“Okay place to visit”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This place is interesting if you are into this kind of thing. It is free, but I was kind of bored with it.

“What?”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The detour off the highway was not what I had in mind for this site seeing adventure. I guess over the many years the hold has filled in with dirt and rocks so there really isn't much to look at. Browse the internet and it will save you some time.

“Tiny hole in the ground”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

There is nothing there. Don't bother leaving the freeway to see it! In fact, there is even an indictor at the middle of the "crater" that states researchers have never found evidence of anything there.

“If you didn't know that something had happened. You would think it was just another dirt hole.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Not really worth the drive or the money. There is alot more that can be added for information and video. you walk in and its a building with a counter and some magnetic rocks. That's the great extent of information, aside from some small things to read. It would be nice if they made it nicer.

“Not that bad”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

This crater site may not be as excellent as the one in Arizona, but it wasn't that bad either. I mean, if you happen to be driving throught that area, its a good aread to stretch and use the restroom. The entrance is free and there is plenty of parking available. There is a little museum with a small but interesting exhibition, and even a piece of the crater itself. However, the crater area is not that impressive and mostly when you have signs all around warning you that "rattlesnakes are awake" , which scared the kids a bit (and myself too).
