Sphinx entrance at Pharoah's Lost Kingdom.

Sphinx at Pharaoh's Lost Kingdom (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Redlands, California

We admit we're suckers for Sphinx facades. If we see 'em from the highway, we're gonna pull off. This one is the entrance to an "adventure park" called Pharaoh's Lost Kingdom, offering water park, amusement park and arcade thrills east of Los Angeles along I-10.

We didn't actually go inside, but we liked the Sphinx.

Update: As the waterpark and trampoline attraction expanded, the Egyptian theme was phased out. Tipster reports in 2018 claimed that the Sphinx entrance was gone.
