in Roadside Attractions

Aaaah, it's great seeing the survival of the classic roadside attraction - part obsessive compulsive project of a brilliant craftsman, part roadside hucksterism, Roadside America has it all. You are greeted by a very scary Amish couple (fiberglass, not flesh...) brandishing pitchforks and glazedly groping towards the unwary unruly child... The building promises gifts and authenticity, and after you give your money to the man in the box you're granted access to the overwhelming world of Roadside.
