I didn't really enjoy this place. Visited in August 2014 and it was just way too crowded. I mean, it's a pretty cool place, but not worth elbowing your way through the crowds, in my opinion.
And if you're in a stroller, forget about it, it's almost impossible to be pushed around.
This was one of my most favoritest stops on Route 66. I got loads of pics of me in front of the whale. Next time I'm gonna go inside the whale, but I wasn't old enough this time. There's also some cool abandoned stuff laying around to explore.
If you have kids, and you're on Route 66, definitely make it a point to stop here. It wasn't crowded at all when I visited in August 2014.
I gotta say, the gift shop is pretty rad here. Most of the gift shops on Route 66 are filled with the same old stuff, coffee mugs and shot glasses. But this one has old-timey cowboy and Indian toys, like toy guns, little plastic figurines of green army men! You just can't find this stuff anymore. Kids will love the wax museum too. There's a movie to watch first and then you walk through a bunch of cool scenes with wax people.
Everything you ever wanted to know about bowling. I had no idea bowling was 5,000 years old! Pretty fun little stop on Route 66.
This place has great chicken and biscuits. Good for kids too, cause there's lots of stuff to look at. The restaurant is decorated with...you guessed it, loads of chickens. Paintings of chickens, little chicken figurines, and the staff are all super nice.
