    & Aquarium.

    At The original Bass Pro in Springfield.

    We went thru yesterday. $30. I honestly thought it wasn't going to be worth the entry fee. Boy was I wrong. It took us nearly three hours and we didn't linger much. It's an absolutely incredible collection.

    Highly recommended if you're ever in Springfield, MO

    Ive heard there are prescription pain meds if one finds themselves in that much Missouri. Otherwise, that sounds like a pretty good way to waste time waiting for the RV (wheeled or winged) to get fixed so you can get back to civilization.

    Tim, is it handicap accessible? I would like to go but need my mobility scooter for that much walking. Saw a preview before it opened as I live 30 miles east and local media covered it pretty heavy and I do want to go but definitely need the scooter.

    Definitely!

    In fact, the reason we went is because the older sister of the young lady I'm dating has ALS. She and her husband were in town for thanksgiving...they're from Fort Wayne. She's wheelchair bound and was the one who wanted to see it. There are multiple levels, up, down, up, down, but at every elevation change there's an elevator. She got to see every square inch.

    Second. I expected to be disappointed but really enjoyed it. It’s amazing how much they were able to put in there. But I wish they would turn the bear loose.

    I hope it is a 10 acre cage.

    Unless it is a disabled bear, it should be a crime to keep bears caged up. :sad:

    It's not 10 acres but it's definitely big...he has quite a bit of room to roam.

    But, on another level, I agree with you.
