“Didn't thrill me.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I didn't think it was anything great. It looks like it was something that maybe people don't really pay attention to.

“Amazing Arcola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The story behind the art. I am not someone that looks at abstract art and marvels at what it represents , but when i read the plaques explanation it made all the sense in the world,this and the Lawn Rangers are truly Amazing Arcola gems.

“A Weird Attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

You will never see anything like this. The artist who did this was eccentric and this is probably no great work of art. But it is interesting in the same way a white elephant is interesting.

“Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

If you're able to lower your expectations and see this attraction in its true glory, you will depart with an extrasensory joy of universal happiness. It's also recommended that you smoke a big doob on the back side as a train passes to get the full experience.....

“Nothing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

There is nothing left on it. A Bunch of old rusted metal things. All the painting is washed out and not worth mentioning.
