The size of a V-2, it's every kid's incendiary noisemaker fantasy. The adjacent fireworks store burned down in July 2014, but the charred rocket still stands. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [03/28/2009]

USA Titan Fireworks

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.

Unfortunately this one-of-a-kind fireworks and souvenir store has gone out in a flame of glory. I have often passed this attraction while traveling and discovered the bad news during my last trip north on I-75. The rocket itself may still remain standing along with one of the Ferris wheels, but many of the other statues and unique features of this location along with the store itself have been destroyed by the fire. As of my last trip in August 2014 access to the site was restricted.
