“A blast from the past! a true roadside treasure!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I couldn't believe that after all the years that I have traveled to different classic roadside attractions that I didn't get here until now! If you want to keep the past alive then get here and give back! It's worth it believe me! The hospitality of the employees and the atmosphere of the local area was a nice plus on this trip. I will definitely have to bring a few people back to this awesome well preserved treasure!

“Too Cheesy to Miss!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

If you ever had the pleasure of a Route 66 trip as a kid - this place will bring back the memories. From the cedar wood souvenirs in the gift shop to the King Kong at the end of the dino walk - delightfully hokey yet still entertaining and educational for children. Knew about it for 25 years but just finally used the g'kids as an excuse to go. Very much worth the $20 for three adults and two kids. We all enjoyed it and hope you will too.

“We're so glad roadside America still exists!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Expect a place for your imagination--excellent for small children and for roadside attraction buffs. Plenty of classic souvenirs in the gift shop, including an inexpensive vintage tour booklet. Would be a great site for a birthday party for the 2-to-6-year-old set. If classic tourism is what you are looking for, you'll find it.

“Really? You've got to be kidding me....”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I suppose the kids didn't mind it but I thought it was a complete joke. Yes, they have lots of statues, but they are ALL in awful condition and in desperate need of painting and repair. It took longer for our two families to unbuckle five children and pay than it did for all of us to walk through the "park." Mud and tree roots made up the entire exhibit, making it difficult to keep kids on the path. Luckily we opted not to try to navigate the stoller through the park because it would be impossible. It wasn't expensive, it was slightly educational, but I won't be returning.
