Fun to check out all the Dukes of Hazard memorabilia, go carts if you want, but the track is small. Picture with the General Lee using your own camera only $5, and they let us take multiple pictures.

We went here to try to find some collectibles in the gift shop and didn't ride the go-carts so we can't comment on those. The gift shop wasn't anything to write home about. Mostly cheap items for kids. The parking next to the place was expensive.

Every Friday night we lived out our crazy car driving car wrecking dreams with the duke boys on CBS tv. Now you can walk down memory lane and see so many duke related items at cooters. The cast visits every so often so you can get pics and talk stories. We had a great time and got a pic with one of the actual general lee cars.

The Indoor Putt-Putt was a little off-putting... It was stifling upstairs, lights too bright, there was no music or anything playing over the speakers, & just an all around weird vibe. The memorabilia was interesting, though. The go karts were okay - they only went one direction. But, a plus is that since no one else was there, we got to ride for what seemed like 10 minutes. Maybe this would have been more fun in the evening or with a larger group of people.
