Aged and needs repair but kids loved it. Good place to learn and get wiggles out. Suggest you stop but don't expect much

A little dated? Yeah, maybe. Parts a little in need of reburbishing, Yeah, maybe, but really cool and lots of fun and as a Historian and well over 50 years old, a great old roadside attraction still in business! You shouldn't miss it!

Straight out of a 1950-1960's road trip! It's a flashback to the old roadside attractions! It's campy, silly, and just plain fun. Sure some of the statues are I rough shape but the experience of this place and the story on how it came to...More

We are adults, but we had a blast checking out the cheesy dinosaur sculptures. They have started updating some of them, but many of the original ones remain. This is a great spot if you want to take goofy pictures or bring your kids (probably;...More

How long should I allow for a visit here? Seems like a fun little stop along a road trip I'm planning.
