    I live near Shartlesville, but I have never seen the village. I have put it on my agenda for this summer.

    Time stopped there in 1960. Still, if it isn't the way America is, it's the way it should be.

    I live about 20-30 mins from this place. I crack up every time I pass the exit for this. I've never went into the town nor the tiny village. Guess, I should have.

    that is very cool and I"m sure it took lots of blood, sweat, and tears building it. But how in the heck can you see everything if you're only walking around the outside of it. be really nice if you could walk on top on the thing via a bridge or something

      now thinking about it, I"m sure this was built for the love of building it and probably nothing more

    I live 15 minutes from this place. Went there in elementary school for a field trip! It is very cool.

    I have loved this place since I was a kid (a LONG time ago). We used to visit it every year when we went to visit family. It's outdated and kitschy which just add to the charm. Took my kids there about 10 years ago, and it was probably my first visit in 20 years, and I still loved it for the memories. This is one of the few, real American roadside attractions left from that era.

    It must be seen, It is way better in person

    I used to stop there all the time with the family on our way to Knoebels

      Knoebels one of the few parks where parking is free and no admission just pay to ride what you want.

    I'd love to see how they avoided stepping on stuff while assembling this masterpiece. Shit, I'd be afraid to move if I was fixing up something in the centre.

    Don't believe any of it, it's just TILT SHIFT.

    mind = blown.

    Those problems have been solved.

    I hope they all come alive at night while the place is closed.
