The concept is really fun: cheap drinks in the middle of a fairy forest. But it has become more of a family attraction and there are many families present which takes away the “bar fun” out of it.

A must visit to see the quirky decor and experience the indoor thunderstorm. The food is below average but it’s worth popping in for a quick drink just to have visited.

Huge line at the bar and mostly standing room only. Should have expected all the kids since it's part of the wax museum. Very magical in a Wall Drug sort of way.
