Jungle Jim's Eastgate

Awesome place to find items out of the norm. Giant grocery store. Check out the bathrooms!

Atlas at Jungle Jim's

Jungle Jim's Eastgate

This place is unbelievable. It took us hours to go through Jungle Jim's, and that was rushing. So unique. Go and take pictures of everything.

King of Pop.

Jungle Jim's Eastgate

This place is unbelievably odd and very worth a stop! Go to the King of Pop soda section and click the button to watch Michael Jackson dance. Also, watch the movie where Jim explains the store's founding story.

Jungle Jim's.

Jungle Jim's Eastgate

Second, newer location, a counterpart to the one in Fairfield. Shiny, with more over-the-top displays and animatronics. The candy department reuses the cauldrons from an old King's Island ride, and the beer and wine department features an airport boarding lounge with seats.

Visitors can book guided tours of the store via its website.
