“Definite tourist trap, but a nice place to stretch your legs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

After seeing the signs nearly every few feet along I-90 on our way to Badlands, we had to stop. Found a restroom (big plus) and wandered for a few minutes, lots of little rooms that are ostensibly stores but probably all "feed" the same company. Took a few photos, grabbed a bite to eat (see Wall Drug café for that review!). Interesting, nice place to stretch your legs. Kinda chaotic and pretty crowded, both with people and with merchandise.

“Glad we stopped but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Pricy food but one time stop...lots of shops mostly souvenirs. Packed with people and not real friendly clerks.

“Big shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

All it is is a big shop for tourists. It is interesting to walk through, it does have some history to it, but just a one time stop for me.

“Not great for grumpy old dads...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

but everyone else liked it. Be prepared - it is nothing but shops. Mostly junk, but totally fun for kids. In the alley, there is a water feature that kids can run through, and PLENTY of photo opportunities. They also get staff from around the world, so be sure to check out the name tags. My checkout clerk was from Lithuania.

“Interesting place kind of a tourist trap.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Stopped here because I was intrigued by the multitude of signs along the interstate.

Lots of things to see but overpriced.
