First off, if you find yourself near here, you're already lost. Second, it's not that interesting. We wasted time going to Gays. It's not really worth getting out of the car to see.

[Jon P, 09/10/2011]

At this kind of attraction -- where physical exploration and use are thwarted -- visitors must find a different perspective, or they will be dissatisfied. Perhaps instead we must visit a "2-Story Outhouse of the Mind," allowing the half-moon doors of inner consciousness to creak open!
