They call this the greatest attraction in hami hole but its just a statue of a strange guy with lightning bolts. A disgrace to hamiltons culture, ashamed to be apart of it.

Statue saluting Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show, a fun addition to Victoria St. My friend and I were randomly asked to do the TimeWarp by a hen party for their photo shoot. Being 60+ didn't stop us. Funny things happen in Hamilton!

For any Rocky Horror Show fans, this is definitely worth a quick stop off for a photo on your way down Victoria Street. Free of charge, and streamed live via the internet!

Loved visiting on St Pats day and seeing all the action in town. Riff Raff square is a great space, with funky attention to detail. Cool spot!!

A must for fans of the musical, would have liked to see the statue in a more prominent position though.

Riff raff statue lit up with colourful lights at night, along with complete instructions to the time warp and spacy - themed toilet block. Quirky.
