“Great photo opportunities”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

We stopped on our way home fr myrtle beach. Who can resist all the cheesy billboards? I was disappointed upon arrival because my five yr old wanted to go to the top of the giant sombrero but it was out of order. There are shops and good rest stop and restaurant and mini golf. A large fireworks store, a myrtle beach shop and plenty of other things to occupy your time. Its like a small town. We mostly enjoyed taking photos with all the animals. Worth the stop to make things interesting during travel.

“Now I know where Weird "Al" Yankovich was inspired”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Can you say "Tacky"?! OMG all of the road signs leading up to this place does not prepare you for how tacky this place really is ... Believe me after driving for hours it is truly kitschy and if you go with the right attitude .. Fun

“Roadside Americana”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We made a pit stop here on a Saturday and it was crowded. Lunch at The Sombrero restaurant was slow and just okay. But its fun to browse the mexican souvenirs shops and take a few photos.

“Like a car wreck, I had to stop to see”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

After passing by this exit for years, and seeing the dozens of billboards on I-95, I finally stopped. It's really just kinda comical. It's a rest stop/restaurant/gas station/wanna-be amusement park, all rolled up in one exit. Fks taking pictures of themselves next to a ten foot tall spark plug was knda funny...
Anyways, I have nothing bad to say about it and will stop by next time just to take a selfie with the tower behind me.

“A roadside curiosity but nothing more”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

A group of trinket shops and miscelleanous other low budget shops with little to nothing to offer. Numerous signs up and down interstate 95 end at a disappointing visit. OK for a rest stop to stretch your legs. There are some colorful animal statues that make for a few photo opportunities.
