Three different locations are being considered to serve you better:
|1. The Fantasyland Hotel at West Edmonton Mall. Largest Mall in the universe. At least it used to be. Unfortunately, the indoor Roller Coaster has been closed down for safety reasons, but they still have surfing. Giant fast-food court. Early registrants will have their choice of theme rooms. Polynesian and Roman theme rooms are the most popular, but check out those 1950s theme rooms - the beds are in the backs of pickup trucks!|
|2. Wall Drug, Wall, South Dakota. You can't miss it. There are signs everywhere.|
|3. The Old Bavarian Inn, Frankenmuth, Michigan. With regular buses to Bronner's "We sell 57 quadzillion Christmas ornaments to tourists every year." Chicken dinners available 24hrs/day.|
