This is a pretty cool little roadside attraction. My daughter spotted it from the main road and asked me to stop so she could take a look. I'm glad we did.

This is a quirky roadside stop, but one your kids will remember. Even my 12 year old went "that is cool" when the dragon blew fire. Unfortunately, only 1 of 3 coins worked, but glad we saw it.

We were coming back from eating and stopped by to take a picture of the dragon for our grandchildren to see. It has flame that will come out of its mouth if you insert a token in the machine.

My grandson thinks it was great to see the fire breathing dragon. We stop and buy tokens when he comes to visit.

This was a cute piece of art! Kids would love it. I took pictures so our grandchildren can see it. Too bad they weren't able to be with us.
