    Wisconsin's "Wonder Spot" To Close

    This story has been making the news services with surprising frequency the last few days:

    http://news.aol.com/topnews/articles...00010000000001

    I had been to the Wonder Spot a few times in my life. It was basically the same thing as Knott's Berry Farm's old (now gone) "Haunted Shack" attraction.

    I always loved these kinds of roadside amusements. Such simple pleasures. Sad to see so many of them headed into the "remember when" file.

    You know...there's actually a small slice from these gravity-defying places in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. It's the "Magnetic Mystery Mine" on Tom Sawyer Island. Through tricking the eye via a slant-perspective cave...cave water in this section appears to flow uphill.
