We went here with a friend because we didn't have anything better to do over the weekend. It's okay to take a few snaps, but that's it. It's really not worth the effort and not something I would recommend others to do. If you do...More

It's almost located in the middle of nowhere. It's a nice thing to see, a different experience, but definitely not a must-do trip. You can take a bunch of unique pictures, but that's it. No big deal.
