Couldn't see much from the road in winter, but still pretty cool. The alien spider now resides at Dinosaur Kingdom II down the street.

T.rex head and soldier.

Mark [Cline] is strange but nice. He asked if we had "the wizard's broom" so we could come in. We got a lot of good pictures, and there are a lot of interesting things inside.

We recognize that dummy in the T.Rex jaws -- it's what's left of a beleaguered Union soldier from Dinosaur Kingdom!

We just happened past this, on the way to another roadside attraction. The gates are closed and it is obvious that it is still not ready for the public, but you can see a couple items over the fence. He has a building permit on the gate, so perhaps he will be back soon.

The Enchanted Castle Studios hasn't officially been a tourist attraction for several years. It's the workshop of fiberglass artist Mark Cline, so only open when he's there, working. He usually allows people to walk around and take pictures if they ask permission.

Horrid hand with face fingers!

Enchanted Castle

Visited the remains of the castle. The gate was open and Mr. Mark Cline was great about letting us look around at all the stuff. Three of his attractions have now been destroyed -- two of them by arson (the Haunted Monster Museum and Dinosaur Kingdom. If you get a chance and are out that way and the gate is open, he's in the work shop and will gladly let you walk around and take pics of whats left of his attractions.
