenes of the iconic movie were shot in Iowa!  When Bill and Jo are getting ready for the F5 tornado, that scene was shot in Eldora.  When Bill and Jo are being chased by the tornado, that was filmed in Ames.

The house you see at the end of the movie is still standing in Eldora.  According to Road Side America, the house was open for tours at one time, but now the owners prefer to keep things low key, and not offer tours of the property/house.
