We’ve been saying here back and forth for the past 30 years. I still enjoy reading the billboards. If you’re expecting a 3 or 4 star motel then this place is not for you. The rooms are always clean and the staff very friendly. The...More

Okay, we broke down and stopped! Heading up from the south, saw all the billboards and knew we just had to stop. Quirky best describes the whole thing! But hey, clean bathrooms and picked up a couple of worthless trinkets for the grand kids! Next...More

It's really just a barely updated tourist trap with gimmicks galore. It's fun to walk around now and again, but not a regular stop for our tastes. On a positive note, we've stopped at the campground in the past for a night as a resting...More

Very much the same as I remembered from childhood. Several gift shops, massive selection of fireworks, & a couple of eateries. Several photo opportunities if you desire. There’s really not much to this place. Definitely a tourist trap. That being said if you’ve never been...More

We stopped for a couple hours to walk around while traveling south. It is mostly shops with "tourist stuff" but there is a reptile exhibit that although a little pricy for the size was fun to stop and see. It was a good way to...More

This place is the epitome of a touristy-souvenir shop but has anything you could possibly want in a gift shop stop. It’s weird to find something like this right on a highway and not in an amusement park or at the beach but it’s a...More
