USA Titan Fireworks Rocket

August, 2022: Rusty rocket, Ferris wheels, and castle remain, along with a (seasonal, I guess) fireworks tent and Smokin' Butts BBQ shack. The area around the rocket is lightly roped off and includes several shipping containers. The BBQ was good but not fast. Interesting stop.

I saw this place as I was driving by on my annual road trip. No problem driving right in the middle of the property.

The grounds of this former fireworks compound were torched by a spectacular fire in July 2014.

I stopped to see the rocket and Ferris wheel on 6/24/16 and was surprised that the gate was unlocked and a large tent on the property was selling fireworks. Perhaps this is only seasonal, as the 4th of July was only two weeks away. Small signs posted near the road called it, "Ferris Wheel Fireworks."

Fireworks stores: you can't kill 'em. We actually appreciate the rocket and its surviving structures better now, after they'd been scorched by flames.

I stopped by there today (July 2015) to get some photos, and it's closed to the public. There's a gap in the fence, so we went in anyway. Much to my dismay, the elephant and the giraffe have been removed! There are still two Ferris wheels, plywood clowns, the rocket, and the World's Longest Firetruck, but a lot of the allure was taken with the elephant. The place is kind of littered, and probably isn't worth a stop unless you have a thing for large abandoned camouflage bras. It still looks pretty and mysterious from the highway.
