Rubbish Tuesday - Enchanted Castle



I think this is a giant tick who ate a man...maybe?

So just a teency bit down from the zoo, yesterday's elephant, we saw this! Me: "WHOA! Did you see that? We have to stop so I can take pictures"! Oh my gosh, an abandoned theme park! How super awesome! Ok, I was a bit scared to walk around because I'm thinking there must be tons of snakes around in there. If I was a snake, I would want to live there, what fun! So we didn't do too much walking around. But I did find THIS STORY about the place so maybe we can go back in the snake-free winter and see more! I would love to snoop on the other side of the fence.

Not long after we moved here, the boys wanted me to take them to the monster museum (mentioned in the link above) but it burned down before we got a chance. That's what I get for procrastinating. What a bummer though. All this guys hard work, up in flames. I've shown you some of his work before RIGHT HERE...

I'm wondering if the elephant is his work as well?

  2. A fantastic find. I would have been wary about snakes inhabiting a deserted theme park too.

  13. This is the same guy who made the girl that was setting on the balcony of the Taubman a while back, passing drivers kept calling the police as she looked so real. He did a big ape for them as well. Someone burnt his place down years ago because he was doing the devil's work and then a couple years ago someone torched it again as it suddenly burst into flames for no reason. Here is a link to him: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/9210

  17. Fun pictures! For a while Cline's dinosaurs were placed around in one of the towns ... I think it was Glasgow. We were startled to see them when we happened to drive through. And one time we stopped at a diner near Lexington and Cline's truck was outside with a monster's tail sticking out!
    Wikipedia has a page about him.

  18. I love this place! http://katie-randomnest.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/were-not-worthy.html Talking to the locals though, I can't believe that his work really bothers some people. It makes me smile.

  19. Wow! What an amazing, surreal place. Can't say I'd be keen to go there if there were snakes roaming around either ... eeek! All the best, Bonny

  20. A giant tick who ate a man? Sounds about right to me! Mr. Cline seems to like adding his sense of humor to his work. I hope you do go back in the winter. Would love to see more. Thanks for linking up!

  21. Tanya, I don't know how you find them! (Though I have a lead on a crazy place in Middletown . . . ) I read the article about Mr. Clline. Crazy!
