That's a big loss for roadside Wikieup...

Fake Jail Cell Photo Op

The fake Indian and the fortune-telling miner at the Wikieup Trading Post are both gone -- replaced by a fortune-telling Indian and a realistic snake for your photo ops. The fake jail cell is still available.

Fake Jail Cell Photo Op

This is the first thing you see coming into Wikieup from the north on highway 93. It has two giant cacti, and a jail cell photo op. Inside there is a realistic looking fake Indian for another photo op and a fortune telling miner. This place has great cheesy attraction all over it!
