Didn't tell my kid in advance. Her reaction upon entering the bathroom was priceless. Mannequin does not scream or wear a mask anymore.

No screams for us. We took our kids on 7/21/16 to show them and it was disappointing.

The mannequin still screams. In case your three-year-old wants to pee, either the mannequin or the screaming may make him or her not want to pee. Just sayin'....

According to employees at the truck stop, this mannequin has been screaming since the 1960s -- so uncounted little guys probably suffer from Pee-TSD.

Definitely caught me off guard when I walked into the bathroom...

Q: Why is there a mannequin in the tub? A: So that men won't pee in it. Q: Why is the mannequin wearing a sleep mask? A: So that men can pee.

The mannequin is still in the tub in the bathroom, but the speakers and such appear broken and are no longer working. Unless you want a mannequin staring at you a foot from where you are using the toilet, this stop is probably not worth your time.

The food in the restaurant looked great though!
