Sun Setting on Foamhenge

Mark Cline at Foamhenge.

According to Foamhenge creator Mark Cline, his megalithic masterpiece has been given “the official pink slip” by the state of Virginia and will be gone by August 1st, 2016. Foamhenge stands on land that’s part of the soon-to-be-official¬†Natural Bridge State Park, which apparently doesn’t want Mark’s styrofoam creation. He’s anticipated Foamhenge’s departure for years — frankly, Mark is delighted that it’s lasted as long as it has — and wrote to us that “The plan is to find someone (hopefully in the state) to adopt it. But it can go anywhere to a good home.”

While Foamhenge will move elsewhere, the property next to it will be home to Mark’s newest attraction,¬†Dinosaur Kingdom II. “A friend once told me when one door closes, another opens,” Mark said. “That proves one thing — you have ghosts in your house.”
